Protein Information
Name AIMP2
Synonyms JTV1
Function Required for assembly and stability of the aminoacyl- tRNA synthase complex. Mediates ubiquitination and degradation of FUBP1, a transcriptional activator of MYC, leading to MYC down- regulation which is required for aveolar type II cell differentiation. Blocks MDM2-mediated ubiquitination and degradation of p53/TP53. Functions as a proapoptotic factor.
Cellular Location Cytoplasm, cytosol. Nucleus. Note=Following DNA damage, dissociates from the aminoacyl-tRNA synthase complex and translocates from the cytoplasm to the nucleus.

AIMP2 was initially identified as a part of an aminoacyl-tRNA synthesase complex (1). It was later discovered to be a cofactor and substrate of Parkin, a Ring-type E3 ubiquitin ligase that is important for the survival of dopamine neurons in Parkinson’s disease; accumulation of AIMP2 in these cells lead to catecholaminergic cell death (2). AIMP2 can also bind to TRAF2, a key player in the TNF-alpha signaling pathway, causing the ubiquitination of TRAF2 by cIAP1, leading to TNF-alpha-dependent apoptosis (3). Finally, AIMP2 has been suggested to function as a tumor suppressor (4).
