Chemical Information
NameCytidine 5'-triphosphate
DescriptionFound in cheese and liver CTP is a high-energy molecule equal to ATP, but its role in the organism is more specific than that of ATP. CTP is used as the source of energy, and as a coenzyme in metabolic reactions like the synthesis of glycerophospholipids and glycosylation of proteins.; CTP is a substrate in the synthesis of RNA.; Cytidine 5'-(tetrahydrogen triphosphate) or CTP is a cytosine nucleotide containing three phosphate groups esterified to a ribose moiety at the 5' position. CTP is integral to the synthesis or mRNA, rRNA and tRNA through RNA polymerases. Cytidine triphosphate (CTP) is also critical to the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine via the enzyme CTP: phosphocholine cytidyltransferase. This reaction is the rate-limiting step in the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine.; Cytidine triphosphate is a pyrimidine nucleotide.
