50S ribosomal protein L4 - P60723 (RL4_ECOLI)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for P60723: 78
One of the primary rRNA binding proteins, this protein initially binds near the 5'-end of the 23S rRNA. It is important during the early stages of 50S assembly. It makes multiple contacts with different domains of the 23S rRNA in the assembled 50S subunit and ribosome. (data source: UniProt  )
Protein L4 is a both a transcriptional repressor and a translational repressor protein; these two functions are independent of each other. It regulates transcription of the S10 operon (to which L4 belongs) by causing premature termination of transcription within the S10 leader; termination absolutely requires the NusA protein. L4 controls the translation of the S10 operon by binding to its mRNA. The regions of L4 that control regulation (residues 131-210) are different from those required for ribosome assembly (residues 89-103). (data source: UniProt  )
Forms part of the polypeptide exit tunnel. (data source: UniProt  )
Can regulate expression from Citrobacter freundii, Haemophilus influenzae, Morganella morganii, Salmonella typhimurium, Serratia marcescens, Vibrio cholerae and Yersinia enterocolitica (but not Pseudomonas aeruginosa) S10 leaders in vitro. (data source: UniProt  )

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in red indicates combined ranges of Homology Models from SBKB   and the Protein Model Portal  
The PDB to UniProt mapping is based on the data provided by the EBI SIFTS project. See also Velankar et al., Nucleic Acids Research 33, D262-265 (2005).
