S. cerevisiae 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.
InvivoGen also provides a synthetic CpG-free Cytosine Deaminase (CD).
