CARS2 (mitochondrial cysteinyl tRNA synthetase) catalyzes the reaction of cysteine, mitochondrial tRNA(Cys), and ATP to form Cys-tRNA(Cys), AMP, and pyrophosphate. The CARS2 gene has been identified by computational analysis of the human genome sequence; its function has been inferred from those of the biochemically characterized mitochondrial aspartyl and tyrosyl tRNA synthetases (Bonnefond et al. 2005).
