Cytidine deaminases are a superfamily, which includes Cytidine deaminase, nucleoside deaminase, deoxycytidylate deaminase and riboflavin deaminase.
They are enzymes that de-aminate cytidine to uridine and play an important role in a variety of pathways from bacteria to man. Ancestral members of this superfamily were only able to de-aminate cytidine of mononucleotides or nucleosides.
The cytidine deaminase super-family can be classified into RNA-editing deaminases, cytidine deaminases, nucleoside deaminases and deoxycytidylate deaminases, based on substrate specificity and homology of the active-site sequence [26].

  Olympus MIC-D: Polarized Light Gallery - Cytidine
Cytosine, the organic base of cytidine, was first isolated from the thymus of a calf in 1894 and was synthesized in the laboratory in 1903.
As a crystal, cytidine appears as a white or almost white powder and is available in a chemically synthesized regular or radiolabeled form.
The enzyme is used by geneticists and gene therapists for cutting and splicing DNA and RNA segments, and may explain somatic mutations and evolution by viral and bacterial vectors.

Rogers, J. and Joyce, G.F. "The effect of cytidine on the strucure and function of an RNA ligase ribozyme"
Cytidine was introduced to the cytidine-free ribozyme in a combinatorial fashion and additional rounds of in vitro evolution were carried out to allow the molecule to adapt to this added component.
The improved rate of the cytidine-containing ribozyme was the result of 12 mutations, including seven added cytidines, that remodeled the internal bulge loops located adjacent to the three-way junction and stabilized the peripheral stem regions.

 AllRefer.com - cytosine (Biochemistry) - Encyclopedia
Combined with the sugar ribose in glycosidic linkage, cytosine forms a derivative called cytidine (a nucleoside), which in turn can be phosphorylated with from one to three phosphoric acid groups, yielding the three nucleotides CMP (cytidine monophosphate), CDP (cytidine diphosphate), and CTP (cytidine triphosphate).
CTP acts as a coenzyme in both carbohydrate and lipid metabolism; it can readily donate one of its phosphate groups to adenosine diphosphate (ADP) to form adenosine triphosphate (ATP), an extremely important intermediate in the transfer of chemical energy in living systems.
CTP is the source of the cytidine found in ribonucleic acid (RNA) and deoxycytidine triphosphate (dCTP) is the source of the deoxycytidine in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).

 Smith Lab research - Structural Analysis of ARP family members
Given the that the ARP family have homologous zinc-dependent cytidine deaminase domains (CD) yet do not have common mRNAs or DNAs substrates, an important question to address is how do these enzymes distinguish where to deaminate cytidine or deoxycytidine.
CDD1 belongs to the tetrameric class of cytidine deaminases with a quaternary fold nearly identical to that of the tetrameric cytidine deaminase from B.
Comparative modeling of APOBEC-1-related proteins suggested that the domain interface between subunits influences the positioning of ribose binding loops as in cytidine deaminases and that a variably sized 'flap' at the catalytic site regulates access based on substrate size, which was corroborated in deaminase and RNA editing functional assays.
