Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have tRNA binding activity and tyrosine-tRNA ligase activity. Predicted to be involved in tRNA aminoacylation for protein translation. Predicted to localize to the aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase multienzyme complex; cytosol; and nuclear body. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease dominant intermediate C. Orthologous to human YARS (tyrosyl-tRNA synthetase).
