We report the structure of a strictly mitochondrial human synthetase, namely tyrosyl-tRNA synthetase (mt-TyrRS), in complex with an adenylate analog at 2.2 A resolution. The structure is that of an active enzyme deprived of the C-terminal S4-like domain and resembles eubacterial TyrRSs with a canonical tyrosine-binding pocket and adenylate-binding residues(More)
Human mitochondrial tyrosyl-tRNA synthetase and a truncated version with its C-terminal S4-like domain deleted were purified and crystallized. Only the truncated version, which is active in tyrosine activation and Escherichia coli tRNA(Tyr) charging, yielded crystals suitable for structure determination. These tetragonal crystals, belonging to space group(More)
