General description

Cytidine 5′-diphosphate (CDP) is synthesized from cytidine monophosphate (CMP) or uridine monophosphate (UMP) by the transfer of phosphoryl group, catalyzed by the enzyme uridylate kinase (UMPK). CTP synthetase catalyzes the conversion of CTP to CDP intermediates like CDP-diacylglycerol, CDP-choline and CDP-ethanolamine for phospholipid biosynthesis.


Cytidine 5′-diphosphate sodium salt hydrate has been used:
  • as a substrate in nucleoside diphosphatase (NDPase) enzyme histochemistry assay of gold fish eye sections
  • in ribonucleotide reductase assay
  • dCDP formation assay.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Cytidine 5′-diphosphate (CDP) is used as a substrate of nucleoside diphosphatase kinase to produce CTP for supporting DNA and RNA biosynthesis and of ribonucleotide reductase to product dCMP.
