    Lifespan varies dramatically among species, but the biological basis is not well understood. Previous studies in model organisms revealed the importance of nutrient sensing, mTOR, NAD/sirtuins, and insulin/IGF1 signaling ...

    BACKGROUND: Selenium is an essential trace element in mammals due to its presence in proteins in the form of selenocysteine (Sec). Human genome codes for 25 Sec-containing protein genes, and mouse and rat genomes for 24. ...
  • Santesmasses Ruiz, Didac, 1978-; Mariotti, Marco, 1984-; Guigó Serra, Roderic (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2017)
    Selenocysteine (Sec) is known as the 21st amino acid, a cysteine analogue with selenium replacing sulphur. Sec is inserted co-translationally in a small fraction of proteins called selenoproteins. In selenoprotein genes, ...
  • Mariotti, Marco, 1984-; Santesmasses Ruiz, Didac, 1978-; Capella Gutiérrez, Salvador Jesús, 1985-; Mateo, Andrea; Arnan Ros, Carme; Johnson, Rory; D’Aniello, Salvatore; Yim, Sun Hee; Gladyshev, Vadim N.; Serras Rigalt, Florenci; Corominas Guiu, Montserrat; Gabaldón Estevan, Juan Antonio, 1973-; Guigó Serra, Roderic (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2015)
    Selenoproteins are proteins that incorporate selenocysteine (Sec), a nonstandard amino acid encoded by UGA, normally a stop codon. Sec synthesis requires the enzyme Selenophosphate synthetase (SPS or SelD), conserved in ...

    Myriapods (e.g., centipedes and millipedes) display a simple homonomous body plan relative to other arthropods. All members of the class are terrestrial, but they attained terrestriality independently of insects. Myriapoda ...
  • Sadd, Ben M.; Cámara, Francisco; Guigó Serra, Roderic; Mariotti, Marco, 1984-; Santesmasses Ruiz, Didac, 1978-; Worley, Kim C. (BioMed Central, 2015)
    BACKGROUND: The shift from solitary to social behavior is one of the major evolutionary transitions. Primitively eusocial bumblebees are uniquely placed to illuminate the evolution of highly eusocial insect societies. ...

    Selenocysteine (Sec) is the 21st amino acid in the genetic code, inserted in response to UGA codons with the help of RNA structures, the SEC Insertion Sequence (SECIS) elements. The three domains of life feature distinct ...
  • Baclaocos, Janinah; Santesmasses Ruiz, Didac, 1978-; Mariotti, Marco, 1984-; Bierla, Katarzyna; Vetick, Michael B.; Lynch, Sharon; McAllen, Rob; Mackrill, John J.; Loughran, Gary; Guigó Serra, Roderic; Szpunar, Joanna; Copeland, Paul R.; Gladyshev, Vadim N.; Atkins, John F. (Elsevier, 2019)
    Selenoproteins typically contain a single selenocysteine, the 21st amino acid, encoded by a context-redefined UGA. However, human selenoprotein P (SelenoP) has a redox-functioning selenocysteine in its N-terminal domain ...

  • Mariotti, Marco, 1984-; Lobanov, Alexei V.; Guigó Serra, Roderic; Gladyshev, Vadim N. (Oxford University Press, 2013)
    Selenoproteins are proteins containing an uncommon amino acid selenocysteine (Sec). Sec is inserted by a specific translational machinery that recognizes a stem-loop structure, the SECIS element, at the 3' UTR of selenoprotein ...

    SelenoDB (http://www.selenodb.org) aims to provide high-quality annotations of selenoprotein genes, proteins and SECIS elements. Selenoproteins are proteins that contain the amino acid selenocysteine (Sec) and the first ...
  • Mariotti, Marco, 1984-; Guigó Serra, Roderic (Oxford University Press, 2010)
    MOTIVATION: Selenoproteins are a group of proteins that contain selenocysteine (Sec), a rare amino acid inserted co-translationally into the protein chain. The Sec codon is UGA, which is normally a stop codon. In selenoproteins, ...
