||Recombinant human DCTD protein, fused to His-tag at N-terminus, was expressed inE.coliand purified by using conventional chromatography techniques. MW = 22.1 kDa (198aa).
||DCTD (deoxycytidylate deaminase), also known as dCMP deaminase, is a 178 amino acid allosteric enzyme that exists as a homohexamer and belongs to the cytidine and deoxycytidylate deaminase protein family. Using zinc as a cofactor, DCTD catalyzes the deamination of dCMP to dUMP, thereby producing the nucleotide substrate (dUMP) that is used by thymidylate synthase.
