Abstract

Biosynthesis of selenocysteine-containing proteins requires monoselenophosphate, a selenium-donor intermediate generated by selenophosphate synthetase (Sephs). A non-radioactive assay was developed as an alternative to the standard [8-14 C] AMP-quantifying assay. The product, AMP, was measured using a recombinant pyruvate pyrophosphate dikinase from Thermus thermophilus HB8. The KM and kcat for Sephs2-Sec60Cys were determined to be 26 μM and 0.352 min-1 , respectively.
