2?-Deoxycytidine (deoxyC) is one of the deoxynucleosides which after phosphorylation to dCTP is used to synthesis DNA via various DNA polymerases or reverse transcriptases. 2?-Deoxycytidine (deoxyC) is the substrate for deoxycytidine deaminase (EC 188.8.131.52) which converts it into 2?-deoxyuridine. 2?-Deoxycytidine is phosphorylated to the nucleotide dCMP by the enzyme deoxycytidine kinase (DCK).
