ENZYME entry: EC 6.3.5.4

Accepted Name
Asparagine synthase (glutamine-hydrolyzing).
Alternative Name(s)
AS-B.
Asparagine synthetase (glutamine-hydrolyzing).
Asparagine synthetase B.
Glutamine-dependent asparagine synthetase.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + L-aspartate + L-glutamine + H(2)O <=> AMP + diphosphate + L-asparagine + L-glutamate
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme from Escherichia coli has two active sites that are connected by an intramolecular ammonia tunnel.
  • The enzyme catalyzes three distinct chemical reactions: glutamine hydrolysis to yield ammonia takes place in the N-terminal domain.
  • The C-terminal active site mediates both the synthesis of a beta- aspartyl-AMP intermediate and its subsequent reaction with ammonia.
  • The ammonia released is channeled to the other active site to yield asparagine.
