Characterization and primary structure of proteins L28, L33 and L34 from Bacillus stearothermophilus ribosomes.


PMID 1742360

Abstract

The complete amino acid sequences of 3 proteins from the 50S subunit of Bacillus stearothermophilus ribosomes were determined by N-terminal sequence analysis and by sequencing of overlapping fragments obtained from enzymatic digestions and chemical cleavages. The proteins BstL28, BstL33 and BstL34, named according to the equivalent proteins in Escherichia coli ribosomes, consist of 60, 49, and 44 amino acid residues and have calculated molecular masses of 6811.0, 5908.6, and 5253.9 Da, respectively. They are highly basic with a content of positively charged residues ranging between 29% for L33 and 45% for L34. The 3 proteins were positioned in the 2-dimensional map of B stearothermophilus 50S ribosomal proteins. The electrophoretic mobilities confirm sizes and net charges deduced from the sequences.
