Building block of DNA. The more DNA is made, the more thymidine is consumed by the cell to make the DNA. Laboratorians use tritiated thymidine to measure how much DNA synthesis is occurring; the more radioactive the DNA, the more tritiated thymidine is being consumed and the more DNA is being made.
A nucleoside form of thymine.
One of the four basic nucleotides that comprise DNA. Tides-The daily, predictable rise and fall of bodies of water, most notably the oceans, caused by the moon's gravity pulling on the Earth.
a nucleoside component of DNA; composed of thymine and deoxyribose
A nucleoside combining the base thymine with D-ribose. One of the building blocks of DNA.
A nucleoside consisting of thymine linked to deoxyribose.
A nucleoside present in DNA but absent in RNA.
The nucleoside having thymine as its base.
A chemical compound found in DNA. Also used as treatment for mucositis.
Thymidine (more precisely called deoxythymidine can also be labelled deoxyribosylthymine, and thymine deoxyriboside) is a chemical compound, more precisely a pyrimidine deoxynucleoside. Deoxythymidine is the DNA nucleoside T, which pairs with deoxyadenosine (A) in double-stranded DNA.
