Gene: Vars (valyl-tRNA synthetase) Mus musculus
Symbol: Vars
Name: valyl-tRNA synthetase
CRRD ID: 735745
Description: Predicted to have valine-tRNA ligase activity. Predicted to be involved in valyl-tRNA aminoacylation. Localizes to mitochondrion. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; cranium; genitourinary system; midbrain; and telencephalon. Orthologous to human VARS1 (valyl-tRNA synthetase 1); PARTICIPATES IN valine, leucine and isoleucine biosynthetic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Bat; Bat-; Bat6; D17H6S56; D17H6S56E; G7; G7a; V; valine--tRNA ligase; valRS; Vars1; Vars2
