General description

Cytidine 5′-triphosphate is a nucleoside triphosphate with a pyrimidine ring. It is present in RNA.

Application

Cytidine 5′-triphosphate disodium salt has been used:
  • for the conversion of adenosine monophosphate (AMP) to adenosine diphosphate (ADP) in luminometry analysis
  • in the preparation of ribonucleotide 5′-triphosphate precursors stocks for large-scale RNA synthesis
  • to perform in vitro transcription

Biochem/physiol Actions

Cytidine 5′-triphosphate (CTP) prevents the action of aspartate carbamoyltransferase. This enzyme participates in pyrimidine biosynthesis. Like adenosine triphosphate (ATP), CTP serves as a molecule of high energy. It acts as a coenzyme in glycerophospholipid biosynthesis and protein glycosylation.
P2X4 purinergic receptor agonist.
