Dictionary » T » Thymine



(Science: biochemistry) pyrimidine base found in dNA (in place of uracil of rNA). A base found in DNA (but not in RNA) and derived from pyrimidine; pairs with adenine.One of the four bases of a nucleotide that are found in DNA. Thymine is paired with adenine in DNA sequences and is replaced by uracil in mRNA.

Gene deletion

... without the supplement contrary to the WT). And they even used system where they could remove the selection gene easily. The strain was uracil or thymine dependent and they used some gene recovering this. Thus after transformation it was able to grow without U/T (I'm not sure which one). However, ...
