UniProt functional annotation for P0A7R9

UniProt code: P0A7R9.

Organism: Escherichia coli (strain K12).
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Gammaproteobacteria; Enterobacterales; 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). {ECO:0000250}.
Subunit: Part of the 30S ribosomal subunit. Interacts with proteins S7 and S18 (By similarity). Cross-links to IF-3. {ECO:0000250}.
Mass spectrometry: Mass=13727.7; Method=MALDI; Range=2-129; Evidence={ECO:0000269|PubMed:10094780};
Miscellaneous: Has been predicted to contact the N-terminal domain of IF-3 based on footprint studies; exactly how IF-3 interacts with the 30S subunit is controversial. {ECO:0000305|PubMed:11684020}.
Similarity: Belongs to the ribosomal protein S11P family. {ECO:0000305}.
