Description

The seryl-tRNA synthetase (SerRS) is a homodimeric enzyme that belong to class II tRNA synthetases. SerRS catalyses the aminoacylation reaction that charges serine onto its cognate tRNA for protein synthesis. Each monomer is comprised of two domains: an N-terminal tRNA-binding domain and a catalytic domain composed of seven-stranded anti-parallel beta-sheet[PMID: 24095058].

This entry represents the N-terminal domain of Serine-tRNA synthetase, which consists of two helices in a long alpha-hairpin. Serine-tRNA synthetase (EC:6.1.1.11) exists as monomer and belongs to class IIa aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase [PMID: 7540217].
