Functional Families

Overview of the Structural Clusters (SC) and Functional Families within this CATH Superfamily. Clusters with a representative structure are represented by a filled circle.

Superfamily: Ribosome-recycling factor

The ribosome recycling factor (RRF, or ribosome release factor) dissociates the ribosome from the mRNA after termination of translation, and is essential bacterial growth PMID:8183897. Thus ribosomes are "recycled" and ready for another round of protein synthesis.

This superfamily entry represents the domain found in ribosome recycling factors
