This nucleolar family of proteins are involved in 60S ribosomal biogenesis. They are specifically involved in the processing beyond the 27S stage of 25S rRNA maturation . This family contains sequences that bear similarity to the glioma tumour suppressor candidate region gene 2 protein (p60) . This protein has been found to interact with herpes simplex type 1 regulatory proteins .
