IARS Catalyzes the specific attachment of an amino acid to its cognate tRNA in a 2 step reaction: the amino acid (AA) is first activated by ATP to form AA-AMP and then transferred to the acceptor end of the tRNA. Belongs to the class-I aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase family. Expressed in liver and muscle (at protein level). Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
