Ribosomal protein S3Ae 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 S3A (was originally known as v-fos transformation effector protein).
  • Caenorhabditis elegans S3A (F56F3.5).
  • Plant cytoplasmic S3A (CYC07) [1].
  • Yeast Rp10 (PLC1 and PLC2).
  • Fission yeast Rp10 (SpAC13G6.02c).
  • Methanococcus jannaschii MJ0980.

These proteins have from 220 to 250 amino acids. As a signature pattern, we selected a conserved stretch in their N-terminal section.
