General description

Cytidine is a nucleoside molecule. It is formed when cytosine is attached to a ribose ring through a β-N1-glycosidic bond.

Application

Cytidine has been used as a component to prepare ribonucleoside stock solution to assess its effects on the anaerobic growth of several Bacillus mojavensis strains.
Cytidine has been used as a non-essential aminoacid component of minimal essential medium (MEM) to analyse interspecies somatic cell nucleus transfer (iSCNT)-derived blastocysts. It has also been used as a supplement in the culture medium of HeLa cells, to study the effects of cytidine addition on rods and rings (RR) induced by glutamine deprivation.
