FunctionConversion of asparagine to aspartate [catalytic activity: L-asparagine + H(2)O = L-aspartate + NH(3).]
ProductProbable L-aparaginase AnsA
CommentsRv1538c, (MTCY48.27), len: 326 aa. Probable ansA, L-aparaginase, most similar to ASPG_BACLI|P30363 L-asparaginase (322 aa), FASTA scores: opt: 417, E(): 8.8e-19, (30.9% identity in 314 aa overlap). Contains PS00917 Asparaginase / glutaminase active site signature 2.
Functional categoryIntermediary metabolism and respiration
ProteomicsIdentified by mass spectrometry in Triton X-114 extracts of M. tuberculosis H37Rv (See Malen et al., 2010). Identified by mass spectrometry in the membrane protein fraction and whole cell lysates of M. tuberculosis H37Rv but not the culture filtrate (See de Souza et al., 2011).
MutantNon-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv in a MtbYM rich medium, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (see Minato et al. 2019). Non-essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by analysis of saturated Himar1 transposon libraries (see DeJesus et al. 2017). Non essential gene by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis in H37Rv strain (see Sassetti et al., 2003). Essential gene for in vitro growth of H37Rv, by Himar1 transposon mutagenesis (See Griffin et al., 2011).
