MRPS24 (Mitochondrial Ribosomal Protein S24) is a Protein Coding gene. The MRPS24 gene, located on 7p13, is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, cow, mouse, rat, zebrafish, fruit fly, mosquito, C.elegans, and frog. MRPS24 belongs to the universal ribosomal protein uS3 family. This gene encodes a 28S subunit protein. A pseudogene corresponding to this gene is found on chromosome 11. Read-through transcription exists between this gene and the upstream upregulation of cell proliferation (URGCP) gene. MRPS24 is widely expressed in the kidney, adrenal, and other tissues. Among its related pathways are Organelle biogenesis and maintenance and Mitochondrial translation. 195 organisms have orthologs with the human gene MRPS24.
