Gene: FARSA (phenylalanyl-tRNA synthetase subunit alpha) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FARSA
Name: phenylalanyl-tRNA synthetase subunit alpha
Description: Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases are a class of enzymes that charge tRNAs with their cognate amino acids. This gene encodes a product which is similar to the catalytic subunit of prokaryotic and Saccharomyces cerevisiae phenylalanyl-tRNA synthetases (PheRS). This gene product has been shown to be expressed in a tumor-selective and cell cycle stage- and differentiation-dependent manner, the first member of the tRNA synthetase gene family shown to exhibit this type of regulated expression [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
