Chemical Information
DescriptiondUMP, also known as deoxyuridylate or deoxy-UMP, 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. dUMP is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). dUMP exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans. Within humans, dUMP participates in a number of enzymatic reactions. In particular, dUMP can be biosynthesized from dCMP through its interaction with the enzyme deoxycytidylate deaminase. In addition, dUMP can be biosynthesized from deoxyuridine; which is mediated by the enzyme thymidine kinase, cytosolic. In humans, dUMP is involved in pyrimidine metabolism. A pyrimidine 2'-deoxyribonucleoside 5'-monophosphate having uracil as the nucleobase. Outside of the human body, dUMP has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as breadnut tree seeds, sea-buckthornberries, sour cherries, black walnuts, and common oregano. This could make dUMP a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods.
