L-Asparaginase is an enzyme used in the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia and other related malignancies. Its further use includes reduction of asparagine concentration in food products, which may lead to formation of acrylamide. Currently bacterial asparaginase is produced at industrial scale, but the enzyme isolated from bacterial origin is often associated with adverse reactions. These side effects require development of asparaginase from alternative sources. In the present study… 

Fusarium sp. l-asparaginases: purification, characterization, and potential assessment as an antileukemic chemotherapeutic agent

The current work presents additional information regarding the purification and characterization of the enzyme produced by Fusarium sp.

Isolation and screening of l-asparaginase free of glutaminase and urease from fungal sp.

This is the first report focussing on fungi that can synthesize l-asparaginase of the desired specificity, and available evidence indicates variants negative for glutaminase and urease would provide higher therapeutic index than variants positive for glutaminaase and Urease.

Sequencing and characterization of an L-asparaginase gene from a new species of Penicillium section Citrina isolated from Cerrado

The precise identification of this new species was confirmed by morphological characteristics and sequence comparisons of the nuclear 18S-5.8S-28S partial nrDNA including the ITS1 and ITS2 regions, RNA polymerase II, β-tubulin and calmodulin genomic regions.

A Comprehensive Review on l-Asparaginase and Its Applications

The past and present applications of l-asparaginase are explored, the methods of its production through the solid state and submerged fermentation, purification, and characterization as well as its biological roles are discussed.

Production, Purification and Advance Applications of L- Asparaginase (Review)

Comparison of both methods revealed that SSF is preferable over SmF because it is inexpensive, environment-friendly and it provides high yield of L-Asparaginase enzyme.
