FUNCTION: This gene encodes a selenoprotein, which contains a selenocysteine (Sec) residue at its active site. The selenocysteine is encoded by the UGA codon that normally signals translation termination. The 3' UTR of selenoprotein genes have a common stem-loop structure, the sec insertion sequence (SECIS), that is necessary for the recognition of UGA as a Sec codon rather than as a stop signal.

PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a conditional allele activated in beta cells exhibit impaired glucose tolerance, increased circulating glucose levels, decreased circulating insulin levels, decreased insulin secretion and an increase in smaller islets. [provided by MGI curators]
