Ribosomal protein L37e 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 L37 [1].
  • Leishmania infantum L37 [2].
  • Fission yeast YL35 [3].
  • Archaeal L37e (L35e) [4].

These proteins have 56 to 96 amino-acid residues. As a signature pattern, we selected a highly conserved region located in the N-terminal part of these proteins.

April 2006 / Pattern revised.
