Nop1p / Fibrillarin was originally identified as a nucleolar protein of bakers yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae (accession P15646). The Nop1p protein is essential for yeast viability and is localized in the nucleoli. The human homologue of Nop1p is fibrillarin (accession P22087) a component of the nucleolar small nuclear ribonucleoprotein (snRNP) particle. The human fibrillarin gene is located on chromosome 19 (19q13. 1).
