- Description: Asparagine-tRNA ligase (AsnRS) is a member of the family of aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases, which interpret the genetic code by covalently linking amino acids to their specific tRNA molecules. The reaction is driven by ATP hydrolysis. AsnRS belongs to the Class II aminoacyl tRNA synthetases, which share three regions of homology Eriani90. AsnRS is a dimer in solution Anselme89, Aoki92. An asparagine-tRNA ligase is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction ATP + L-asparagine + tRNAAsn -> AMP + diphosphate + L-asparaginyl-tRNAAsn. As an Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase, the enzyme activates an amino acid for translation by forming an aminoacyladenylate intermediate and then linking this activated amino acid to the corresponding tRNA molecule (amino acid-tRNA, aminoacyl-tRNA). In general, a specific aminoacyl-tRNA synthase is available for each amino acid. Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases attach amino acids to the 3' termini of cognate tRNAs to establish the specificity of protein synthesis Francklyn2. The 3 substrates of this enzyme are ATP, L-asparagine, and tRNA(Asn), whereas its 3 products are AMP, diphosphate, and L-asparaginyl-tRNA(Asn).

- Equivalent JCVI functional protein: MMSYN1_0076.
- Expression Level: [High].
- Expression Level Hypothesis: The asnS gene encodes the Asparagine-tRNA ligase. Asparagine-tRNA ligase catalyzes the attachment of asparagine to tRNA, meaning it helps in translation of the protein. The dataset shows that the expression level for asnS is high. Ligases that attach amino acids to tRNA should be expressed at relatively high abundance since they are an important part of protein synthesis which is an important part of cell life.
- Expression Level References and Description: E. coli proteome data: File:EcoliProteomicExpressionData.xlsx
- Expression Time: [Early].
- Expression Level Hypothesis: asnS activates an amino acid for translation by forming an aminoacyladenylate intermediate and then linking this activated amino acid to the corresponding tRNA molecule. trna synthetases are key to translation and can play a role in editing incorrectly charged trna molecules. Thus, this gene should be required early, but not necessarily at the beginning, as it is not necessary for transcription but is necessary to prepare the proteins for translation.
- Expression Time References and Description: Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase
- Other Components in the functional module: Because this functional module is the enzyme itself, there is no other componen
- Possible Dependencies: rpsJ binds tRNA to the ribosome, which is an important part of the translation process. This is necessary for the Asparagine-tRNA to be useful.
- Process: The enzyme activates an amino acid for translation by forming an aminoacyladenylate intermediate and then linking this activated amino acid to the corresponding tRNA molecule (amino acid-tRNA, aminoacyl-tRNA)
