Common NameThymine
DescriptionThymine, also known as 5-methyluracil, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as hydroxypyrimidines. These are organic compounds containing a hydroxyl group attached to a pyrimidine ring. Pyrimidine is a 6-membered ring consisting of four carbon atoms and two nitrogen centers at the 1- and 3- ring positions. Thymine is an extremely weak basic (essentially neutral) compound (based on its pKa). Thymine exists in all living species, ranging from bacteria to humans. Within humans, thymine participates in a number of enzymatic reactions. In particular, thymine and deoxyribose 1-phosphate can be biosynthesized from thymidine through its interaction with the enzyme thymidine phosphorylase. In addition, thymine can be converted into dihydrothymine; which is mediated by the enzyme dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase [nadp(+)]. A pyrimidine nucleobase that is uracil in which the hydrogen at position 5 is replaced by a methyl group. In humans, thymine is involved in the metabolic disorder called ump synthase deficiency (orotic aciduria). Outside of the human body, Thymine has been detected, but not quantified in, several different foods, such as peanuts, breakfast cereals, common beets, black mulberries, and winged beans. This could make thymine a potential biomarker for the consumption of these foods. Thymine is a potentially toxic compound. Thymine, with regard to humans, has been found to be associated with several diseases such as thymidine treatment, periodontal probing depth, colorectal cancer, and temporomandibular joint disorder; thymine has also been linked to the inborn metabolic disorder beta-ureidopropionase deficiency.
