- Asparaginyl-tRNA synthase (glutamine-hydrolysing)
enzymology, an asparaginyl-tRNA synthase (glutamine-hydrolysing) (EC number|184.108.40.206) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:ATP + aspartyl-tRNAAsn + L-glutamine ADP + phosphate + asparaginyl-tRNAAsn + L-glutamate
This enzyme belongs to the family of
ligases, specifically those forming carbon-nitrogen bonds carbon-nitrogen ligases with glutamine as amido-N-donor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is aspartyl-tRNAAsn:L-glutamine amido-ligase (ADP-forming). Other names in common use include Asp-AdT, Asp-tRNAAsn amidotransferase, aspartyl-tRNAAsn amidotransferase, and Asn-tRNAAsn:L-glutamine amido-ligase (ADP-forming). This enzyme participates in glutamate metabolismand alanine and aspartate metabolism.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|37211-76-0."
