selenocysteine incorporation

id: GO:0001514
name: selenocysteine incorporation
namespace: biological_process
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: The incorporation of selenocysteine into a peptide; uses a special tRNA that recognizes the UGA codon as selenocysteine, rather than as a termination codon. Selenocysteine is synthesized from serine before its incorporation; it is not a posttranslational modification of peptidyl-cysteine.
