Name: dCDP
Description:dCDP or Deoxycytidine 5'-diphosphate (dCDP) is a nucleoside diphosphate. It is related to the common nucleic acid CTP, or cytidine triphosphate, with the -OH (hydroxyl) group on the 2' carbon on the nucleotide's pentose removed (hence the deoxy- part of the name), and with one fewer phosphoryl group than CTP .dCDP is a product and competitive inhibitor of ribonucleoside-diphosphate reductase (EC from Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Structural studies indicate the base is in anti conformation and the sugar in S-type puckering, when bound either to the complete enzyme complex or to the large protein subunit alone. [PMID: 8019775] Ribonucleoside-diphosphate reductase is very tightly controlled by a variety of allosteric effectors. The enzyme has different regions of it that act differently on allosteric regulators. At the activity site, dATP is a general inhibitor for all substrates and ATP is an activator. Binding of nucleotides at the specificity site further controls the activity of the enzyme towards different substrates in order to maintain an appropriate balance of all deoxynucleotides for DNA synthesis. The dNDPs produced by the enzyme are then phosphorylated to dNTPs by kinases.
