nucleoside triphosphate

Also found in: Wikipedia.

nu·cle·o·side tri·phos·phate

a nucleoside in which the H of one of the ribose hydroxyls (usually the 5') is replaced by a triphosphoric group, -PO(OH)-O-PO(OH)-O-PO(OH)2 or the corresponding conjugate base, for example, adenosine triphosphate.

Basically, this works by incorporating a small amount of UTP in the PCR master mixes alongside TTP and the other three usual nucleoside triphosphates. During amplification, a small number of these UTP substitute in for TTP, resulting in all amplicons having at least a few uradine nucleotides incorporated.
