|Abstract:||To explore the anti-proliferative activity of purified l-asparaginase from Aspergillus oryzae CCT 3940 (A. oryzae). Methods l-asparaginase was produced by submerged fermentation and purified to electrophoresis homogeneity by ionic exchanged chromatography in a fast protein liquid chromatographic system. The purified enzyme was characterized and used for the antiproliferative assay against nine tumor cell lines and one non-tumor cell line. Results The free glutaminase l-asparaginase was purified 28.6 fold. l-asparaginase showed high stability under physiological condition, remaining stable in the pH range 7.0–8.0 after 1 h incubation at temperature range 30–45 °C. The Km and Vmax values of purified l-asparaginase were estimated as 0.66 mmol/L and 313 IU/mL, respectively. The purified enzyme could inhibit the growth of a broad range of human tumor cell lines at the concentrations studied. Also, the enzyme from A. oryzae CCT 3940 could inhibit tumor growth of leukemia cell line (K562) with a total growth inhibition value of (3.2 ± 2.5) IU/mL and did not inhibit the non-carcinogenic human cell line growth at the concentrations studied. Conclusions The sensitivity of the cells lines to purified l-asparaginase from A. oryzae CCT 3940 appeared to be concentration dependent affording a more significant decrease in cell growth than that observed for the commercial l-asparaginase from Escherichia coli. The l-asparaginase from A. oryzae CCT 3940 has a high potential for pharmaceutical exploitation in the treatment of leukemia|
