Methionyl glutamyl tRNA synthetase complex Overview

GO Annotations consist of four mandatory components: a gene product, a term from one of the three Gene Ontology (GO) controlled vocabularies (Molecular Function, Biological Process, and Cellular Component), a reference, and an evidence code.

Catalyzes the aminoacylation of tRNAs by their cognate amino acid. Arc1p makes contact with MetRS and GluRS through its amino-terminal domain, while its carboxy-terminal contains a tRNA-binding domain. As a result of the formation of this complex, cognate tRNAs are bound with high affinity and aminoacylation efficiency is increased.
