Gene Summary
Ribosomal protein L5 (RpL5) encodes a component of the large subunit of cytoplasmic ribosomes, which translate mRNAs encoded by the nuclear genome. RpL5 is haploinsufficient - heterozygous mutants display the 'Minute' phenotype, characterized by a slower developmental rate and small adult bristles.

Gene Snapshot

Gene Group (FlyBase)
CYTOPLASMIC LARGE RIBOSOMAL PROTEINS -
Cytoplasmic ribosomes are found on the endoplasmic reticulum and in the cytoplasm. They translate all mRNAs produced from nuclear genes and perform the majority of cellular protein synthesis. Ribosomes are formed by two ribonucleoprotein subunits, large and small. The principle function of the large subunit is to bind tRNA during the synthesis of polypeptides. (Adapted from FBrf0205398).
Protein Function (UniProtKB)
Component of the ribosome, a large ribonucleoprotein complex responsible for the synthesis of proteins in the cell. The small ribosomal subunit (SSU) binds messenger RNAs (mRNAs) and translates the encoded message by selecting cognate aminoacyl-transfer RNA (tRNA) molecules. The large subunit (LSU) contains the ribosomal catalytic site termed the peptidyl transferase center (PTC), which catalyzes the formation of peptide bonds, thereby polymerizing the amino acids delivered by tRNAs into a polypeptide chain. The nascent polypeptides leave the ribosome through a tunnel in the LSU and interact with protein factors that function in enzymatic processing, targeting, and the membrane insertion of nascent chains at the exit of the ribosomal tunnel.

    Other Comments

    Minute gene.

    Deletions removing RpL5 but no other cytoplasmic ribosomal protein-encoding genes show Minute phenotypes.

    Molecularly-defined mutations in RpL5 result in Minute phenotypes.

    Identification: as a complementation group whose members dominantly modify the small wing phenotype caused by expression of Pi3K92ED954A.Scer\UAS.T:Hsap\MYC under the control of Scer\GAL4Bx-MS1096. 2 alleles of RpL5 have been recovered.

    Identified as a potential component of the hh signalling pathway in a genome-wide RNAi screen. dsRNA made from templates generated with primers directed affects the extent of expression of a hh signaling reporter construct in Clone 8 cells.
