Coding sequence in expression plasmid

Alias: bCD

E. coli Cytosine Deaminase

Cytosine deaminase (CD) is an enzyme found in prokaryotes and lower eukaryotes but absent in higher eukaryotes. It converts cytosine and its analog, 5-fluorocytosine (5-FC), to uracil and 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) respectively. 5-FU is a toxic compound commonly used as anticancer drug.

This gene is available in pUNO1 expression plasmid selectable with Blasticidin.
