Chemical Information
Name5-Thymidylic acid
Description5-Thymidylic acid, also known as TMP or thymidylate, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as pyrimidine 2'-deoxyribonucleoside monophosphates. These are pyrimidine nucleotides with a monophosphate group linked to the ribose moiety lacking a hydroxyl group at position 2. 5-Thymidylic acid is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). The neutral species of 5-Thymidylic acid (2'-deoxythymidine 5'-monophosphate). 5-Thymidylic acid exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans. Within humans, 5-thymidylic acid participates in a number of enzymatic reactions. In particular, 5-thymidylic acid and dihydrofolic acid can be biosynthesized from dUMP and 5,10-methylene-THF; which is mediated by the enzyme thymidylate synthase. In addition, 5-thymidylic acid can be converted into dTDP; which is catalyzed by the enzyme thymidylate synthase. In humans, 5-thymidylic acid is involved in pyrimidine metabolism. Outside of the human body, 5-Thymidylic acid has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as common buckwheats, corn salad, garden cress, squashberries, and star fruits. This could make 5-thymidylic acid a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
