Accepted name:
deoxycytidylate C-methyltransferase
Other names:
dCMP methyltransferase
deoxycytidylate methyltransferase
Systematic name:
5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate:dCMP C-methyltransferase



dCMP is methylated by formaldehyde in the presence of tetrahydrofolate. CMP, dCTP and CTP can act as acceptors, but more slowly.
