Ribosomal protein S16 signature


Ribosomal protein S16 is one of the proteins from the small ribosomal subunit. It belongs to a family of ribosomal proteins which, on the basis of sequence similarities [1], groups:

  • Eubacterial S16.
  • Algal and plant chloroplast S16.
  • Cyanelle S16.
  • Neurospora crassa mitochondrial S24 (cyt-21).

S16 is a protein of about 100 amino-acid residues. As a signature pattern, we selected a conserved region located in the N-terminal extremity of these proteins.
