Ribosomal protein S5/S7, eukaryotic/archaeal (IPR005716)

Short name: Ribosomal_S5/S7_euk/arc

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This family describes eukaryotic S5 ribosomal proteins and archaeal S7 ribosomal proteins.

Ribosomal protein (RP)S5 has variable N-terminal regions that affect the efficiency of initiation translation process by impacting small ribosomal subunit to function [PMID: 19969550]. RPS7 is located at the head of the small subunit which is a primary ribosomal RNA (rRNA) binding protein that assists in rRNA folding and the binding of other proteins during small subunit assembly in all species. RPS7 is also involved in the formation of the mRNA exit channel at the interface of the large and small subunits [PMID: 9582096, PMID: 9331423, PMID: 11686933].
