26567579 overexpression of SelK can inhibit human cancer cell Matrigel adhesion and migration
25368151 IP3R palmitoylation is a critical regulator of Ca(2+) flux in immune cells and define a previously unidentified DHHC/Selk complex responsible for this process.
25117454 SelK reduces hydrophobic substrates, such as phospholipid hydroperoxides, which are known to damage cell membranes.
23133653 Polymorphisms in thioredoxin reductase and selenoprotein K genes and selenium status modulate risk of prostate cancer
22016385 Data suggest that SelK is involved in the Derlin-dependent ERAD of glycosylated misfolded proteins and that the function defined by the prototypic SelK is the widespread function of selenium in eukaryotes.
21220695 Human lymphocyte SelK colocalizes with endoplasmic reticulum biomarker KDEL (Lys-Asp-Glu-Leu) endoplasmic reticulum receptor.
21048031 Observational study of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
16962588 SelK is a novel antioxidant in cardiomyocytes and is related to the regulation of cellular redox balance.
