It does so by catalyzing the esterification of a specific cognate amino acid or its precursor to one of all its compatible cognate tRNAs to form an aminoacyl-tRNA.

In humans, the 20 different types of aa-tRNA are made by the 20 different aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, one for each amino acid of the genetic code. This is sometimes called “charging” or “loading” the tRNA with the amino acid.

Once the tRNA is charged, a ribosome can transfer the amino acid from the tRNA onto a growing peptideaccording to the genetic code.

As genetic efficiency evolved in higher organisms, 13 new domains with no obvious association with the catalytic activity of aaRSs genes have been added. The synthetase first binds ATP and the corresponding amino acid or its precursor to form an aminoacyl-adenylate, releasing inorganic pyrophosphate PP i.

Some synthetases also mediate an editing reaction to ensure high fidelity of tRNA charging.

If the incorrect tRNA is added aka. This can happen when two amino acids have different properties even if they have similar shapes—as is the case with Valine and Threonine. Although not all synthetases have a domain with the sole purpose of editing, they make up for it by having specific binding and activation of their affiliated amino acids.

Another contribution to the accuracy of these synthetases is the ratio of concentrations of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase and its cognate tRNA. There are two classes of aminoacyl tRNA synthetase, each composed of ten enzymes: Regardless of where the aminoacyl is initially attached to the nucleotide, the 2′- O -aminoacyl-tRNA will ultimately migrate to the 3′ position via transesterification.

Both classes of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases are multidomain proteins.

In a typical scenario, an aaRS consists of a catalytic domain where both the above reactions take place and an anticodon binding domain which interacts mostly with the anticodon region of the tRNA and ensures binding of the correct tRNA to the amino acid. The catalytic domains of all the aaRSs of a given class are found to be homologous to one another, whereas class I and class II aaRSs are isntetasa to one another.


The class I aaRSs have the ubiquitous Rossmann fold and have the parallel beta-strands architecture, whereas the class II aaRSs have a unique fold made up of antiparallel beta-strands.

Although this trend was seen in both class I and class II synthetases, the ajinoacil dependence for the two classes are very distinct. Beside their lack of overall sequence and structure similarity, class I and class II synthetases feature different ATP recognition mechanisms.

While class I binds via interactions mediated by backbone hydrogen bonds, class II uses a pair of arginine residues to establish salt bridges to its ATP ligand. This oppositional implementation is manifested in two structural motifs, the Backbone Brackets and Arginine Tweezers, which are observable in all class I and class II structures, respectively.

The high structural conservation of these motifs suggest that they must have been present since ancient times. Most of the aaRSs of a given specificity are evolutionarily closer to one another than to aaRSs of another specificity. Most of the aaRSs of a given specificity also belong to a single class. However, there are two distinct versions of the LysRS – one belonging to the class I family and the other belonging to the class II family.

The molecular phylogenies of aaRSs are often not consistent with accepted organismal phylogenies. That is, they violate the so-called canonical phylogenetic pattern shown by most other enzymes for the three domains of life – ArchaeaBacteriaand Eukarya.

Furthermore, the phylogenies inferred for aaRSs of different amino acids often do not agree with one another. In addition, aaRS paralogs within the same species show a high degree of divergence between them. These are clear indications that horizontal transfer has occurred several times during the evolutionary history of aaRSs. A widespread belief in the evolutionary stability of this superfamily, meaning that every organism has all the aaRSs for their corresponding aminoacids is misconceived.

With the exception of AlaRS, it has been discovered that 19 out of the 20 human aaRSs have added at least one new domain or motif. A common novel function within human aaRSs is providing additional regulation of biological processes. There exists a theory that the increasing number of aaRSs that add domains is due to the continuous evolution of higher organisms with more complex and efficient building blocks and biological mechanisms.

One key piece of evidence to this theory is that after a new domain is added to an aaRS, the domain becomes fully integrated.

In some of the aminoacyl tRNA synthetases, the cavity that holds the amino acid can be mutated and modified to carry unnatural amino acids synthesized in the lab, and to attach them to specific tRNAs.


This expands the genetic code, beyond the twenty canonical amino acids found in nature, to include an unnatural amino acid as well. The organism that expresses the mutant synthetase can then be genetically programmed to incorporate the unnatural amino acid into any desired position in any protein of interest, allowing biochemists or structural biologists to probe or change the protein’s function.

For instance, one can start with the gene for a protein that binds a certain sequence of DNA, and, by directing an unnatural amino acid with a reactive side-chain into the binding site, create a new amlnoacil that cuts the DNA at the target-sequence, rather than binding it.

By mutating aminoacyl tRNA synthetases, chemists have expanded the genetic codes of various organisms to arjt lab-synthesized amino acids with all kinds of useful properties: It has also been discovered that tRNA synthetases may be partially involved in the etiology of cancer.

These correlations between aaRSs and certain diseases have opened up a new door to synthesizing therapeutics.

The novel domain additions to aaRS genes are accretive and progressive up the Tree of Life. Mutations in the mitochondrial enzyme have been associated with a number of genetic disorders including Leigh syndromeWest syndrome and CAGSSS cataractsgrowth hormone deficiency, sensory neuropathysensorineural hearing loss and skeletal dysphasia syndrome.
