Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits scaffold protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular protein metabolic process; positive regulation of cytokine production; and positive regulation of nitrogen compound metabolic process. Localizes to the aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase multienzyme complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease recessive intermediate B and autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 89. Orthologous to human KARS (lysyl-tRNA synthetase).
