RPL36AL (Ribosomal Protein L36a Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Viral mRNA Translation and Metabolism. RPL36AL encodes a ribosomal protein that is a component of the 60S subunit. The protein, which shares sequence similarity with yeast ribosomal protein L44, belongs to the L44E (L36AE) family of ribosomal proteins. RPL36AL and the human gene officially named ribosomal protein L36a (RPL36A) encode nearly identical proteins; however, they are distinct genes. Although the name of RPL36AL has been referred to as ribosomal protein L36a (RPL36A), its official name is ribosomal protein L36a-like (RPL36AL). As is typical for genes encoding ribosomal proteins, there are multiple processed pseudogenes of RPL36AL dispersed through the genome.
