Application

Thymidine (dT) is a pyrimidine deoxyriboside (deoxynucleoside) that upon sequential phosphorylation to deoxythymidine triphospate (dTTP) is used to synthesize DNA and the T-loop of transfer RNA. Thymidine is as substrate of Thymidine kinase EC 2.7.1.21 which phosphorylates the nucleoside with a phosphate derived from ATP. dT may be used to study the distribution, specificity and kinetics of a family of thymidine kinase(s).

Chlamydia trachomatis is a sexually transmitted obligate intracellular pathogen that causes inflammatory reactive arthritis, spondylitis, psoriasiform dermatitis, and conjunctivitis in some individuals after genital infection. The immunologic basis for this inflammatory response in susceptible hosts is poorly understood. As ZAP-70(W163C)...
