General Comments
This protein has multiple functions. It acts as a lysophospholipase, a transacylase, a platelet-activating factor (PAF) acetylhydrolase and an L-asparaginase. L-asparaginase catalyses the deamination of asparagine to aspartic acid and a single ammonium ion. This action decreases circulating free asparagine in plasma.
