The name of this superfamily has been modified since the most recent official CATH+ release (v4_2_0). At the point of the last release, this superfamily was named:"
S7 is a primary RNA-binding ribosomal protein which recognises and binds a defined region of 16S RNA in the absence of other ribosomal proteins. Additionally, it has a key-role in initiating the assembly of the 30S ribosomal subunit. It is required for proper folding of a large 3' domain of 16S ribosomal RNA. S7 controls the synthesis of ribosomal proteins by a feedback mechanism at the level of translation. Also, S7 regulates its own synthesis by binding to its own mRNA. This ability of S7 to bind both messenger and ribosomal RNAs makes determination of its mode of RNA recognition particularly interesting.
