  • Summary Asparagine is an important nitrogen transport compound in higher plants. Mobilized asparagine is deamidated by the enzyme asparaginase to aspartate and ammonia, which are major sources of organic nitrogen for plant growth and development. Little is known about the role of asparagine catabolism during plant development as the enzyme is difficult to assay, although it is known that asparaginase activity is located in tissues undergoing rapid growth and development, particularly in young… CONTINUE READING
