Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases are a class of enzymes that charge tRNAs with their cognate amino acids. This gene encodes a product which is similar to the catalytic subunit of prokaryotic and Saccharomyces cerevisiae phenylalanyl-tRNA synthetases (PheRS). This gene product has been shown to be expressed in a tumor-selective and cell cycle stage- and differentiation-dependent manner, the first member of the tRNA synthetase gene family shown to exhibit this type of regulated expression [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for FARSA Gene
FARSA (Phenylalanyl-TRNA Synthetase Subunit Alpha) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FARSA include B-Lymphoblastic Leukemia/Lymphoma With Hypodiploidy and B-Lymphoblastic Leukemia/Lymphoma With Hyperdiploidy. Among its related pathways are tRNA Aminoacylation and Gene Expression. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include tRNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is FARS2.
