Gene: RPL21 (ribosomal protein L21) Homo sapiens
Symbol: RPL21
Name: ribosomal protein L21
Description: Exhibits RNA binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including SRP-dependent cotranslational protein targeting to membrane; nuclear-transcribed mRNA catabolic process, nonsense-mediated decay; and translational initiation. Localizes to the cytosolic large ribosomal subunit and membrane. Implicated in hypotrichosis 12.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: 60S ribosomal protein L21; DKFZp686C06101; FLJ27458; HYPT12; L21; large ribosomal subunit protein eL21; MGC104274; MGC104275; MGC71252
