Ribosomal protein L44e 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 L44 [1].
  • Trypanosoma brucei L44.
  • Caenorhabditis elegans L44 (C09H10.2).
  • Fungal L44 (L41).
  • Halobacterium marismortui LA [2].

These proteins have 92 to 105 amino-acid residues. As a signature pattern, we selected a conserved region located in the C-terminal part of these proteins.
