The pathway of histidine biosynthesis comprises ten reactions carried out by nine enzymes coded for by eight genes. There are nine free and one enzyme-bound intermediate. This complexity derives from the existence of three bifunctional proteins in the pathway as well as one holoenzyme composed of two separate gene products.
The overall regulation of the pathway stems from feedback inhibition of the first pathway step by the final product of the pathway, L-histidine.
The histidine biosynthesis pathway shares metabolites with the purine and nucleotide biosynthesis pathways. This affords the opportunity to connect synthesis of amino acids with the synthesis of nucleotides. The common metabolites are PRPP (which is also fundamental to intermediate metabolism), and 5-aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide ribonucleotide (AICAR).
