Ribosomal protein L15e signature


A number of eukaryotic and archaebacterial ribosomal proteins can be grouped on the basis of sequence similarities [1]. One of these families consists of:

  • Mammalian L15.
  • Insect L15.
  • Plant L15.
  • Yeast YL10 (L13) (Rp15r).
  • Archaebacterial L15e.

These proteins have about 200 amino acid residues. As a signature pattern, we selected a conserved region located in the central section.
