Other names include: Tyrosine--tRNA ligase, cytoplasmic; Tyrosine-tRNA ligase, cytoplasmic ; tyrosine tRNA ligase 1, cytoplasmic; TYRRS; YRS; YTS. The encoded protein is an enzyme with an amino acid length of 528 and a mass of 59.1 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. CMTDIC is a member of the Class-I aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase family. This gene shares homology with other species, including: Fly, Mouse, Rat, Arabidopsis, E. coli, Zebrafish, Frog, Chicken.
