  Domain Name: WEPRS_RNA
WEPRS_RNA binding domain. This short RNA-binding domain is found in several higher eukaryote aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases (aaRSs). It is found in multiple copies in eukaryotic bifunctional glutamyl-prolyl-tRNA synthetases (EPRS) in a region that separates the N-terminal glutamyl-tRNA synthetase (GluRS) from the C-terminal prolyl-tRNA synthetase (ProRS). It is also found at the N-terminus of vertebrate tryptophanyl-tRNA synthetases (TrpRS). This domain consists of a helix-turn-helix structure, which is similar to other RNA-binding proteins. It is involved in both protein-RNA interactions by binding tRNA and protein-protein interactions, which are important for the formation of aaRSs into multienzyme complexes.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.

Tips:
 If you've navigated here from a protein, hovering over a position on the weblogo will display the corresponding protein position for that domain position.

 The histograms below the weblogo indicate mutations found on the domain. Red is for disease (OMIM) and blue is for SNPs.

 Functional Features are displayed as orange boxes under the histograms. You can choose which features are displayed in the box below.
