MASU1_HUMAN Protein

Name Mitochondrial assembly of ribosomal large subunit protein 1
Description May function as a ribosomal silencing factor. Addition to isolated mitochondrial ribosomal subunits partially inhibits translation. Interacts with mitochondrial ribosomal protein L14 (MRPL14), probably blocking formation of intersubunit bridge B8, preventing association of the 28S and 39S ribosomal subunits and the formation of functional ribosomes, thus repressing translation. May also participate in the assembly and/or regulation of the stability of the large subunit of the mitochondrial ribosome.
