HisJ is a histidine binding subunit of the histidine permease, which exists in the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria. In order to incorporate the periplasmic histidine into the cell, HisJ captures histidine in the periplasm, and transfers the histidine to the transmembrane complex of histidine permease that is an ABC transporter. We established the backbone resonance assignments of 1H/13C/15N-labeled HisJ from Escherichia coli, in the histidine-bound and unbound states.
