Ribosomal protein L29 signature


Ribosomal protein L29 is one of the proteins from the large ribosomal subunit. L29 belongs to a family of ribosomal proteins which, on the basis of sequence similarities [1], groups:

  • Eubacterial L29.
  • Red algal L29.
  • Archaebacterial L29.
  • Mammalian L35
  • Caenorhabditis elegans L35 (ZK652.4).
  • Yeast L35.

L29 is a protein of 63 to 138 amino-acid residues. As a signature pattern, we selected a conserved region located in the central section of L29.
