UniProt functional annotation for P60617

UniProt code: P60617.

Organism: Haloarcula marismortui (strain ATCC 43049 / DSM 3752 / JCM 8966 / VKM B-1809) (Halobacterium marismortui).
Taxonomy: Archaea; Euryarchaeota; Halobacteria; Halobacteriales; Halobacteriaceae; Haloarcula.
 
Function: This is 1 of 5 proteins that mediate the attachment of the 5S rRNA onto the large ribosomal subunit, stabilizing the orientation of adjacent RNA domains. Modeling places the A and P site tRNAs in close proximity to this protein.
 
Subunit: Part of the 50S ribosomal subunit. Weakly binds 5S rRNA. Probably binds the A and P site tRNAs. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:12150912, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12860128}.
Similarity: Belongs to the ribosomal protein L10e family. {ECO:0000255|HAMAP-Rule:MF_00448}.
