WRAP53 [ENSP00000324203]

WD40 repeat-containing protein antisense to TP53 gene; Essential component of the telomerase holoenzyme complex, a ribonucleoprotein complex essential for the replication of chromosome termini that elongates telomeres in most eukaryotes. In the telomerase holoenzyme complex, it controls telomerase localization to Cajal body. Required for delivery of TERC to telomeres during S phase and for telomerase activity. Binds small Cajal body RNAs (scaRNAs). The mRNA encoding this protein plays a critical role in the regulation of p53 expression at the post- transcriptional level; it is involved both in maintaining basal p53 mRNA levels and in p53 induction upon DNA damage; WD repeat domain containing
