Ribonuclease P/MRP protein subunit (IPR002759)

Short name: RNase_P/MRP_subunit

Family relationships


This family contains proteins found in some eukaryotes and archaebacteria that are related to yeast ribonuclease P. This enzyme is essential for tRNA processing generating 5'-termini of mature tRNA molecules [PMID: 7731988]. tRNA processing enzyme ribonuclease P (RNase P) consists of an RNA molecule associated with at least eight protein subunits, hPop1, Rpp14, Rpp20, Rpp25, Rpp29, Rpp30, Rpp38, and Rpp40 [PMID: 10024167].
