Domain

BOP1, N-terminal domain (IPR012953)

Short name: BOP1_N_dom

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain is found in the N-terminal region of BOP1-like WD40 proteins. Bop1 is a nucleolar protein involved in rRNA processing, thereby controlling the cell cycle [PMID: 16362343]. It is required for the maturation of the 25S and 5.8S ribosomal RNAs. It may serve as an essential factor in ribosome formation that coordinates processing of the spacer regions in pre-rRNA.
