Asparaginase catalyzes the hydrolysis of L-asparagine to L-aspartate and ammonia..Asparaginase does not occur naturally in humans but is found in bacteria, plants and some animals. Since asparagine is an essential amino acid in certain cell types, including some cancers, controlling the circulating levels of asparagine is a way of inhibiting protein synthesis needed for rapid growth. AkrivisBio’s Asparaginase Activity Assay provides a simple, sensitive means of measuring asparaginase activity in biological samples.
