UniProt functional annotation for Q9RXK0

UniProt code: Q9RXK0.

Organism: Deinococcus radiodurans (strain ATCC 13939 / DSM 20539 / JCM 16871 / LMG 4051 / NBRC 15346 / NCIMB 9279 / R1 / VKM B-1422).
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Deinococcus-Thermus; Deinococci; Deinococcales; Deinococcaceae; Deinococcus.
Function: One of the early assembly protein (By similarity) it binds 23S rRNA. One of the proteins that surrounds the polypeptide exit tunnel on the outside of the subunit. Forms the main docking site for trigger factor binding to the ribosome (PubMed:16091460 and PubMed:16271892).
Subunit: Part of the 50S ribosomal subunit. Contacts protein L29 and trigger factor when it is bound to the ribosome (PubMed:16091460 and PubMed:16271892).
Similarity: Belongs to the ribosomal protein L23P family.
