ENZYME entry: EC 3.5.4.38

Accepted Name
Single-stranded DNA cytosine deaminase.
Alternative Name(s)
Activation-induced cytidine deaminase.
Activation-induced deaminase.
Reaction catalysed
Cytosine in single-stranded DNA + H(2)O <=> uracil in single-stranded DNA + NH(3)
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme exclusively catalyzes deamination of cytosine in single- stranded DNA.
  • It preferentially deaminates five-nucleotide bubbles.
  • The optimal target consists of a single-stranded NWRCN motif (W = A or T, R = A or G).
  • The enzyme initiates antibody diversification processes by deaminating immunoglobulin sequences.
