Ribosomal protein S28e signature


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

  • Mammalian S28 [1].
  • Plant S28 [2].
  • Fungi S33 [3].
  • Archaebacterial S28e.

These proteins have from 64 to 78 amino acids. As a signature pattern we selected a highly conserved nonapeptide from the C-terminal extremity of these proteins.
