The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the formationof CTP from UTP with the concomitant deamination of glutamine toglutamate. This protein is the rate-limiting enzyme in thesynthesis of cytosine nucleotides, which play an important role invarious metabolic processes and provide the precursors necessaryfor the synthesis of RNA and DNA. Cancer cells that exhibitincreased cell proliferation also exhibit an increased activity ofthis encoded protein. Thus, this protein is an attractive targetfor selective chemotherapy. Three alternatively spliced transcriptvariants encoding the same protein have been described for thisgene.
