Mitsui K, et al. (1987) Characterization of a novel acidic protein of 38 kDa, A0, in yeast ribosomes which immunologically cross-reacts with the 13 kDa acidic ribosomal proteins, A1/A2. J Biochem 102(6):1565-70
Abstract: A new ribosomal protein of 38 kDa, named A0, was detected in yeast ribosomes on immunoblotting. The antibody used here was that against A1/A2, 13 kDa acidic ribosomal proteins which cross-reacted with A0. Although A0 and A1/A2 share common antigenic determinants, they differ in the following biochemical properties. While A1/A2 could be extracted from ribosomes with ethanol and ammonium sulfate, A0 could not. A0 gave two protein spots in a less acidic region than for A1/A2 on two-dimensional gel electrophoresis. The heterogeneity observed for A0 was ascribable to phosphorylation because one spot disappeared after treatment of the ribosomes with phosphatase. The syntheses of A0 and A1/A2 are directed by different mRNA species, as judged with a cell-free translation system, ruling out the possibility that A0 is a precursor of A1/A2. Although a mammalian ribosomal protein equivalent to A0 has been shown to be associated with 13 kDa acidic proteins in the cytoplasm, essentially no A0 was detected on immunoblotting in the yeast cytosol, while a small but detectable amount of A1/A2 was present. The possibility that A0 is a eukaryotic equivalent of L10 of Escherichia coli is discussed.
