Is there a central/distributed database somewhere that can tell me
that this particular IP prefix (say x.y.z.w) has been given to foo AS

Prefixes aren't assigned to ASNs. They're assigned to organizations/networks. Those entities may have several ASNs or no ASN of their own. You can see what ASN(s) annnounce what prefixes by looking at BGP.
