Gene: Mars2 (methionyl-tRNA synthetase 2, mitochondrial) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mars2
Name: methionyl-tRNA synthetase 2, mitochondrial
Description: Predicted to have methionine-tRNA ligase activity. Predicted to be involved in methionyl-tRNA aminoacylation. Predicted to localize to the mitochondrial matrix. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency and spastic ataxia 3. Orthologous to human MARS2 (methionyl-tRNA synthetase 2, mitochondrial); PARTICIPATES IN aminoacyl-tRNA biosynthetic pathway; selenoamino acid metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene; 2,4-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: LOC316403; methionine--tRNA ligase, mitochondrial; methionine-tRNA synthetase 2 (mitochondrial); methionyl-tRNA synthetase, mitochondrial; RGD1311527; similar to hypothetical protein BC009115
