Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have phenylalanine-tRNA ligase activity. Predicted to be involved in phenylalanyl-tRNA aminoacylation and protein heterotetramerization. Predicted to localize to the cytosol and phenylalanine-tRNA ligase complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; heart; integumental system; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human FARSA (phenylalanyl-tRNA synthetase subunit alpha).
