Cytidine deaminase, homodimeric (IPR006263)

Short name: Cyt_deam_dimer

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


This family represents the homodimeric form of cytidine deaminase, a zinc metalloprotein found in Escherichia coli [PMID: 10493793] and in Arabidopsis thaliana (Mouse-ear cress). A related, homotetrameric form with a much smaller subunit is found most bacteria and in animals, IPR006262. Both types may act on deoxycytidine as well as cytidine.
