UniProt functional annotation for P0ADY7

UniProt codes: P0ADY7, P02414.

Organism: Escherichia coli (strain K12).
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Gammaproteobacteria; Enterobacteriales; Enterobacteriaceae; Escherichia.
Function: This protein binds directly to 23S ribosomal RNA and is located at the A site of the peptidyltransferase center. It contacts the A and P site tRNAs. It has an essential role in subunit assembly, which is not well understood.
Subunit: Part of the 50S ribosomal subunit. Cross-links to the A and P site tRNAs.
Ptm: Is hydroxylated on Arg-81 by YcfD. The modification is nearly suppressed when E.coli is grown in anoxia. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:23103944}.
Mass spectrometry: Mass=15326.2; Method=MALDI; Range=1-136; Evidence={ECO:0000269|PubMed:10094780};
Similarity: Belongs to the ribosomal protein L16P family. {ECO:0000305}.
