Valyl-tRNA synthetase

valyl-tRNA synthetase, G7a, Vars, ValRS, BAT6, VAS1
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. The protein encoded by this gene belongs to class-I aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase family and is located in the class III region of the major histocompatibility complex.

The genes so far recognised in the HLA can be subdivided into three major classes: 1) the HLA class I (HLA-ABC) and class II genes (HLA-D); 2) immune function related genes (C2, C4A, C4B, TNFA and TNFB, transporter and proteasome genes); 3) other genes apparently not related to immune functions (CYP 21, valyl-tRNA synthetase).
