Family relationships



Ribonuclease P (RNase P) generates mature tRNA molecules by cleaving their 5' ends. Rpm2 is a protein subunit of the yeast mitochondrial RNase P. It has the ability to act as a transcriptional activator in the nucleus, where it plays a role in defining the steady-state levels of mRNAs for some nucleus-encoded mitochondrial components. Rpm2p is also involved in maturation of Rpm1 and in translation of mitochondrial mRNAs [PMID: 16024791, PMID: 8668158, PMID: 11404323].
