Ribosomal protein L13e signature


A number of eukaryotic ribosomal proteins can be grouped on the basis of sequence similarities [1]. One of these families consists of:

  • Vertebrate L13 (was previously known as Breast Basic Conserved protein 1 (BBC1)).
  • Drosophila L13.
  • Plant L13.
  • Yeast L13 (RPL13A and RPL13B).
  • Aeropyrum pernix and Sulfolobus L13e.

These proteins have 77 to 218 amino-acid residues. As a signature pattern, we selected a stretch of about 16 residues in the first third of these proteins.

Last update:

December 2004 / Pattern and text revised.
