  • Function

    Required for rRNA maturation and formation of the 60S ribosomal subunits. This protein binds 5S RNA.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in RPL5 are the cause of Diamond-Blackfan anemia type 6 (DBA6) [MIM:612561]. DBA6 is a form of Diamond-Blackfan anemia, a congenital non-regenerative hypoplastic anemia that usually presents early in infancy. Diamond-Blackfan anemia is characterized by a moderate to severe macrocytic anemia, erythroblastopenia, and an increased risk of malignancy. 30 to 40% of Diamond-Blackfan anemia patients present with short stature and congenital anomalies, the most frequent being craniofacial (Pierre-Robin syndrome and cleft palate), thumb and urogenital anomalies.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the ribosomal protein L18P family.
  • Cellular localization
