Berry Laboratory

Resource Type

  1. Laboratory


  1. Resource Description
    "Research in the Berry lab is focused on selenoproteins, proteins containing the essential trace element, selenium, in the form of an unusual amino acid, selenocysteine. Most selenoproteins in higher organisms function either as antioxidants or in maintaining cellular redox balance. These functions explain the long-known antioxidant properties of selenium. In all selenoproteins whose functions are known, selenocysteine serves as the catalytic center of an enzyme, and its presence is required for optimal enzyme function."
