tRNA-binding domain (IPR002547)

Short name: tRNA-bd_dom

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships


This domain is found in prokaryotic methionyl-tRNA synthetases, prokaryotic phenylalanyl tRNA synthetases, the yeast GU4 nucleic-binding protein (G4p1 or p42, ARC1) [PMID: 8895587], human tyrosyl-tRNA synthetase [PMID: 9162081], endothelial-monocyte activating polypeptide II and export-related chaperon CsaA [PMID: 11157762]. G4p1 binds specifically to tRNA form a complex with methionyl-tRNA synthetases [PMID: 8895587]. In human tyrosyl-tRNA synthetase, this domain may direct tRNA to the active site of the enzyme [PMID: 8895587]. This domain may perform a common function in tRNA aminoacylation [PMID: 9162081].
