Domain

Ribosome recycling factor domain (IPR023584)

Short name: Ribosome_recyc_fac_dom

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships

None.

Description

The ribosome recycling factor or ribosome release factor (RRF) dissociates ribosomes from mRNA after termination of translation, and is essential for bacterial growth [PMID: 8183897]. Thus ribosomes are 'recycled' and ready for another round of protein synthesis.

This entry represents a domain found in ribosome recycling factors.
