This entry represents the protein component 1 of ribonuclease P. RNase P is a protein complex that functions in the processing of pre-tRNA, generating mature tRNA molecules by cleaving their 5'-ends. It consists of a RNA moiety and at least 4 protein subunits. Unlike most other natural ribozymes, it recognises and cleaves its substrate in trans [PMID: 16650980].
