What is Cytidine？
Cytidine (symbol C or Cyd) is a nucleoside molecule that is formed when cytosine is attached to a ribose ring (also known as a ribofuranose) via a β-N1-glycosidic bond. Cytidine is a component of RNA. It is a white water-soluble solid. which is only slightly soluble in ethanol.
Cytosine nucleoside constitutes one of the pyrimidine nucleosides of nucleic acids. Made up of cytosine (the base part) and ribose (the sugar part). It is formed through the hydrolysis of ribonucleic acid. When used with nitrous acid, uridine (pyrimidine nucleoside) can be formed.
Dietary sources of cytidine include foods with high RNA (ribonucleic acid) content,such as organ meats, brewer’s yeast, as well as pyrimidine-rich foods such as beer. During digestion, RNA-rich foods are broken-down into ribosyl pyrimidines (cytidine and uridine), which are absorbed intact.In humans, dietary cytidine is converted into uridine, which is probably the compound behind cytidine’s metabolic effects.

What is the function of cytidine?
In addition to its role as a pyrimidine component of RNA, cytidine has been found to control neuronal-glial glutamate cycling, with supplementation decreasing midfrontal/cerebral glutamate/glutamine levels. As such, cytidine has generated interest as a potential glutamatergic antidepressant drug.
