ⓘ Asparagine synthetase

Asparagine synthetase is a chiefly cytoplasmic enzyme that generates asparagine from aspartate. This amidation reaction is similar to that promoted by glutamine synthetase. The enzyme is ubiquitous in its distribution in mammalian organs, but basal expression is relatively low in tissues other than the exocrine pancreas.

Above-average presence of asparagine synthetase in certain strains of leukemia was associated with a significant factor of resistance to chemotherapy, particularly chemotherapy, L-Asparaginase.
