N-terminal domain of Pyrococcus furiosus l-asparaginase forms stable, polydispersed oligomers. It helps in folding of the C-terminal domain and prevents thermal and refolding-mediated aggregation of a variety of substrate proteins, thus acting as molecular chaperone. It also inhibits polyQ and Aβ amyloidogenesis. It may be used in aggregation prevention in heterologous expression systems and also in therapeutic intervention of amyloidogenesis.
