From NCBI Gene:

Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases catalyze the aminoacylation of tRNA by their cognate amino acid. Because of their central role in linking amino acids with nucleotide triplets contained in tRNAs, aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases are thought to be among the first proteins that appeared in evolution. Threonyl-tRNA synthetase belongs to the class-II aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase family [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

From UniProt:

Catalyzes the attachment of threonine to tRNA(Thr) in a two-step reaction: threonine is first activated by ATP to form Thr-AMP and then transferred to the acceptor end of tRNA(Thr) (PubMed:25824639, PubMed:31374204). Also edits incorrectly charged tRNA(Thr) via its editing domain, at the post-transfer stage (By similarity).

  • TRICHOTHIODYSTROPHY 7, NONPHOTOSENSITIVE

From UniProt:

Trichothiodystrophy 7, non-photosensitive (TTD7): A form of trichothiodystrophy, a disease characterized by sulfur-deficient brittle hair and multisystem variable abnormalities. The spectrum of clinical features varies from mild disease with only hair involvement to severe disease with cutaneous, neurologic and profound developmental defects. Ichthyosis, intellectual and developmental disabilities, decreased fertility, abnormal characteristics at birth, ocular abnormalities, short stature, and infections are common manifestations. There are both photosensitive and non-photosensitive forms of the disorder. TTD7 patients do not manifest cutaneous photosensitivity. They have cysteine- and threonine-deficient hair with alternating light and dark 'tiger-tail' banding pattern observed under polarization microscopy. Inheritance pattern is autosomal recessive.
