Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)

Aspartyl-tRNA synthetase, primarily cytoplasmic; homodimeric enzyme that catalyzes the specific aspartylation of tRNA(Asp); class II aminoacyl tRNA synthetase; binding to its own mRNA may confer autoregulation; shares five highly conserved amino acids with human that when mutated cause leukoencephalopathy characterized by hypomyelination with brain stem and spinal cord involvement and leg spasticity (HBSL) [Source:SGD;Acc:S000003941]

Gene Synonyms

aspartyl-tRNA synthetase, AspRS


Chromosome XII: 109,902-111,575 reverse strand.
