InterPro : IPR001962

Name  Asparagine synthase Short Name  Asn_synthase
Type  Domain Description  This domain is always found associated with (). Family members that contain this domain catalyse the conversion of aspartate to asparagine. Asparagine synthetase B () catalyzes the assembly of asparagine from aspartate, Mg(2+)ATP, and glutamine.The three-dimensional architecture of the N-terminal domain of asparagine synthetase B is similar to that observed for glutamine phosphoribosylpyrophosphate amidotransferase while the molecular motif of the C-domain is reminiscent to that observed for GMP synthetase [].
