ICC/IF 1/100 - 1/1000.


  • Function

    Required for assembly and stability of the aminoacyl-tRNA synthase complex. Mediates ubiquitination and degradation of FUBP1, a transcriptional activator of MYC, leading to MYC down-regulation which is required for aveolar type II cell differentiation. Blocks MDM2-mediated ubiquitination and degradation of p53/TP53. Functions as a proapoptotic factor.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 GST C-terminal domain.
  • Post-translational

    Phosphorylated on serine residues in response to UV irradiation.
    Ubiquitinated by PARK2, leading to its degradation by the proteasome. Mutant PARK2 fails to ubiquitinate AIMP2 efficiently, allowing its accumulation which may contribute to neurodegeneration associated with Parkinson disease.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm > cytosol. Nucleus. Following DNA damage, dissociates from the aminoacyl-tRNA synthase complex and translocates from the cytoplasm to the nucleus.
