TARS Catalyzes the attachment of threonine to tRNA(Thr) in a two-step reaction: threonine is first activated by ATP to form Thr-AMP and then transferred to the acceptor end of tRNA(Thr). Also edits incorrectly charged tRNA(Thr) via its editing domain, at the post-transfer stage. Belongs to the class-II aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase family. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
