Subunit of: glycyl-tRNA synthetase
Subunit composition of
glycyl-tRNA synthetase = [GlyS]2[GlyQ]2
glycyl-tRNA synthetase, β subunit = GlyS (summary available)
glycyl-tRNA synthetase, α subunit = GlyQ
Glycyl-tRNA synthetase (GlyRS) is a member of the family of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, which interpret the genetic code by covalently linking amino acids to their specific tRNA molecules. The reaction is driven by ATP hydrolysis. GlyRS belongs to the Class II aminoacyl tRNA synthetases, which share three regions of homology [Eriani90, Cusack91].
GlyRS is a tetramer consisting of two α and two β subunits. Both subunits are required for catalytic activity [Ostrem70, McDonald80]. An enzyme in which the α and β subunits are fused into a single polypeptide chain is catalytically active [Toth86].
Specificity determinants within tRNAGly that are important for recognition by GlyRS have been identified [Roberts75, McClain91a, Hipps95, Nameki97]. The tRNA binding site is located in the β subunit of GlyRS [Nagel84].
