Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have RNA binding activity and aspartate-tRNA ligase activity. Predicted to be involved in aspartyl-tRNA aminoacylation. Localizes to the aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase multienzyme complex; cytoplasm; and synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human DARS1 (aspartyl-tRNA synthetase 1).
