Can the D-brane and p-brane wrapped as compactification of the dimensions? String theories are consistent in 26 (bosonic string theory), 10 (superstring theories) and 11 (M-theory) dimensions. To get our world (4D) one needs to compactify the extra-dimensions. In general $D$ branes are extended $p+1$ dimensional objects with $p$ spatial and one time ...
The answer is yes, branes (both $D$ and $p$) can be wrapped around compactified dimensions. There is little difference between the two types of branes with regard to compactification.
