UniProt functional annotation for P0A7R9

UniProt codes: P0A7R9, P02366.

Organism: Escherichia coli (strain K12).
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Gammaproteobacteria; Enterobacteriales; Enterobacteriaceae; Escherichia.
Function: Located on the platform of the 30S subunit, it bridges several disparate RNA helices of the 16S rRNA. Forms part of the Shine-Dalgarno cleft in the 70S ribosome (By similarity).
Subunit: Part of the 30S ribosomal subunit. Interacts with proteins S7 and S18 (By similarity). Cross-links to IF-3.
Mass spectrometry: Mass=13727.7; Method=MALDI; Range=2-129; Source=PubMed:10094780;
Miscellaneous: Has been predicted to contact the N-terminal domain of IF-3 based on footprint studies (PubMed:11684020); exactly how IF-3 interacts with the 30S subunit is controversial.
Similarity: Belongs to the ribosomal protein S11P family.
