UniProt functional annotation for P26321

UniProt code: P26321.

Organism: Saccharomyces cerevisiae (strain ATCC 204508 / S288c) (Baker's yeast).
Taxonomy: Eukaryota; Fungi; Dikarya; Ascomycota; Saccharomycotina; Saccharomycetes; Saccharomycetales; Saccharomycetaceae; Saccharomyces.
Function: Binds 5S RNA and is required for 60S subunit assembly.
Subunit: Component of the large ribosomal subunit. Mature ribosomes consist of a small (40S) and a large (60S) subunit. The 40S subunit contains 32 different proteins (encoded by 56 genes) and 1 molecule of RNA (18S). The 60S subunit contains 46 different proteins (encoded by 81 genes) and 3 molecules of RNA (25S, 5.8S and 5S). Forms a heterotrimeric complex with SYO1 and RPL11A or RPL11B. Interaction of this complex with KAP104 allows the nuclear import of the heterotrimer. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:9559554}.
Subcellular location: Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=The SYO1/RPL11/RPL5 complex is transported into the nucleus by KAP104.
Similarity: Belongs to the ribosomal protein L18P family. {ECO:0000305}.
