UniProt functional annotation for P15825

UniProt code: P15825.

Organism: Haloarcula marismortui (strain ATCC 43049 / DSM 3752 / JCM 8966 / VKM B-1809) (Halobacterium marismortui).
Taxonomy: Archaea; Euryarchaeota; Halobacteria; Halobacteriales; Halobacteriaceae; Haloarcula.
 
Function: Forms part of the ribosomal stalk, playing a central role in the interaction of the ribosome with GTP-bound translation factors (Probable).
 
Subunit: Part of the 50S ribosomal subunit. Forms part of the ribosomal stalk which helps the ribosome interact with GTP-bound translation factors. Forms a heptameric L10(L12)2(L12)2(L12)2 complex, where L10 forms an elongated spine to which the L12 dimers bind in a sequential fashion (Probable).
Miscellaneous: Has been called L10e and L10E in this organism; in this case "e/E" is for E.coli-like, not eukaryotic-type protein.
Similarity: Belongs to the ribosomal protein L10P family.
