IUBMB Comments
This reaction forms part of a two-reaction system for producing asparaginyl-tRNA in Deinococcus radiodurans and other organisms lacking a specific enzyme for asparagine synthesis. In the first step, a non-discriminating ligase (EC 6.1.1.23, aspartate---tRNAAsn ligase) mischarges tRNAAsn with aspartate, leading to the formation of aspartyl-tRNAAsn. The aspartyl-tRNAAsn is not used in protein synthesis until the present enzyme converts it into asparaginyl-tRNAAsn (aspartyl-tRNAAsp is not a substrate for this enzyme). A glutaminase subunit (cf. EC 3.5.1.2, glutaminase) produces an ammonia molecule that is transferred by a 30 A tunnel to a synthase subunit, where it is ligated to the carboxy group that has been activated by phosphorylation. Bacterial GatCAB complexes also has the activity of EC 6.3.5.7 (glutaminyl-tRNA synthase [glutamine-hydrolysing]).
