a nucleoside of DNA.

thy·mi·dine (dThd),

(thī'mi-dēn),
1-(2-Deoxyribosyl)thymine; one of the four major nucleosides in DNA (the others being deoxyadenosine, deoxycytidine, and deoxyguanosine).

thymidine

/thy·mi·dine/ (thi´mĭ-dēn) thymine linked to ribose, a rarely occurring base in rRNA and tRNA; frequently used incorrectly to denote deoxythymidine. Symbol T.

thymidine

(thī′mĭ-dēn′)
n.
A nucleoside, C10H14N2O5, composed of thymine and deoxyribose.

thymidine (dThd)

[thī′mədēn]
one of the four major nucleosides in DNA. It is formed by the condensation of thymine with deoxyribose.

Thymidylate synthase (TS) is a 36-kDa dimeric protein that catalyzes methylation of deoxyuridine monophosphate (BUMP) to deoxythymidine monophosphate (dTMP), using the reduced folate 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate as the methyl donor (53, 54).
1% Triton X-100 (Nacalai Tesque, Kyoto, Japan); 2% formamide; 10 pmol of primer pairs; 200 [micro]mol each of deoxyadenosine triphosphate, deoxyguanosine triphosphate, deoxycytidine triphosphate, and deoxythymidine triphosphate; and 2.
Therefore, T vectors possessing two 3' overhanging deoxythymidines have been created using different approaches, either by tailing a single deoxythymidine to the 3' end of linear and blunt ended plasmids (2) or by cutting a modified plasmid with selected restriction enzymes such as Xcm I, to generate linear plasmids with single overhang deoxythymidine at both 3' ends (3-8).
The amplification solution consisted of the following: 1 [micro]mol/L of each consensus primer; 200 [micro]mol/L each of deoxyadenosine triphosphate, deoxycytidine triphosphate, and deoxyguanosine triphosphate; and 140 [micro]mol/L of deoxythymidine triphosphate.
The hydrolyzed samples were then injected into the HPLC and the 5-methyldeoxycytidine and deoxythymidine fractions were collected.
Radioactivity of methyldeoxycytidine and deoxythymidine was measured more specifically after DNA hydrolysis and HPLC analysis (Fig.
