InterPro : IPR005147

Name  tRNA synthetase, B5-domain Short Name  tRNA_synthase_B5-dom
Type  Domain Description  Domain B5 is found in phenylalanine-tRNA synthetase beta subunits. This domain has been shown to bind DNA through a winged helix-turn-helix motif []. Phenylalanine-tRNA synthetase may influence common cellular processes via DNA binding, in addition to its aminoacylation function.
