We have identified C15orf4, a novel human gene showing homology to the yeast mitochondrial ribosomal protein YmL30. C15orf4 encodes a transcript of 1,006 nt with an ORF of 279 amino acids and a predicted protein size of 31.7 kDa. Expression of C15orf4 is enriched in testis. C15orf4 was positioned to chromosome 15q24 by radiation hybrid mapping. We have identified the C15orf4 mouse orthologue as well as homologues in other species.
