Abstract

L-Asparaginase (E.C. 3.5.1.1) is used as an antineoplastic drug in the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. L-Asparaginase from Pseudomonas fluorescens was cloned and overexpressed in E. coli BL21. The Enzyme was found to be a Fusion protein-asparaginase complex which was given a lysozyme treatment and sonication, and then was purified in a Sepharose 6B column. The enzymatic properties of the recombinant enzyme were studied and the kinetic parameters were determined with kilometre of 109.99 mM and Vmax of 2.88 lM/min. Recombinant enzyme showed pH optima at 6.3 and temperature optima at 34 �C. Asp gene was successfully cloned into E. coli BL21 which produced high level of asparaginase intracellularly with 85.25 % recovery of enzyme with a specific activity of 0.94 IU/mg protein. The enzyme was a tetramer with molecular weight of approximately 141 kDa.
