Important Sources and Medicinal Applications of L-Asparaginase

Abstract

L-Asparaginase (EC 3.5.1.1) is an amidohydrolase which catalyzes the breakdown of L-asparagine to ammonia and L-aspartic acid. Its broad use in both: food industry and chemotherapy makes it an object of wide research. It can reduce acrylamide formation in the baking of starchy foods and selectively kill tumor cells by depleting asparagine levels in the… (More)
