UniProt functional annotation for Q5SJ76

UniProt code: Q5SJ76.

Organism: Thermus thermophilus (strain HB8 / ATCC 27634 / DSM 579).
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Deinococcus-Thermus; Deinococci; Thermales; Thermaceae; Thermus.
 
Function: One of the primary rRNA binding proteins, it binds directly to 16S rRNA where it helps nucleate assembly of the platform of the 30S subunit by binding and bridging several RNA helices of the 16S rRNA (By similarity).
 
Function: Forms an intersubunit bridge (bridge B4) with the 23S rRNA of the 50S subunit in the ribosome.
 
Subunit: Part of the 30S ribosomal subunit. Forms a bridge to the 50S subunit in the 70S ribosome, contacting the 23S rRNA.
Mass spectrometry: Mass=10424; Method=MALDI; Range=2-89; Source=PubMed:16287167;
Similarity: Belongs to the ribosomal protein S15P family.
