C10H14N2O5 A nucleoside derived from deoxyribonucleic acid; essential growth factor for certain microorganisms in mediums lacking vitamin B12 and folic acid.



a natural organic compound, a nucleoside consisting of the pyrimidine base thymine and the carbohydrate deoxyri-bose. Thymidine is made up of acicular crystals that are readily soluble in water. With respect to chemical properties, it is a weak base. Thymidine is present in all living cells as a constituent of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). Thymidine tagged with radioactive tritium is extensively used in laboratories to study DNA biosynthesis and the repair of DNA after injury.
