MARS1 methionyl-tRNA synthetase 1

Gene ID: 4141, updated on 1-Mar-2024
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: MRS; ILLD; MARS; TTD9; CMT2U; ILFS2; METRS; MTRNS; SPG70

Summary

This gene encodes a member of the class I family of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases. These enzymes play a critical role in protein biosynthesis by charging tRNAs with their cognate amino acids. The encoded protein is a component of the multi-tRNA synthetase complex and catalyzes the ligation of methionine to tRNA molecules. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2011]
