Ribosomal protein S10 is one of the proteins from the small ribosomal subunit.
In Escherichia coli, S10 is known to be involved in binding tRNA to the
ribosomes. It belongs to a family of ribosomal proteins which, on the basis
of sequence similarities , groups:
Algal chloroplast S10.
Marchantia polymorpha and Prototheca wickerhamii mitochondrial S10.
S10 is a protein of about 100 amino-acid residues. As a signature pattern, we
selected a conserved region located in the center of these proteins.
