PDOC00311 [for PROSITE entry PS00360]
Ribosomal protein S9 signature
Ribosomal protein S9 is one of the proteins from the small ribosomal subunit.
It belongs to a family of ribosomal proteins which, on the basis of sequence
1, 2], groups:
Algal chloroplast S9.
Yeast mitochondrial ribosomal S9.
As a signature pattern, we selected a conserved region containing many charged
residues and located in the central section of these proteins.
