Gene Information

The protein encoded by this intronless gene belongs to the iodothyronine deiodinase family. It catalyzes the inactivation of thyroid hormone by inner ring deiodination of the prohormone thyroxine (T4) and the bioactive hormone 33'5-triiodothyronine (T3) to inactive metabolites 33'5'-triiodothyronine (RT3) and 33'-diiodothyronine (T2) respectively. This enzyme is highly expressed in the pregnant uterus placenta fetal and neonatal tissues suggesting that it plays an essential role in the regulation of thyroid hormone inactivation during embryological development. Knockout studies also reveal a critical role for this enzyme in the maturation and function of the thyroid axis. This gene is imprinted in mouse and preferentially expressed from the paternal allele in the fetus. This protein contains a selenocysteine (Sec) residue which is essential for efficient enzyme activity. The selenocysteine is encoded by the UGA codon which normally signals translation termination. The 3' UTR of Sec-containing genes have a common stem-loop structure the sec insertion sequence (SECIS) which is necessary for the recognition of UGA as a Sec codon rather than as a stop signal.
