B6db families: b
Description Histidine decarboxylase (family b)
Notes Family entirely composed of metazoan enzymes, very closely related to DOPA decarboxylases (EC

These sequences are generally over 600 aa long; however, in mammalian cells, mature histidine decarboxylase is approximately 512 aa long, due to a C-terminal truncation.
