Ribosomal protein S11  plays an essential role in selecting the correct
tRNA in protein biosynthesis. It is located on the large lobe of the small
ribosomal subunit. S11 belongs to a family of ribosomal proteins which, on the
basis of sequence similarities, groups :
Algal and plant chloroplast S11.
Marchantia polymorpha and Prototheca wickerhamii mitochondrial S11.
Acanthamoeba castellanii mitochondrial S11.
Neurospora crassa S14 (crp-2).
Yeast S14 (RP59 or CRY1).
Mammalian, Drosophila, Trypanosoma, and plant S14.
Caenorhabditis elegans S14 (F37C12.9).
We selected one of the best conserved regions in these proteins as a signature
