PROSITE documentation PDOC00056 [for PROSITE entry PS00057]

Ribosomal protein S18 signature





Description

Ribosomal protein S18 is one of the proteins from the small ribosomal subunit. subunit. In Escherichia coli, S18 has been involved in aminoacyl-tRNA binding [1]. It appears to be situated at the tRNA A-site of the ribosome. It belongs to a family of ribosomal proteins which, on the basis of sequence similarities [2], groups:

  • Eubacterial S18.
  • Algal and plant chloroplast S18.
  • Cyanelle S18.

As a signature pattern, we selected a conserved region in the central section of the protein. This region contains two basic residues which may be involved in RNA-binding.

Last update:

April 2006 / Pattern revised.
