Homologous Superfamily

L-asparaginase, C-terminal (IPR027473)

Short name: L-asparaginase_C

Overlapping entries


This superfamily represents the C-terminal domain of the L-asparaginase. Each monomer of L-asparaginase is arranged into two easily identifiable domains, the larger N-terminal domain and the smaller C-terminal domain, connected by a linker consisting of approximately 20 residues [PMID: 12499544]. Asparaginase is found in various plant, animal and bacterial cells, catalyses the deamination of asparagine to yield aspartic acid and an ammonium ion, resulting in a depletion of free circulatory asparagine in plasma [PMID: 3026924].
