UniProt functional annotation for P0AG55

UniProt code: P0AG55.

Organism: Escherichia coli (strain K12).
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Proteobacteria; Gammaproteobacteria; Enterobacteriales; Enterobacteriaceae; Escherichia.
Function: This protein binds directly to at least 2 domains of the 23S ribosomal RNA, thus is important in its secondary structure. It is located near the subunit interface in the base of the L7/L12 stalk, and near the tRNA binding site of the peptidyltransferase center.
Function: Gentamicin-resistant mutations in this protein affect translation fidelity.
Subunit: Part of the 50S ribosomal subunit.
Mass spectrometry: Mass=18772.7; Method=MALDI; Range=2-177; Source=PubMed:10094780;
Similarity: Belongs to the ribosomal protein L6P family.
