AIMP2, Aminoacyl tRNA synthase complex-interacting multifunctional protein 2
Also Known as
AIMP2_HUMAN, AIMP2, JTV1
Required for assembly and stability of the aminoacyl-tRNA synthase complex (PubMed:19131329). 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. Part of the multisynthetase complex (MSC), a multisubunit complex that groups tRNA ligases for Arg (RARS), Asp (DARS), Gln (QARS), Ile (IARS), Leu (LARS), Lys (KARS), Met (MARS) the bifunctional ligase for Glu and Pro (EPRS) and the auxiliary subunits AIMP1/p43, AIMP2/p38 and EEF1E1/p18 (PubMed:24312579, PubMed:19131329, PubMed:19289464). Interacts (via N-terminus) with KARS (PubMed:9878398, PubMed:15220430, PubMed:18029264, PubMed:23159739, PubMed:26074468). Interacts with EPRS (PubMed:26472928). Forms a linear complex that contains MARS, EEF1E1, EPRS and AIMP2 that is at the core of the multisubunit complex (PubMed:26472928). Binds FUBP1 (via C-terminus). Interacts in both its unphosphorylated and phosphorylated forms with p53/TP53 (via N-terminus) in the nucleus following UV irradiation. Interacts (via N-terminus) with PRKN/parkin (via first RING-type domain) (PubMed:16135753). Interacts with TARSL2 (PubMed:24312579).
