Asparagine synthase, N-terminal domain (IPR033738)

Short name: AsnB_N

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships


This entry includes the N-terminal domain of asparagine synthase.

Asparagine synthetase B catalyses the ATP-dependent conversion of aspartate to asparagine [PMID: 11551215]. This enzyme is a homodimer, with each monomer composed of a glutaminase domain and a synthetase domain. The N-terminal glutaminase domain hydrolyzes glutamine to glutamic acid and ammonia [PMID: 10587437].
