Interactioni

Subunit structurei

Part of the 50s ribosomal subunit. Contacts protein L23 (PubMed:2665813), trigger factor (PubMed:12226666) and protein nascent chains (PubMed:12756233). Might also contact SecE and probably does contact SecG when the SecYEG translocation complex is docked with the ribosome.5 Publications

Similar proteinsi

Links to similar proteins from the UniProt Reference Clusters (UniRef) at 100%, 90% and 50% sequence identity:
100%UniRef100 combines identical sequences and sub-fragments with 11 or more residues from any organism into Uniref entry.
90%UniRef90 is built by clustering UniRef100 sequences that have at least 90% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence (a.k.a seed sequence).
50%UniRef50 is built by clustering UniRef90 seed sequences that have at least 50% sequence identity to, and 80% overlap with, the longest sequence in the cluster.
