This allows the phosphorylation of deoxythymidine - a precursor for deoxythymidine triphosphate which is used in DNA synthesis.
Folate is an essential nutrient acting as methyl donor for conversion of deoxyuridine monophosphate (dUMP)to deoxythymidine monophosphate required for DNA synthesis and repair.
In folate pathway mechanism deoxythymidine monophosphate (dTMP) (dTMP) is produced from deoxyuridine monophosphate (dUMP) by oxidation of tetrahydrofolate to dihydrofolate catalysed by dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) (Hyde 2005; Abali et al.
Inhibition of replication and cytopathic effect of human T cell lymphotropic virus type III/lymphadenopathy-associated virus by 3'-azido-3' deoxythymidine in vitro.
For example, the first G peak is twice as tall as the first T peak, indicating that 2 consecutive deoxyguanosine triphosphates (underlined) were incorporated, whereas only one deoxythymidine triphosphate (underlined) was incorporated; 1X and 2X lines represent peak heights because of single or double base incorporation events, respectively.
In this reaction, one carbon group of the 5,10-MTHF is transferred to a molecule called deoxyuridine monophosphate (dUMP), resulting in the formation of deoxythymidine monophosphate (dTMP) and dihydrofolate (DHF).
