Most genes encoding ribosomal proteins are essential and many ribosomal proteins belong to the small set of universally conserved proteins.

Structure of the ribosome

Proteins of the large subunit

Proteins of the small subunit

Proteins that are part of the ribosome only under specific conditions

  • Ctc: present in the large subunit under stress conditions
  • RpmGC: replaces L33 under conditions of zinc limitation
  • YbxF: L7 family, associated to the ribosome during logarithmic growth
  • YhzA: replaces L31 under conditions of zinc limitation
  • YtiA: replaces S14 under conditions of zinc limitation
