UniProt functional annotation for P0A7J7

UniProt code: P0A7J7.

Organism: Escherichia coli (strain K12).
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Gammaproteobacteria; Enterobacteriales; Enterobacteriaceae; Escherichia.
 
Function: Forms part of the ribosomal stalk which helps the ribosome interact with GTP-bound translation factors.
 
Subunit: Part of the ribosomal stalk of the 50S ribosomal subunit. Interacts with L10 and the large rRNA to form the base of the stalk. L10 forms an elongated spine to which 2 L12 dimers bind in a sequential fashion forming a pentameric L10(L12)2(L12)2 complex.
Mass spectrometry: Mass=14870.2; Method=MALDI; Range=2-142; Source=PubMed:10094780;
Similarity: Belongs to the ribosomal protein L11P family.
