Sheep anti cytosine deaminase antibody
recognizes cytosine deaminase, also known as cytosine aminohydrolase. Cytosine deaminase is a 158 amino acid ~18 kDa enzyme involved in the conversion of cytosine to uracil. Sheep anti Human cytosine deaminase antibody recognizes the native antigen in ELISA and has been successfully used for detection of the enzyme by western blotting (Fuerer and Iggo 2004
