Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have aspartate-tRNA ligase activity; aspartate-tRNA(Asn) ligase activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Predicted to be involved in mitochondrial asparaginyl-tRNA aminoacylation. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; integumental system; midbrain; and telencephalon. Orthologous to human DARS2 (aspartyl-tRNA synthetase 2, mitochondrial).
