MRPL38 (Q96DV4) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis

Protein


MRPL38, 39S ribosomal protein L38, mitochondrial
UniProt Q96DV4

Also Known as RM38_HUMAN, MRPL38

Component of the mitochondrial large ribosomal subunit (mt-LSU) (PubMed:28892042, PubMed:25838379, PubMed:25278503). Mature mammalian 55S mitochondrial ribosomes consist of a small (28S) and a large (39S) subunit. The 28S small subunit contains a 12S ribosomal RNA (12S mt-rRNA) and 30 different proteins. The 39S large subunit contains a 16S rRNA (16S mt-rRNA), a copy of mitochondrial valine transfer RNA (mt-tRNA(Val)), which plays an integral structural role, and 52 different proteins. mL38 is located at the central protuberance.
