- aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase
- aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase n any of a class of amino-acid-specific enzymes that catalyze an ATP-driven reaction producing an ester linkage between a carboxyl group of an amino acid and a hydroxyl group of its corresponding transfer RNA to form aminoacyl-tRNA during the early stage of protein synthesis called also aminoacyl-transfer RNA synthetase
* * *ami·no·acyl-tRNA syn·the·tase (ə-me″no-aґsəl sinґthə-tās) any of the group of ligases that catalyze the ATP-driven formation of a bond between an amino acid and a tRNA, activating the amino acids as a step in protein synthesis. Individual enzymes are highly specific for one amino acid and for any tRNA corresponding to that amino acid; they are known by the name of the amino acid acted on, e.g., alanyl-tRNA synthetase (formally called alanineâ€“tRNA ligase, EC 188.8.131.52).
