MARS (cytosolic methionyl tRNA synthetase) catalyzes the reaction of methionine, tRNA(Met), and ATP to form Met-tRNA(Met), AMP, and pyrophosphate. The enzyme, a class I tRNA synthetase, is a monomer found in the cell as a component of the mutienzyme aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase complex (Kaminska et al. 2001).
