Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)
Description

Ribosomal 60S subunit protein L8B; required for processing of 27SA3 pre-rRNA to 27SB pre-rRNA during assembly of large ribosomal subunit; depletion leads to a turnover of pre-rRNA; L8 binds to Domain I of 25S and 5.8 S rRNAs; mutation results in decreased amounts of free 60S subunits; homologous to mammalian ribosomal protein L7A, no bacterial homolog; RPL8B has a paralog, RPL8A, that arose from the whole genome duplication [Source:SGD;Acc:S000003968]

Synonyms

KRB1, L4B, L8B, rp6, SCL41, YL5

Location

Chromosome XII: 47,859-48,629 reverse strand.

R64-1-1:BK006945.2
