PROSITE documentation PDOC00724 [for PROSITE entry PS00939]
Ribosomal protein L1e signature
A number of eukaryotic and archaebacterial ribosomal proteins can be grouped
on the basis of sequence similarities. One of these families consists [
1, 2, 3, 4] of:
Vertebrate L1 (L4).
Yeast L2 (Rp2).
Fission yeast L2.
Halobacterium marismortui HmaL4 (HL6).
Methanococcus jannaschii MJ0177.
These proteins have 246 (archaebacteria) to 427 (human) amino acids. As a
signature pattern, we selected a conserved region in the N-terminal part of
December 2004 / Pattern and text revised.
