|ATP + L-histidine + beta-alanine <=> ADP + phosphate + carnosine|
- This enzyme was thought to form AMP, but studies with highly purified
enzyme proved that it forms ADP.
- Carnosine is a dipeptide that is present at high concentrations in
skeletal muscle and the olfactory bulb of vertebrates.
- It is also found in the skeletal muscle of some invertebrates.
- The enzyme can also catalyze the formation of homocarnosine from
4-aminobutyrate and L-histidine, with much lower activity.
