External Ids for RPS11 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 member of the S17P family of ribosomal proteins that is a component of the 40S subunit. This gene is co-transcribed with the small nucleolar RNA gene U35B, which is located in the third intron. As is typical for genes encoding ribosomal proteins, there are multiple processed pseudogenes of this gene dispersed throughout the genome. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]
GeneCards Summary for RPS11 Gene
RPS11 (Ribosomal Protein S11) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Disease and Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein. GO annotations related to this gene include structural constituent of ribosome and rRNA binding.
