Summaries for RPS27 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RPS27 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 four RNA species and approximately 80 structurally distinct proteins. This gene encodes a member of the S27e family of ribosomal proteins and component of the 40S subunit. The encoded protein contains a C4-type zinc finger domain that can bind to zinc and may bind to nucleic acid. Studies in rat indicate that ribosomal protein S27 is located near ribosomal protein S18 in the 40S subunit and is covalently linked to translation initiation factor eIF3. Mutations in this gene have been identified in numerous melanoma patients and in at least one patient with Diamond-Blackfan anemia (DBA). Elevated expression of this gene has been observed in various human cancers. As is typical for genes encoding ribosomal proteins, there are multiple processed pseudogenes of this gene dispersed through the genome. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2017]

GeneCards Summary for RPS27 Gene

RPS27 (Ribosomal Protein S27) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RPS27 include Diamond-Blackfan Anemia 17 and Diamond-Blackfan Anemia. 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. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include structural constituent of ribosome. An important paralog of this gene is RPS27L.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RPS27 Gene

  • Component of the small ribosomal subunit (PubMed:8706699). Required for proper rRNA processing and maturation of 18S rRNAs (PubMed:25424902).
