    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular
  • localized in mitochondrial matrix, in the mitochondrial matrix side of interspace and associated with mitoribosomal proteins
  • basic FUNCTION
  • acting as a putative tumor suppressor gene
  • playing an important role in the regulation of apoptotic signaling with its GTPase/GTP binding domain
  • plays an important role in the small ribosomal constitution, and is also involved in cell viability
  • required for proper assembly of mitochondrial ribosomal subunits and thus important for mitochondrial translation
  • role potential in the formation of functional ribosomal small subunits and might be involved in mitochondrial biogenesis and associated with the mitochondrial ribosome during the assembly, rRNA folding and RNA modification
  • play a crucial role in ribosome assembly
  • mitochondrial protein that associates with the small
  • 28S subunit of the mitoribosome
  • essential function of ERAL1 is as a 12S mt-rRNA chaperone
  • the timely removal of ERAL1 from the small ribosomal subunit is likely essential for the efficient maturation of the mitoribosome and a normal rate of mitochondrial translation
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell cycle, division

    small molecule nucleotide,
  • GTP
  • protein
  • protein associated with TFAM
  • binds to the rRNA component of the small subunit
  • [12S mt (mitochondrial)-rRNA], with ERAL1-binding site to a 33 nucleotide section delineating the 3 prime terminal stem–loop region of 12S mt-rRNA
  • ERAL1 binds to the mitochondrial rRNA component of the ribosomal small subunit and is an important constituent of this subunit. p32, which is involved in mitochondrial translation
