Abstract

SUMMARY: The histidine decarboxylase produced by a species of (strain 30 isolated from horse-stomach contents; Rodwell, 1953) has been examined in detail. Attempts to resolve a cell-free enzyme preparation into an inactive apoenzyme and a coenzyme were unsuccessful. Cells grown in a medium deficient in pyridoxin had greatly diminished lysine and ornithine decarboxylase activity, whereas their histidine decarboxylase activity was not at all diminished.
