SEPSECS

On this page, you will find information about genetic changes that were identified in a UDN participant.

Sharing information on this website is not a requirement of UDN participation. Only descriptions about participants who give explicit consent will appear here.

Date of Report

Nov 09, 2017

Full Name

Sep (O-phosphoserine) tRNA:Sec (selenocysteine) tRNA synthase

Location
Chromosome 4 (4p15.2)
SEPSECS-Chr4.25146751_25146752.jpg

Function

The SEPSECS gene codes for an enzyme important in the formation of a transfer RNA (tRNA). This tRNA is involved in the production of a protein building block called selenocysteine (Genetics Home Reference).
