Isoform 1, isoform 2 and T1-TrpRS have aminoacylation activity while T2-TrpRS lacks it. Isoform 2, T1-TrpRS and T2-TrpRS possess angiostatic activity whereas isoform 1 lacks it. T2-TrpRS inhibits fluid shear stress-activated responses of endothelial cells. Regulates ERK, Akt, and eNOS activation pathways that are associated with angiogenesis, cytoskeletal reorganization and shear stress-responsive gene expression.
Belongs to the class-I aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase family. Contains 1 WHEP-TRS domain.
Proteolytic cleavage generates 2 forms; T1-TrpRS and T2-TrpRS.
