The protein encoded by this gene is an arginyl-tRNA synthetase that is found in the mitochondrial matrix. Defects in this gene are a cause of pontocerebellar hypoplasia type 6 (PCH6). [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]
GeneCards Summary for RARS2 Gene
RARS2 (Arginyl-TRNA Synthetase 2, Mitochondrial) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RARS2 include pontocerebellar hypoplasia, type 6 and pontocerebellar hypoplasia type 1. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and tRNA Aminoacylation. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and aminoacyl-tRNA ligase activity. An important paralog of this gene is RARS.
