    • Relevance

      Selenoprotein M is widely expressed and expressed highly in the mammalian brain. It is localized to the perinuclear structures (Golgi/ER). A growing body of evidence relates selenium to cancer prevention, immune system function, male fertility, cardiovascular disorder, control of the aging and neurodiseases process. Selenoproteins are thought to be responsible for the majority of these biomedical effects of selenium. Approximately 17 selenoproteins have been identified until now. Although the function of many selenoproteins are unknown, some play important roles in antioxidant mechanisms. It has been also implicated in the regulation of signaling pathways through catalysis of thiol/disulfide exchange. The roles of Selenoprotein M have not been clearly identified until present time.
    • Cellular localization

      Cytoplasm; perinuclear region. Endoplasmic reticulum Probable. Golgi apparatus Probable. Note: Localized to perinuclear structures corresponding to Golgi and endoplasmic reticulum.
