POP1 Component of ribonuclease P, a protein complex that generates mature tRNA molecules by cleaving their 5'-ends. Also a component of RNase MRP. Defects in POP1 may be the cause of a severe skeletal dysplasia reminiscent of anauxetic dysplasia. Affected individuals show severe growth retardation of prenatal onset, a bone dysplasia affecting the epiphyses and metaphyses of the long bones particularly in the lower limbs, and abnormalities of the spine including irregularly shaped vertebral bodies and marked cervical spine instability.
