    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 [protein|C5CAED1256F082E722EBA0A72647AA043B5681DB|L16], [protein|4626C659D6F1A81CCC94030F1CBAF7FEC3DE19CA|L27], [protein|A58851E0B5C4DE4D6F3C16FF8C009001E393C3B8|L28], [protein|D73FC9CAD929919050837824B4794F9FC9E83052|L33], [protein|7F22743ED669DBCD4089EA2F86B8FFD924F8C2B9|L35] and [protein|F69B475C014087C6DEBE2F50F91862A623D21D1E|L36] [Pubmed|24335279,23700310]

  • proper positioning of [protein|20485A785D3AF82889F2018D3EA5B5FA33E64E95|L6] in the large subunit of the [SW|ribosome] prior to incorporation of [protein|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
