Previous GeneCards Identifiers for TARS Gene
Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases catalyze the aminoacylation of tRNA by their cognate amino acid. Because of their central role in linking amino acids with nucleotide triplets contained in tRNAs, aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases are thought to be among the first proteins that appeared in evolution. Threonyl-tRNA synthetase belongs to the class-II aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase family [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for TARS Gene
TARS (Threonyl-TRNA Synthetase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TARS include myositis and dermatomyositis. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and tRNA Aminoacylation. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and aminoacyl-tRNA ligase activity. An important paralog of this gene is TARS2.
