Abstract

The nucleotide coenzyme cytidine-5-diphospho-choline is highly folded. The CMP-5 parts of the molecules in the crystal structure are strongly linked by metal ligation and hydrogen bonds leaving the phosphoryl-choline residues relatively free. Cytidine-5-diphosphoric acid exists as a zwitterion with N31 protonated. The P−O bond lengths from the anhydride bridging oxygen in the pyrophosphate are significantly different.
