Protein Information
Synonyms KIAA0070
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 (PubMed:9278442, PubMed:18029264, PubMed:18272479). When secreted, acts as a signaling molecule that induces immune response through the activation of monocyte/macrophages (PubMed:15851690). Catalyzes the synthesis of the signaling molecule diadenosine tetraphosphate (Ap4A), and thereby mediates disruption of the complex between HINT1 and MITF and the concomitant activation of MITF transcriptional activity (PubMed:5338216, PubMed:14975237, PubMed:19524539, PubMed:23159739).
Cellular Location Isoform Cytoplasmic: Cytoplasm, cytosol Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Secreted. Note=Secretion is induced by TNF- alpha (PubMed:15851690). Cytosolic in quiescent mast cells Translocates into the nucleus in response to mast cell activation by immunoglobulin E (PubMed:23159739)

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.
