Application

Thymidine (dT) is a pyrimidine deoxyriboside (deoxynucleoside) that upon sequential phosphorylation to deoxythymidine triphospate (dTTP) is used to synthesize DNA and the T-loop of transfer RNA. Thymidine is as substrate of Thymidine kinase EC 2.7.1.21 which phosphorylates the nucleoside with a phosphate derived from ATP. dT may be used to study the distribution, specificity and kinetics of a family of thymidine kinase(s).
