Name  Aspartate--ammonia ligase Short Name  AsnA
Type  Family Description  Aspartate--ammonia ligase (asparagine synthetase) catalyses the conversion of L-aspartate to L-asparagine in the presence of ATP and ammonia. This family represents one of two non-homologous forms of aspartate--ammonia ligase found in Escherichia coli. This type is also found in Haemophilus influenzae, Treponema pallidumand Lactobacillus delbrueckii, but appears to have a very limited distribution. The fact that the protein from the H. influenzae is more than 70% identical to that from the spirochete T. pallidum, but less than 65% identical to that from the closely related E. coli, strongly suggests lateral transfer.
