PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
STRUCTURE
motifs/domains
  • two ribosomal S5 domains
  • a N-terminal Arg-Gly repeat as the methylation site
  • a central domain comprising 72 amino acids which is necessary and sufficient to target the chimeric beta-galactosidase to the nucleus
  • mono polymer heteromer
    HOMOLOGY
    interspecies homolog to murine llrep3
    homolog to C.elegans c49h3.11
    Homologene
    FAMILY S5P family
    CATEGORY RNA associated
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     intracellular
    intracellular,cytoplasm,cytosolic,ribosome
    intracellular,nucleus,nucleoplasm
    text in the nucleus, strictly localized in the nucleoplasm and not targeted to the nucleoli
    basic FUNCTION
  • 40S ribosomal protein S2
  • nuclear uptake could be mediated by several import receptors since it binds to importinalpha/beta and transportin
  • CELLULAR PROCESS protein, translation/synthesis
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
