Homologous Superfamily

Methionyl-tRNA synthetase, Zn-domain (IPR029038)

Short name: MetRS_Zn

Overlapping entries


All methionyl-tRNA synthetases (MetRS) display a highly conserved catalytic core with a Rossmann fold, the two halves of which are linked by a connective peptide (CP) [PMID: 14992601]. In E. coli MetRS, a tightly bound zinc ion was shown to play a role in the folding of the CP region [PMID: 7495798]. This entry represents the CP region.
