Ribosomal protein S7e signature


A number of eukaryotic ribosomal proteins can be grouped on the basis of sequence similarities [1]. One of these families consists of:

  • Mammalian S7.
  • Xenopus S8.
  • Insect S7.
  • Yeast probable ribosomal protein S7 (N2212).
  • Fission yeast probable ribosomal protein S7 (SpAC18G6.13c).

These proteins have about 200 amino acids. As a signature pattern we selected a highly conserved stretch of 14 residues which is located in the central section and which is rich in charged residues.
