Enjoying UTu in concert: A synthetic tRNA (tRNAUTu) was used as a substrate for three E. coli proteins: seryl-tRNA synthetase (SerRS) forming Ser-tRNAUTu, selenocysteine (Sec) synthase (SelA) generating Sec-tRNAUTu, and EF-Tu for Sec-tRNAUTu transport to the ribosome (see scheme). tRNAUTu can be used by the ribosome, thus allowing site-specific Sec insertion into proteins, including formate dehydrogenase H, selenoglutaredoxin, and glutathione peroxidase.
