Summaries for RPL26 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RPL26 Gene

  • Ribosomes, the organelles that catalyze protein synthesis, consist of a small 40S subunit and a large 60S subunit. Together these subunits are composed of 4 RNA species and approximately 80 structurally distinct proteins. This gene encodes a ribosomal protein that is a component of the 60S subunit. The protein belongs to the L24P family of ribosomal proteins. It is located in the cytoplasm. As is typical for genes encoding ribosomal proteins, there are multiple processed pseudogenes of this gene dispersed through the genome. Mutations in this gene result in Diamond-Blackfan anemia. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2015]

GeneCards Summary for RPL26 Gene

RPL26 (Ribosomal Protein L26) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RPL26 include Diamond-Blackfan Anemia 11 and Diamond-Blackfan Anemia. Among its related pathways are Viral mRNA Translation and rRNA processing in the nucleus and cytosol. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and structural constituent of ribosome. An important paralog of this gene is RPL26L1.
