Short name: RNase_P/MRP_subunit

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

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].
