ribosomal protein l7/l12

| posted 04 Jun, 2023 21:35
I am looking at Stop-8213 in Enygma, a BE cluster phage. HHPred finds significant homology to L7/L12 subunit proteins of the 50S Ribosome in two bacterial species. There is however no detected sequence homology to back this up. Homology occurs across a significant chunk of the Pham, but not its entirety.


I suspect that we need more evidence, but thought it worthwhile enough to post.

I agree it is not enough yet. but good to make the post.
