HDC gene

histidine decarboxylase

The information on this page was automatically extracted from online scientific databases.

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a member of the group II decarboxylase family and forms a homodimer that converts L-histidine to histamine in a pyridoxal phosphate dependent manner. Histamine regulates several physiologic processes, including neurotransmission, gastric acid secretion,inflamation, and smooth muscle tone.[provided by RefSeq, Aug 2010]

From UniProt:

Catalyzes the biosynthesis of histamine from histidine.
