    We are happy to engage in production of virtually any selenoprotein on demand by our customers, using a confidential work-for-hire contract. If you are interested in such products, please don’t hesitate to take contact!

In addition to our tailored production of unique selenoproteins, we have the following selenoproteins currently in stock for rapid delivery

NOTE: All our products are genuine Sec-containing selenoproteins, according to the specifications given below. Several other commercial vendors of recombinant selenoproteins incorrectly label them as selenoproteins, while they are typically sold as Sec-to-Cys or Sec-to-Ser substituted variants.

The human DIO2 selenocprotein is encoded by the DIO2 gene and catalyzes the conversion of prohormone thyroxine (3,5,3′,5′-tetraiodothyronine, T4) to the bioactive thyroid hormone (3,5,3′-triiodothyronine, T3) by outer ring 5′-deiodination.

We provide the human DIO2 enzyme with approx. 20% Sec contents, mixed with inactive forms containing Sec-to-Lys and Sec-to-Gln substitutions, at more than 95% purity in aliquots at amounts from 50 µg to 500 µg.

The human DIO3 selenoprotein is encoded by the DIO3 gene and catalyzes the inactivation of thyroid hormone by inner ring deiodination of the prohormone thyroxine (T4) and the bioactive hormone 3,3′,5-triiodothyronine (T3) to inactive metabolites, 3,3′,5′- triiodothyronine (RT3) and 3,3′-diiodothyronine (T2), respectively.

We provide the human DIO3 enzyme with approx. 20% Sec contents, mixed with inactive forms containing Sec-to-Lys and Sec-to-Gln substitutions, at more than 95% purity in aliquots at amounts from 50 µg to 500 µg.

The TGR selenoprotein of Schistosoma mansoni is the only major reductive cytosolic flavoprotein of this parasite, taking over the combined role of TrxR1 and glutathione reductase, thereby exerting a wide range of functions in redox control and antioxidant systems and being a promising drug target for treatment of schistosomiasis.

We provide the main the Schistosoma mansoni TGR enzyme with more than 90% Sec contents and more than 95% purity in aliquots at amounts from 200 µg to 3 mg.

The C-terminal tetrapeptide motif of TrxRs (-Gly-Cys-Sec-Gly) can be utilized as a C- terminal “Sel-tag” of any recombinant protein of choice, thereby enabling purification of PAO-Sepharose and Sec-specific modifications using covalent targeting with electrophilic moieties, eg. for fluorescence labeling or radiolabeling. We are happy to make Sel-tagged proteins to order. For further information on the Sel-tag technology, see the following publications:
