  Domain Name: Rdx
Rdx family. This entry is an approximately 100 residue region of selenoprotein-T, conserved from plants to humans. The protein binds to UDP-glucose:glycoprotein glucosyltransferase (UGTR), the endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-resident protein, which is known to be involved in the quality control of protein folding. Selenium (Se) plays an essential role in cell survival and most of the effects of Se are probably mediated by selenoproteins, including selenoprotein T. However, despite its binding to UGTR and that its mRNA is up-regulated in extended asphyxia, the function of the protein and hence of this region of it is unknown. Selenoprotein W contains selenium as selenocysteine in the primary protein structure and levels of this selenoprotein are affected by selenium.
