Homologous Superfamily

Ribosomal protein S17e-like superfamily (IPR036401)

Short name: RPS17e-like_sf

Overlapping entries


A number of eukaryotic and archaebacterial ribosomal proteins can be grouped in this superfamily of ribosomal proteins, S17e (RPS17e). They include, vertebrate, Drosophila and Neurospora crassa (crp-3) S17's as well as yeast S17a (RP51A) and S17b (RP51B) and archaebacterial S17e [PMID: 3240863, PMID: 2507396, PMID: 6092944].

RPS17e has a DNA/RNA-binding 3-helical bundle fold, which consists of three helices with a close or partly open bundle and right-handed twist going up-and down.
