|Other Names||Lysine--tRNA ligase, Lysyl-tRNA synthetase, LysRS, KARS, KIAA0070|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes the specific attachment of an amino acid to its cognate tRNA in a 2 step reaction: the amino acid (AA) is first activated by ATP to form AA-AMP and then transferred to the acceptor end of the tRNA. When secreted, acts as a signaling molecule that induces immune response through the activation of monocyte/macrophages. Catalyzes the synthesis of diadenosine oligophosphate (Ap4A), a signaling molecule involved in the activation of MITF transcriptional activity. Interacts with HIV-1 virus GAG protein, facilitating the selective packaging of tRNA(3)(Lys), the primer for reverse transcription initiation.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform Cytoplasmic: Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Secreted Note=Secretion is induced by TNF-alpha|

Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases are a class of enzymes thatcharge tRNAs with their cognate amino acids. Lysyl-tRNA synthetaseis a homodimer localized to the cytoplasm which belongs to theclass II family of tRNA synthetases. It has been shown to be atarget of autoantibodies in the human autoimmune diseases,polymyositis or dermatomyositis. Alternatively spliced transcriptvariants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
