PROSITE documentation PDOC00900
Ribosomal protein L6e 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 ribosomal protein L6 (L6 was previously known as TAX-responsive enhancer element binding protein 107).
  • Caenorhabditis elegans ribosomal protein L6 (R151.3).
  • Yeast ribosomal protein YL16A/YL16B.
  • Mesembryanthemum crystallinum ribosomal protein YL16-like.

These proteins have 175 (yeast) to 287 (mammalian) amino acids. As a signature pattern, we selected a highly conserved region in the central part of these proteins.
