Summaries for POP1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for POP1 Gene

  • This gene encodes the protein subunit of two different small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein complexes: the endoribonuclease for mitochondrial RNA processing complex and the ribonuclease P complex. The encoded protein is a ribonuclease that localizes to the nucleus and functions in pre-RNA processing. This protein is also an autoantigen in patients suffering from connective tissue diseases. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]

GeneCards Summary for POP1 Gene

POP1 (POP1 Homolog, Ribonuclease P/MRP Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with POP1 include Anauxetic Dysplasia 2 and Anauxetic Dysplasia 1. Among its related pathways are Ribosome biogenesis in eukaryotes and Gene Expression. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and ribonuclease MRP activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for POP1 Gene
