Isoleucyl-tRNA synthetase

isoleucyl-tRNA synthetase, Isoleucine-tRNA Ligase
Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases catalyze the aminoacylation of tRNA by their cognate amino acid. Because of their central role in linking amino acids with nucleotide triplets contained in tRNAS, aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases are thought to be among the first proteins that appeared in evolution. Isoleucine-tRNA synthetase belongs to the class-I aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase family and has been identified as a target of autoantibodies in the autoimmune disease polymyositis/dermatomyositis. Two alternatively spliced variants have been isolated that represent alternate 5' UTRs. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Mupirocin: biosynthesis, special features and applications of an antibiotic from a gram-negative bacterium.
Thomas et al., Birmingham, United Kingdom. In Appl Microbiol Biotechnol, 2011
Mupirocin inhibits isoleucyl-tRNA synthetase and has been used since 1985 to help prevent infection by methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, particularly within hospitals.
Resistance to and synthesis of the antibiotic mupirocin.
Simpson et al., Birmingham, United Kingdom. In Nat Rev Microbiol, 2010
Low-level resistance to the antibiotic arises by mutation of the mupirocin target, isoleucyl-tRNA synthetase, whereas high-level resistance is due to the presence of an isoleucyl-tRNA synthetase with many similarities to eukaryotic enzymes.
