Laminin-binding protein/p40 (LBP/p40) precursor appears to be involved in two seemingly unrelated activities-cell adhesion and ribosomal biogenesis. Analysis of primary structure revealed a two-domain organization of the LBP/p40. The N-terminal portion of LBP is similar to the S2 family of prokaryotic ribosomal proteins, while the C-terminus is unique for Metazoa and is involved in extraribosomal functions. To gain insight into putative ribosomal functions of LBP we performed comparative… CONTINUE READING
