Accepted name: cytidine deaminase
Reaction: (1) cytidine + H2O = uridine + NH3
(2) 2′-deoxycytidine + H2O = 2′-deoxyuridine + NH3
Other name(s): cytosine nucleoside deaminase; (deoxy)cytidine deaminase; cdd (gene name); CDA (gene name)
Systematic name: cytidine/2′-deoxycytidine aminohydrolase
Comments: Contains zinc. Catalyses the deamination of cytidine and 2′-deoxycytidine with similar efficiencies. The enzyme, which is widely distributed among organisms, is involved in salvage of both exogenous and endogenous cytidine and 2′-deoxycytidine for UMP synthesis.
