Abstract

A sizeable fraction of the selenoproteome encodes oxidoreductases possessing a thioredoxin fold, a structural motif that is shared among a diverse group of enzymes. In these oxidoreductases, the active site is comprised of a cysteine and a selenocysteine separated by one to two amino acids. In a subset of these selenoproteins, such as human SELENOH, SELENOM, SELENOT, SELENOV, SELENOW, and SELENOF, this redox motif is positioned immediately after the first β-sheet in a short loop, and is essential for interactions with its substrate or partners. Here, we describe the preparation of a representative member of this group, SELENOM, by selenocysteine-driven expressed protein ligation. The preparation employs a peptide bond formation between two protein fragments expressed recombinantly in E. coli. This method can be employed to prepare other selenoproteins.
