Gene: CARS2 (cysteinyl-tRNA synthetase 2, mitochondrial) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CARS2
Name: cysteinyl-tRNA synthetase 2, mitochondrial
Description: Predicted to have ATP binding activity and cysteine-tRNA ligase activity. Predicted to be involved in cysteinyl-tRNA aminoacylation. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm. Implicated in combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
