FUNCTION: This gene encodes a glycoprotein that is localized in the endoplasmic reticulum. It plays an important role in cell protection against oxidative stress, and in the regulation of redox-related calcium homeostasis. Mutations in the orthologous gene in human are associated with early onset muscle disorders, referred to as SEPN1-related myopathy. Knockout mice deleted for this gene exhibit abnormal lung development. This protein is a selenoprotein, containing the rare amino acid selenocysteine (Sec). Sec is encoded by the UGA codon, which normally signals translation termination. The 3' UTRs of selenoprotein mRNAs contain a conserved stem-loop structure, designated the Sec insertion sequence (SECIS) element, that is necessary for the recognition of UGA as a Sec codon, rather than as a stop signal. A second stop-codon redefinition element (SRE) adjacent to the UGA codon has been identified in this gene (PMID:15791204). SRE is a phylogenetically conserved stem-loop structure that stimulates readthrough at the UGA codon, and augments the Sec insertion efficiency by SECIS. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2016]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele exhibit satellite cell loss and impaired muscle regeneration. Mice homozygous for a different knock-out allele exhibit subtle core lesions in skeletal muscle after induced oxidative stress and abnormal lung development. [provided by MGI curators]
