Ribosomal protein L18e signature


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

  • Vertebrate L18 (known as L14 in Xenopus) [1].
  • Plant L18.
  • Yeast L18 (Rp28).
  • Halobacterium marismortui Hl29.
  • Sulfolobus acidocaldarius Hl29e.

These proteins have 115 to 187 amino-acid residues. As a signature pattern, we selected a stretch of about 13 residues in the first third of these proteins.

April 2006 / Pattern revised.
