|Gene:||hisC||Accession Numbers: EG10446 (MetaCyc), b2021, ECK2016|
Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655
Subunit composition of histidinol-phosphate aminotransferase = [HisC]2
Histidinol-phosphate aminotransferase (HisC) catalyzes the seventh step in the biosynthesis of histidine. HisC catalyzes the conversion of imidazole acetol-phosphate to histidinol-phosphate [Grisolia85].
A number of crystal structures have been determined for the functional HisC dimer. HisC has been crystallized on its own to 2 Å, with histidinol-phosphate to 2.2 Å and with N-(5'-phosphopyridoxyl)-L-glutamate to 2.3 Å [Haruyama01]. It has also been crystallized with pyridoxamine-5'-phosphate to 1.5 Å, as an internal aldimine with pyridoxal-5'-phosphate to 2.2 Å and in a covalent complex with pyridoxal-5'-phosphate and L-histidinol to 2.2 Å [Sivaraman01].
Spectroscopic and pK(a) analyses of HisC have also been carried out [Mizuguchi03].
HisC expression levels were elevated when grown anaerobically at high pH [Yohannes04].
