YARS2 gene

tyrosyl-tRNA synthetase 2

The information on this page was automatically extracted from online scientific databases.

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a mitochondrial protein that catalyzes the attachment of tyrosine to tRNA(Tyr). Mutations in this gene are associated with myopathy with lactic acidosis and sideroblastic anemia type 2 (MLASA2). [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2011]

From UniProt:

Catalyzes the attachment of tyrosine to tRNA(Tyr) in a two-step reaction: tyrosine is first activated by ATP to form Tyr-AMP and then transferred to the acceptor end of tRNA(Tyr).

From NCBI Gene:

  • Myopathy, lactic acidosis, and sideroblastic anemia 2

From UniProt:

Myopathy with lactic acidosis and sideroblastic anemia 2 (MLASA2): A rare oxidative phosphorylation disorder specific to skeletal muscle and bone marrow. Affected individuals manifest sideroblastic anemia, progressive lethargy, muscle weakness, and exercise intolerance associated with persistent lactic acidemia. [MIM:613561]
