This antibody reacts with mouse SPS2 and shows partial cross-reactivity with SPS1. A BLAST analysis was used to suggest cross-reactivity with SPS2 from human sources based on an 84% homology with the immunizing sequence. Cross-reactivity with SPS2 from other sources has not been determined.
This protein encodes an enzyme that synthesizes selenophosphate from selenide and ATP. Selenophosphate is the selenium donor used to synthesize selenocysteine, which is co-translationally incorporated into selenoproteins at in-frame UGA codons. This protein itself contains a selenocysteine residue in its predicted active site. The 3' UTR of the gene has a stem-loop secondary structure called a selenocysteine insertion sequence (SECIS) element, which allows UGA to direct the incorporation of selenocysteine rather than signal a translational stop.
