Gene information for HARS2 (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID23438
Official gene symbolHARS2
Full namehistidyl-tRNA synthetase 2, mitochondrial (putative)
Gene summaryAminoacyl-tRNA synthetases are a class of enzymes that charge tRNAs with their cognate amino acids. The protein encoded by this gene is an enzyme belonging to the class II family of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases. Functioning in the synthesis of histidyl-transfer RNA, the enzyme plays an accessory role in the regulation of protein biosynthesis. The gene is located in a head-to-head orientation with HARS on chromosome five, where the homologous genes share a bidirectional promoter. [provided by RefSeq]
