Identification of Selenocysteine in the Proteins of Selenate-Grown Vigna radiata

Selenocysteine, the selenium analog of cysteine, was identified in proteins of Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczak grown with selenate. To stabilize selenocysteine and prevent its breakdown, the carboxymethyl derivative was synthesized by the addition of iodoacetic acid to the protein extract from [ ${}^{75}...
