Superfamily: Ribosomal protein S21

This entry represents the ribosomal protein S21 (S21e) found in the small subunit (40S) of the ribosome. It exhibits a 2-layer alpha/beta sandwich fold with 2 alpha-helices and 2 beta-sheets.

S21 has been characterised in Drosophila (RpS21) and was found to bind to native 40S ribosomal subunits in a salt-labile association. It is absent from polysomes, indicating that it acts as a translation initiation factor rather than as a core ribosomal protein. RpS21 can interact strongly with P40, a ribosomal peripheral protein encoded by the stubarista(sta) gene PMID:10022917.
