Conserved Site

Ribosomal protein S5, N-terminal, conserved site (IPR018192)

Short name: Ribosomal_S5_N_CS


Ribosomal protein S5 is one of the proteins from the small ribosomal subunit, and is a protein of 166 to 254 amino-acid residues. In Escherichia coli, S5 is known to be important in the assembly and function of the 30S ribosomal subunit. Mutations in S5 have been shown to increase translational error frequencies. It belongs to a family of ribosomal proteins which, on the basis of sequence similarities [PMID: 2247072], groups bacterial, cyanelle, red algal chloroplast, archaeal and fungal mitochondrial S5; mammalian, Caenorhabditis elegans, Drosophila and plant S2; and yeast S4 (SUP44).

This entry represents the conserved site of the ribosomal protein S5.

This entry represents the N-terminal domain of ribosomal protein S5, which has an alpha-beta(3)-alpha structure that folds into two layers, alpha/beta.
