Ribosomal protein L24 signature


Ribosomal protein L24 is one of the proteins from the large ribosomal subunit. L24 belongs to a family of ribosomal proteins which, on the basis of sequence similarities, groups:

  • Eubacterial L24.
  • Plant chloroplast L24 (nuclear-encoded).
  • Red algal L24.
  • Vertebrate L26.
  • Yeast L26 (YL33).
  • Archaebacterial HmaL24 (HL15).
  • A probable ribosomal protein from Sulfolobus acidocaldarius [1].

In their mature form, these proteins have 103 to 150 amino-acid residues. As a signature pattern, we selected a conserved stretch of 20 residues in their N-terminal section.
