Protein: ASP21_YEAST

L-asparaginase 2-1

CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: L-asparagine + H(2)O = L-aspartate + NH(3). BIOPHYSICOCHEMICAL PROPERTIES: Kinetic parameters: KM=0.27 mM for L-asparagine; KM=0.27 mM for D-asparagine; KM=0.27 mM for N-acetyl-L-asparagine; KM=0.07 mM for N-carbamyl-L-asparagine; KM=0.06 mM for N-isoleucyl-L-asparagine; KM=0.06 mM for N-glycyl-L-asparagine; KM=0.06 mM for N-valyl-L-asparagine; KM=0.2 mM for N-methionyl-L-asparagine; KM=0.4 mM for N-glycyl-D-asparagine; Vmax=42 umol/min/mg enzyme for L-asparagine; Vmax=60 umol/min/mg enzyme for D-asparagine; Vmax=167 umol/min/mg enzyme for N-acetyl-L-asparagine; Vmax=79 umol/min/mg enzyme for N-carbamyl-L-asparagine; Vmax=67 umol/min/mg enzyme for N-isoleucyl-L-asparagine; Vmax=135 umol/min/mg enzyme for N-glycyl-L-asparagine; Vmax=56 umol/min/mg enzyme for N-valyl-L-asparagine; Vmax=92 umol/min/mg enzyme for N-methionyl-L-asparagine; Vmax=8 umol/min/mg enzyme for N-glycyl-D-asparagine; Note=Does not act on isoasparagine, L-aspartate diamide, beta- alanine amide and L-glutamine; pH dependence: Optimum pH is 6.8. Active from pH 5.5 to pH 7.5. Stable from pH 3.5 to pH 10.5; more...

SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Secreted. Periplasm.

INDUCTION: Subject to nitrogen catabolite repression (NCR). Not found in cells grown on rich nitrogen sources like ammonia, glutamine or glutamate, but is found in cells that have been subjected to nitrogen starvation or have been grown on a poor nitrogen source such as proline. MISCELLANEOUS: Yeast contains 2 L-asparaginase isoenzymes: cytoplasmic L-asparaginase I, and cell wall L-asparaginase II. MISCELLANEOUS: There are 4 copies for L-asparaginase 2 in yeast. The 4 identical copies ASP3-1, ASP3-2, ASP3-3 and ASP3-4 are arranged in tandem repeats located near a ribosomal DNA cluster.

SIMILARITY: Belongs to the asparaginase 1 family.

SEQUENCE CAUTION: Sequence=AAA34438.1; Type=Frameshift; Positions=243;
