E. coli Cytosine Deaminase fused to Uracil Phosphoribosyltransferase

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.
To further increase the efficiency of the CD/5-FC pair, InvivoGen has fused the gene encoding uracil phosphoribosyl transferase to the CD gene. UPRT converts 5-FU to 5-FUMP, an irreversible inhibitor of thymidylate synthase.
