Abstract: Deamidase AG (asparaginase-glutaminase) from Pseudomonas fluorescens AG was shown to hydrolyze 1-glutamine and 1-asparagine highly effectively. Besides, the enzyme exhibited the rather high rate of deamidation of D-asparagine and D-glutamine (70% and 100%, respectively), Nalpha-butyl asparagine (63%) and among peptides -- of glycyl-L-asparagine (40%). L-glutamic acid gamma-methyl ester was hydrolyzed only slightly (5%). Effect of several substrate analogues on the deamidase AG activity was studied as well. Albiciine (alpha-amino-beta-ureide propionic acid) proved to be the strongest inhibitor (100%). Beta-Methyl aspartic acid, S-carbamoyl cysteine, alpha-ketoglutaric acid showed the slight inhibitory effect (20%). Amount of active centres per enzyme molecule was estimated by means of 14C-albiciine. Deamidase AG had apparently only one active centre. In estimation of relationship between the rate of reaction and substrate (L-asparagine) concentration, the reaction was found to follow Michaelis-Menten kinetics, K(m) = 4.5 with 10-4 M.
