Guine pig liver L-asparaginase. Separation, purification, and intracellular localisation of two distinct enzymatic activities.


Two distinct L-asparaginase (EC activities were detected in guinea pig liver: Asparaginase 1 and Asparaginase 2. Asparaginase 1 has been purified 272 fold from the crude homogenate; its molecular weight was evaluated by gel filtration to be about 150 000. The purified preparation was shown to be homogeneous by cellulose acetate strip and polyacrylamide disc-gel electrophoresis. Asparaginase 2 has been purified 63.5 fold from the crude homogenate. Its molecular weight was evaluated by gel filtration to be about 21 500. Cellulose acetate strip electrophoresis demonstrated two bands, one of which corresponded to Asparaginase 1 and the other to Asparaginase 2. Cellular fractionation in the ultracentrifuge, showed Asparaginase 1 to be present only in the cytosol fraction. Asparaginase 2 which was unstable at 105 000 X g seemed mostly localized in the mitochondria and secondarily in the cytoplasmic fraction.
