This gene encodes a member of the family of pyridine nucleotide-disulfide oxidoreductases. This protein is a flavoenzyme which uses NADPH for reduction of thioredoxins as well as other protein and nonprotein substrates and plays a role in protection against oxidative stress. It contains a selenocysteine (Sec) residue which is essential for catalytic activity. The selenocysteine is encoded by the UGA codon that normally signals translation termination. The 3' UTR of Sec-containing genes have a common stem-loop structure the sec insertion sequence (SECIS) that is necessary for the recognition of UGA as a Sec codon rather than as a stop signal. Alternative splicing of this gene results in several transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
