Mammalian mitochondrial ribosomal proteins are encoded by nuclear genes and help in protein synthesis within the mitochondrion. Mitochondrial ribosomes (mitoribosomes) consist of a small 28S subunit and a large 39S subunit. They have an estimated 75% protein to rRNA composition compared to prokaryotic ribosomes where this ratio is reversed. Another difference between mammalian mitoribosomes and prokaryotic ribosomes is that the latter contain a 5S rRNA. Among different species the proteins comprising the mitoribosome differ greatly in sequence and sometimes in biochemical properties which prevents easy recognition by sequence homology. This gene encodes a 39S subunit protein. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
