Conserved Site

Ribosomal protein S2, conserved site (IPR018130)

Short name: Ribosomal_S2_CS


Ribosomal protein S2 is is a protein of 235 to 394 amino-acid residues and is one of the proteins from the small ribosomal subunit. S2 belongs to a family of ribosomal proteins which, on the basis of sequence similarities [PMID: 531984, PMID: 8119397], groups:

  • Eubacterial S2.
  • Algal and plant chloroplast S2.
  • Cyanelle S2.
  • Archaebacterial S2.
  • Higher eukaryotes P40 (previously thought to be a laminin receptor).
  • Yeast NAB1.
  • Plant mitochondrial S2.
  • Yeast mitochondrial MRP4.
