DeoC binds selenium tightly even after denaturation, possibly as a perselenide to a cysteine residue such as the conserved Cys47, perhaps indicative of a role in selenium transport (Lacourciere, 2002). DeoC is a survival protein required for MazF-mediated survival of a small subpopulation after inhibition of translation (Amitai, 2009). Half of the native protein still retains the initial Met.
