Previous Symbols for MRTO4 Gene
This gene encodes a protein sharing a low level of sequence similarity with ribosomal protein P0. While the precise function of the encoded protein is currently unknown, it appears to be involved in mRNA turnover and ribosome assembly. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for MRTO4 Gene
MRTO4 (MRNA Turnover 4 Homolog (S. Cerevisiae)) is a Protein Coding gene.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MRTO4 Gene
Component of the ribosome assembly machinery. Nuclear paralog of the ribosomal protein P0, it binds pre-60S subunits at an early stage of assembly in the nucleolus, and is replaced by P0 in cytoplasmic pre-60S subunits and mature 80S ribosomes.
