GeneCards Summary for ASRGL1 Gene
ASRGL1 (Asparaginase Like 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Histidine, lysine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, proline and tryptophan catabolism and asparagine degradation. GO annotations related to this gene include hydrolase activity and asparaginase activity. An important paralog of this gene is TASP1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ASRGL1 Gene
Has both L-asparaginase and beta-aspartyl peptidase activity. May be involved in the production of L-aspartate, which can act as an excitatory neurotransmitter in some brain regions. Is highly active with L-Asp beta-methyl ester. Besides, has catalytic activity toward beta-aspartyl dipeptides and their methyl esters, including beta-L-Asp-L-Phe, beta-L-Asp-L-Phe methyl ester (aspartame), beta-L-Asp-L-Ala, beta-L-Asp-L-Leu and beta-L-Asp-L-Lys. Does not have aspartylglucosaminidase activity and is inactive toward GlcNAc-L-Asn. Likewise, has no activity toward glutamine.
