abstract In this study, the catabolic pathway required for the degradation of the biogenic amine histamine (Hin) was genetically and biochemically characterized in Pseudomonas putida U. The 11 proteins (HinABCDGHFLIJK) that participate in this pathway are encoded by genes belonging to three loci hin1, hin2 and hin3 and by the gene hinK. The enzymes HinABCD catalyze the transport and oxidative deamination of histamine to 4-imidazoleacetic acid (ImAA). This reaction is coupled to those of other well-known enzymatic systems (DadXAR and CoxBA-C) that ensure both the recovery of the pyruvate required for Hin deamination and the genesis of the energy needed for Hin uptake. The proteins HinGHFLKIJ catalyze the sequential transformation of ImAA to fumaric acid via N2 -formylisoasparagine, formylaspartic acid and aspartic acid. The identified Hin pathway encompasses all the genes and proteins (transporters, energizing systems, catabolic enzymes and regulators) needed for the biological degradation of Hin. Our work was facilitated by the design and isolation of genetically engineered strains that degrade Hin or ImAA and of mutants that accumulate Ala, Asp and Hin catabolites. The implications of this research with respect to potential biotechnological applications are discussed.
