Ribosomal protein L25, short-form (IPR020055)

Short name: Ribosomal_L25_short

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This entry models the short-form of the ribosomal L25 protein. The long-form has homology to the general stress protein Ctc of Bacillus subtilis, a mesophile, and ribosomal protein TL5 of Thermus thermophilus, a thermophile. Ribosomal protein L25 of Escherichia coli and Haemophilus influenzae appear to be orthologous but consist only of the N-terminal half of Ctc and TL5. Both short (L25-like) and full-length (CTC-like) members of this family bind the E-loop of bacterial 5S rRNA [PMID: 17198710].
