ATP + protein L-histidine = ADP + protein N-phospho-L-histidine
EnvZ; histidine kinase (ambiguous); histidine protein kinase (ambiguous); protein histidine kinase (ambiguous); protein kinase (histidine) (ambiguous); HK1; HP165; Sln1p
This entry has been included to accommodate those protein-histidine kinases for which the phosphorylation site has not been established (i.e. either the pros- or tele-nitrogen of histidine). A number of histones can act as acceptor.
