Previous GeneCards Identifiers for POP4 Gene
This gene encodes one of the protein subunits of the small nucleolar ribonucleoprotein complexes: the endoribonuclease for mitochondrial RNA processing complex and the ribonuclease P complex. The encoded protein is localized to the nucleus and associates directly with the RNA component of these complexes. This protein is involved in processing of precursor RNAs. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]
GeneCards Summary for POP4 Gene
POP4 (POP4 Homolog, Ribonuclease P/MRP Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and tRNA processing. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and ribonuclease P activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for POP4 Gene
Part of ribonuclease P, a protein complex that generates mature tRNA molecules by cleaving their 5-ends. May function with RPP38 to coordinate the nucleolar targeting and/or assembly of RNase P.
