Summaries for DARS Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DARS Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of a multienzyme complex that functions in mediating the attachment of amino acids to their cognate tRNAs. The encoded protein ligates L-aspartate to tRNA(Asp). Mutations in this gene have been found in patients showing hypomyelination with brainstem and spinal cord involvement and leg spasticity. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2014]

GeneCards Summary for DARS Gene

DARS (Aspartyl-TRNA Synthetase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DARS include Hypomyelination With Brainstem And Spinal Cord Involvement And Leg Spasticity and Spasticity. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Alanine and aspartate metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and nucleotide binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DARS Gene

  • Catalyzes the specific attachment of an amino acid to its cognate tRNA in a 2 step reaction: the amino acid (AA) is first activated by ATP to form AA-AMP and then transferred to the acceptor end of the tRNA.
