 Hello-For some time I have been tryng to express the mammalian selenoprotein
 glutathione peroxidase in a number of expression systems including E.coli, bac
ulovirus and now yeast Pichia, with little success I might add.  What I need is
 an expression system that will express ug to mg quantities of this enzyme for
kinetic studies. Has anyone successfully expressed selenoprotein(s) in yeast or
 other system and what is the sectret to your success.

 Any information in this subject area would be greatly appreciated !!
