Protein Overview: Alanine--tRNA ligase

Catalyzes the attachment of alanine to tRNA(Ala) in a two-step reaction: alanine is first activated by ATP to form Ala-AMP and then transferred to the acceptor end of tRNA(Ala). Also edits incorrectly charged Ser-tRNA(Ala) and Gly-tRNA(Ala) via its editing domain.

Synonyms: Alanyl-tRNA synthetase, AlaRS

Gene names: alaS, ALA1, ALATS
