We show here that deoxycytidine deaminase (DCD)-deficient mutants of Escherichia coli are hypersensitive to killing by exogenous cytidine, adenosine, or guanosine, whereas wild-type cells are not. This hypersensitivity is reversed by exogenous thymidine. The mechanism likely involves the allosteric regulation
