- ID: MMSYN1_0260
- Name: ValS
- Organism: JCVI-Syn3.0
- UniProt ID: A0A014MFE2
This protein is an enzyme catalyzing the reaction a tRNAval + L-valine + ATP → an L-valyl-[tRNAval] + AMP + diphosphate, covalently linking L-valine to its specific tRNA molecule using ATP hydrolysis (EcoCyc). Fittingly, the enzyme also binds ATP in addition to Valine. ValRS can inadvertently process amino acids similar to valine, like threonine, so it has a "posttransfer" editing activity that hydrolyzes mischarged Thr-tRNA(Val) in a tRNA-dependent manner (UniProt). ValRS has two distinct active sites: one for aminoacylation and one for editing. The misactivated threonine is translocated from the active site to the editing site (UniProt). This enzyme works with the Ribosome to translate mRNA to an amino acid sequence.

Function and Homologs
- Functional Category: Translation.
- Product: Valine—tRNA ligase
- Module: Ligase.
- Closest homologous proteins: The top (max three) homologous proteins to this protein, as identified by BLAST searches.
- Equivalent E. coli protein: EG11067.
- Expression Level: medium
- Expression Level Hypothesis:
This protein helps in translation, meaning it is probably relatively important to be abundant in the cell, but one protein can continually charge several tRNAs with valine and valine is only 1 of many amino acids, so the expression level may not be the highest.
- Expression Level References and Description:
The valS protein in File:MgenitaliumSimProteinCounts.xlsx indicates a medium level for this protein.
- Expression Time: At which time should the gene be expressed in the lifecycle of our organism? early
- Expression Time References and Description:
According to the Wikipedia article on trna synthetases, these proteins are key to translation and can also play a role in editing incorrectly charged trna molecules. This leads me to believe that it is required early, but not necessarily at the beginning, because it is not necessary for transcription but is necessary to translate proteins.
- Other Components:
Valine-tRNA ligase does not require any other proteins to perform its function, so there are not really other components. There are however other tRNA ligases that also work to make translation possible, like LysS.
- Possible Dependencies:
This ligase depends on the presence of valine, for obvious reasons, so the charged trna can be formed.
- Process: charging tRNA
- Inputs: tRNAval, L-valine, ATP
- Outputs: L-valyl-[tRNAval], AMP, diphosphate
