Metabolite Identification
Common NameL-Histidinol
DescriptionL-Histidinol, a structural analogue of the essential amino acid L-histidine, enhances the toxicity of a variety of anticancer drugs for many tumour cells of animal origin (PMID: 8297120 ). L-Histidinol inhibits human myristoyl-CoA:protein-myristoyltransferase (hNMT), an essential eukaryotic enzyme that catalyzes the cotranslational transfer of myristate into the NH2-terminal glycine residue of a number of important proteins of diverse function (PMID: 9778369 ).
