Cytidine 5'-diphosphate disodium - CAS 54394-90-0

Cytidine 5′-diphosphate disodium(CAT: I025443) is a compound that serves as a substrate for CDP (nucleoside diphosphate) kinase (EC This enzyme catalyzes the phosphorylation of nucleoside diphosphates, including cytidine 5′-diphosphate (CDP), to generate the corresponding nucleoside triphosphates (CTP in this case). CTP is an essential molecule involved in DNA and RNA biosynthesis and serves as a substrate for ribonucleotide reductase, which produces deoxycytidine monophosphate (dCMP) for DNA synthesis. Cytidine 5′-diphosphate disodium plays a crucial role in supporting these biochemical processes by providing the necessary building blocks for nucleic acid synthesis.
