Biochem/physiol Actions

L-Histidine is an essential amino acid that binds to metal ions and may aid in the transport of copper. Histidine is widely present at the active sites of enzymes. It also has a role in binding of heme groups, macromolecules and phosphate groups in the binding sites of proteins.
Precursor of histamine by action of histidine decarboxylase.
