Domain

Argininosuccinate lyase, C-terminal (IPR029419)

Short name: Arg_succ_lyase_C

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain is found at the C terminus of argininosuccinate lyase [PMID: 11698398, PMID: 9256435].

Argininosuccinate lyase (ASL, EC:4.3.2.1) participates in arginine synthesis in all organisms catalysing the reversible breakdown of argininosuccinate to arginine and fumarate. The reaction is also part of the urea cycle [PMID: 15502303]. The crystal structures of ASLs from several species have been studied, in particular the duck delta1 and delta2 eye lens crystallins, which are inactive and active homologues of ASL, respectively [PMID: 11698398].
