Lysyl-tRNA Synthetase

Lysyl-tRNA Synthetase has a couple known names, one of them being aminocyl tRNA. The major role of this protein is translation during protein synthesis. For a protein to be classified and placed into an amino acid group, its amino acid sequence must be properly translated. Transfer RNA helps translate the protein which helps with genetics. Aminoacyl tRNA synthetases are the enzymes that are responsible for the specific aminoacylation of tRNA (Yifat, 2013). Let’s take a more in depth look at the function of this protein by breaking it down.
Lysyl, otherwise known as lysyl oxidase, is synthesized as a preproprotein, meaning it contains a nonpolar signal

It attaches itself to a dinucleotide found in the cytoplasm, which then interacts with the protein AIMP2, which has a distinct effect on white blood cells (Yang, 2013). Each cell in the human body has what’s called macrophages. These macrophages work with white blood cells. They are known as the clean-up crew that goes around eating most of the bacteria and other junk that gets left behind.
Lysyl-tRNA synthetase binds to transcription factors, which can lead to allergies. It also may be a target of autoantibodies, which can lead to disease (Smith, 1998). Lysyl-tRNA synthetase is also involved in the signaling pathway, which has a direct connection to the genes in the DNA of a person.
Lysyl-tRNA Synthetase has some important rules. It is important for protein synthesis, helps regulate signal molecules, and an important activator of a person’s genes in their DNA. Lysyl-tRNA Synthetase will continue to be studied for years to come and I am curious as to what more information scientists will find about

    Genetic mutations are the source of numerous hereditary diseases. This has been discovered by the comparison of two DNA sequences with bioformatic software. Two sequences are aligned and compared in order to locate mutations in the DNA (Module 4 Protocol,1). Escherichia coli aka E. coli was used as the test subject in this lab because it employs lac operons while transcribing mRNA. An operon is a unit of linked genes that regulates genes in charge of protein synthesis.…

    Translation may occur in either the cytoplasm or the rough endoplasmic reticulum. Two molecular factors that play a key role in translation are transfer RNAs (tRNAs) and ribosomes. tRNA is a RNA molecule that carries amino acids to the ribosomes where they will be added to a growing polypeptide chain. They contain a base pair of 3 amino acids that can bind to the complementary mRNA codons. The relationship between codons and amino acids is known as the genetic code where it defines how sequences of codons specify which amino acid will be added next.…

    Does FLCN require FNIP to sense amino acids? Folliculin exists in a complex by binding to either of its novel interacting proteins, FNIP1 or FNIP2. Truncation mutations commonly seen in FLCN gene of BHD patients promote the loss of binding with FNIPs (). Moreover, FLCN must exists as a complex to interact with the Rag GTPases because individual purified protein components abolish FLCN-FNIP interactions with RagA/C (Tsun). Further biochemical evidence discovered FLCN-FNIP GAP activity can only occur as a complex because when expressed individually potentiates its GTP hydrolysis function (Tsun).…
