• dCMP deaminase (EC 3.5.4.12, deoxycytidylate deaminase, deoxy-CMP-deaminase, deoxycytidylate aminohydrolase, deoxycytidine monophosphate deaminase, deoxycytidine-5'-phosphate deaminase, deoxycytidine-5'-monophosphate aminohydrolase) is an enzyme which converts deoxycytidylic acid to deoxyuridylic acid.

  • Other members of this group include guanine deaminase (GDA) (converts guanine to xanthine), dCMP deaminase (DCTD) (involved in cytosine metabolism) and porphobilinogen deaminase (PBGD) (involved in heme biosynthesis). (tocris.com)
  • Deaminases are enzymes that catalyze the hydrolysis of C-NH 2 bonds in amino compounds, producing ammonia. (tocris.com)
  • SNPs in deoxycytidine kinase (dCK), deoxycytidine monophosphate deaminase (DCTD), and ribonucleotide reductase M1 polypeptide (RRM1) were analyzed with genomic DNA of 10 breast cancer cell lines, 74 peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) samples from advanced breast cancer patients treated with gemcitabine, and 56 PBMC samples from healthy volunteers.
