Summaries for RPS23 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RPS23 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 40S subunit. The protein belongs to the S12P family of ribosomal proteins. It is located in the cytoplasm. The protein shares significant amino acid similarity with S. cerevisiae ribosomal protein S28. As is typical for genes encoding ribosomal proteins, there are multiple processed pseudogenes of this gene dispersed through the genome. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for RPS23 Gene

RPS23 (Ribosomal Protein S23) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RPS23 include Retinitis Pigmentosa 20 and Retinitis Pigmentosa 26. Among its related pathways are Viral mRNA Translation and Activation of the mRNA upon binding of the cap-binding complex and eIFs, and subsequent binding to 43S. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and structural constituent of ribosome.
