Aminoacyl tRNA synthetases (ARSs) are a group of proteins, acting as transporters to transfer and attach the appropriate amino acids onto their cognate tRNAs for translation. So far, 18 out of 20 cytoplasmic ARSs are reported to be connected to different neuropathy disorders with multi-organ defects that are often accompanied with developmental delays. Thus, it is important to understand functions and impacts of ARSs at the whole organism level. Here, we systematically analyzed the spatiotemporal expression of 14 ars and 2 aimp genes during development in zebrafish that have not be previously reported. Not only in the brain, their dynamic expression patterns in several tissues such as in the muscles, liver and intestine suggest diverse roles in a wide range of development processes in addition to neuronal function, which is consistent with potential involvement in multiple syndrome diseases associated with ARS mutations. In particular, hinted by its robust expression pattern in the brain, we confirmed that aimp1 is required for the formation of cerebrovasculature by a loss-of-function approach. Overall, our systematic profiling data provides a useful basis for studying roles of ARSs during development and understanding their potential functions in the etiology of related diseases.
