Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.
Mass balance status: Balanced.
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: aspartate—ammonia ligase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: asparagine synthetase, L-asparagine synthetase
This is one of two reactions in E. coli that synthesizes asparagine from aspartate. The other reaction uses glutamine as the preferred nitrogen donor.
