Application

L-Histidine monohydrochloride, non-animal, is used in cell culture media formulations used in biomanufacturing. The use of non-animal-sourced L-Histidine and other components avoids the risk of contaminating bioproducts with adventitious viruses.
L-Histidine monohydrochloride monohydrate has been used in bee cell culture medium.

Biochem/physiol Actions

L-Histidine is involved in the one-carbon unit metabolism. It is associated with protein methylation. L-Histidine is a part of hemoglobin structure and function. L-Histidine is a component of dipeptides with antioxidative property. Histidine serves as a precursor for the formation of histamine, which is associated with allergic responses. Urocanic acid, an immune response modulator in skin is also biosynthesised from histidine.
