Previous GeneCards Identifiers for SARS Gene
This gene belongs to the class II amino-acyl tRNA family. The encoded enzyme catalyzes the transfer of L-serine to tRNA (Ser) and is related to bacterial and yeast counterparts. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described but the biological validity of all variants is unknown. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010]
GeneCards Summary for SARS Gene
SARS (Seryl-TRNA Synthetase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SARS include Epidemic Typhus. Among its related pathways are Selenium Metabolism and Selenoproteins and Viral mRNA Translation. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and aminoacyl-tRNA ligase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SARS Gene
Catalyzes the attachment of serine to tRNA(Ser). Is also probably able to aminoacylate tRNA(Sec) with serine, to form the misacylated tRNA L-seryl-tRNA(Sec), which will be further converted into selenocysteinyl-tRNA(Sec).
