Ribosomal protein L34 signature


Ribosomal protein L34 is one of the proteins from the large subunit of the prokaryotic ribosome. It is a small basic protein of 44 to 51 amino-acid residues [1]. L34 belongs to a family of ribosomal proteins which, on the basis of sequence similarities, groups:

  • Eubacterial L34.
  • Red algal chloroplast L34.
  • Cyanelle L34.

As a signature pattern, we selected a conserved region that corresponds to the N-terminal half of L34.

Last update:

April 2006 / Pattern revised.
