UniProt functional annotation for Q5SHQ5

UniProt code: Q5SHQ5.

Organism: Thermus thermophilus (strain HB8 / ATCC 27634 / DSM 579).
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Deinococcus-Thermus; Deinococci; Thermales; Thermaceae; Thermus.
Function: With S4 and S12 plays an important role in translational accuracy. {ECO:0000250}.
Function: Located at the back of the 30S subunit body where it stabilizes the conformation of the head with respect to the body. Binds mRNA in the 70S ribosome, positioning it for translation.
Subunit: Part of the 30S ribosomal subunit. Contacts proteins S4 and S8.
Domain: The N-terminal domain interacts with the head of the 30S subunit; the C-terminal domain interacts with the body and contacts protein S4. The interaction surface between S4 and S5 is involved in control of translational fidelity.
Mass spectrometry: Mass=17428; Method=MALDI; Range=2-162; Evidence={ECO:0000269|PubMed:16287167};
Miscellaneous: Is positioned such that it could physically interact with spectinomycin.
Similarity: Belongs to the ribosomal protein S5P family. {ECO:0000305}.
Similarity: Contains 1 S5 DRBM domain. {ECO:0000305}.
