General description

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


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.

RNA synthesis using in vitro transcription by phage T7 RNA polymerase allows preparation of milligram quantities of RNA for biochemical, biophysical and structural investigations. Previous purification approaches relied on gel electrophoretic or gravity-flow chromatography methods. We present here a protocol...
