    Phenotypes of a mutant

  • essential [Pubmed|12682299]
  • depletion confers a slow growth phenotype, and induces an abnormality of the ''in vivo'' ribosome profile, with an increased level of 45S precursors and a decreased level of 70S ribosomes [Pubmed|24335279,23700310]
  • premature 45S particles accumulated in RbgA-depleted cells lack several proteins, including [gene|C5CAED1256F082E722EBA0A72647AA043B5681DB|L16]]], [gene|4626C659D6F1A81CCC94030F1CBAF7FEC3DE19CA|L27]]], [gene|A58851E0B5C4DE4D6F3C16FF8C009001E393C3B8|L28]]], [gene|D73FC9CAD929919050837824B4794F9FC9E83052|L33]]], [gene|7F22743ED669DBCD4089EA2F86B8FFD924F8C2B9|L35]]] and [gene|F69B475C014087C6DEBE2F50F91862A623D21D1E|L36]]] [Pubmed|24335279,23700310]
  • The protein

    Catalyzed reaction/ biological activity

  • proper positioning of [gene|20485A785D3AF82889F2018D3EA5B5FA33E64E95|L6]]] in the large subunit of the [SW|ribosome] prior to incorporation of [gene|C5CAED1256F082E722EBA0A72647AA043B5681DB|L16]]] [Pubmed|25330043]
  • Binds and hydrolyzes GTP and readily exchanges GDP for GTP
  • Protein family

  • MTG1 subfamily (according to Swiss-Prot) Era/Obg family
  • Paralogous protein(s)

  • [protein|66A6EC4F6CB91EE741BB9D7646913FF3EE602BD7|ThdF], [protein|84E7D672DB40B114DC4D96A4D8834958B47401A7|Obg], [protein|959C0ED7B9DA50F0EADCF1565405B878D36DA206|YqeH], [protein|9F6B78C1932FB56F7F71430DB16BC862A312407B|YnbA], [protein|B2270316642C66BC2DA86EBDCD1BF6A33CC6A1DC|YphC], [protein|C0F5FAD6DF89DA9E0FFC8F888D7CED6AA42D9C73|YyaF], [protein|CB68B3393CA7862C45C624AF7B1ADD188243A01F|Era], [protein|DF1A043F3D9817D9479B8C707F4ACEEF2BF2862C|YsxC]
  • [SW|Domains]

  • RNA-binding domain at the C-terminus [Pubmed|23325847]
  • Effectors of protein activity

  • GTPase activity requires binding of [gene|C5CAED1256F082E722EBA0A72647AA043B5681DB|L16]]] to the 50S subunit of the [SW|ribosome] [Pubmed|24335279]
