Entrez Gene Summary for EPRS Gene

  • Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases are a class of enzymes that charge tRNAs with their cognate amino acids. The protein encoded by this gene is a multifunctional aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase that catalyzes the aminoacylation of glutamic acid and proline tRNA species. Alternative splicing has been observed for this gene, but the full-length nature and biological validity of the variant have not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for EPRS Gene

EPRS (Glutamyl-Prolyl-TRNA Synthetase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EPRS include hemorrhagic cystitis. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Gene Expression. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA stem-loop binding and proline-tRNA ligase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EPRS Gene

  • Catalyzes the attachment of the cognate amino acid to the corresponding tRNA in a two-step reaction: the amino acid is first activated by ATP to form a covalent intermediate with AMP and is then transferred to the acceptor end of the cognate tRNA. Component of the GAIT (gamma interferon-activated inhibitor of translation) complex which mediates interferon-gamma-induced transcript-selective translation inhibition in inflammation processes. Upon interferon-gamma activation and subsequent phosphorylation dissociates from the multisynthetase complex and assembles into the GAIT complex which binds to stem loop-containing GAIT elements in the 3-UTR of diverse inflammatory mRNAs (such as ceruplasmin) and suppresses their translation.

    Size:
    1512 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    170591 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Component of the multisynthetase complex which is comprised of a bifunctional glutamyl-prolyl-tRNA synthetase, the monospecific isoleucyl, leucyl, glutaminyl, methionyl, lysyl, arginyl, and aspartyl-tRNA synthetases as well as three auxiliary proteins, p18, p48 and p43. Interacts with DUS2L. Component of the GAIT complex; in humans the complex assembly seems to be a two-step process in which EPRS first associates with SYNCRIP to form a pre-GAIT complex which is deficient in GAIT element binding.

Post-translational modifications for EPRS Gene

  • Phosphorylated at Ser-886 by CDK5 and at Ser-999 by an unknown kinase in a IFN-gamma-dependent manner in monocytes; these sequential phosphorylations are causing release from the multisynthetase complex, association with the GAIT complex and subsequent involvement in transcript-selective translation inhibition. Phosphorylation at Ser-999 is specifically required for the interaction of GAIT complex-associated RPL13A with eIF4G.
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus
