MetaCyc Enzyme: selenide, water dikinase

Gene: selD Accession Numbers: EG10943 (MetaCyc), b1764, ECK1762

Synonyms: fdhB

Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655

Subunit composition of selenide, water dikinase = [SelD]2
         selenide, water dikinase = SelD

Selenide, water dikinase (SelD) catalyzes the reaction that produces selenophosphate, the selenium donor for the biosynthesis of selenocysteine and modification of thiouridine to selenouridine in certain tRNAs [Ehrenreich92].

The enzyme is a dimer in solution and a crystal structure, with a Kd of 170 nM [Noinaj12]. The Cys17 [Kim92, Kim93], Lys20 [Kim93], and Asn87 [Noinaj12] residues are essential for SelD catalytic activity. A crystal structure of the C17S mutant enzyme has been solved, showing a set of conserved aspartate residues that are involved in Mg2+ binding and are required for catalytic activity. A reaction mechanism has been proposed [Noinaj12]. SelD contains an unidentified chromophore [Wolfe03a].

The CsdA, CsdB and IscS proteins can all provide the selenium needed for the reaction [Lacourciere00]. E. coli can utilize external selenocysteine as a source of selenium for biosynthesis of selenophosphate [Lacourciere02].

A selD mutant is defective in both selenocysteine incorporation and seleno-modification of tRNA [Leinfelder90, Leinfelder88].
