O-phosphoseryl-tRNA(Sec) selenium transferase (SEPSECS) tetramer catalyses the transformation of phosphoserine (Sep) into selenocysteine (Sec) by using selenophosphate (SELP) as a selenium donor to convert the phosphoserylated transfer RNA (tRNA) for Sec (Sep-tRNASec) into Sec-tRNASec (Palioura et al. 2009, Yuan et al. 2006).
