Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have RNA binding activity; glutamine-tRNA ligase activity; and protein kinase binding activity. Predicted to be involved in glutaminyl-tRNA aminoacylation and negative regulation of apoptotic process. Localizes to the aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase multienzyme complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human QARS1 (glutaminyl-tRNA synthetase 1).
