EC 4.6.1.6     
Accepted name: cytidylate cyclase
Reaction: CTP = 3′,5′-cyclic CMP + diphosphate
Glossary: 3′,5′-cyclic CMP = cCMP
cytidylate = CMP
Other name(s): 3′,5′-cyclic-CMP synthase; cytidylyl cyclase; cytidyl cyclase; CTP diphosphate-lyase (cyclizing); pycC (gene name) (ambiguous)
Systematic name: CTP diphosphate-lyase (cyclizing; 3′,5′-cyclic-CMP-forming)
Comments: In bacteria and archaea the enzyme's product, cCMP, functions as a second messenger in bacterial immunity against viruses. The enzyme is synthesized following phage infection and activates immune effectors that execute an antiviral response.
