TYMS (Thymidylate Synthetase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TYMS include timothy syndrome and brugada syndrome 3. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Cell Cycle, Mitotic. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and mRNA binding. Thymidylate synthase catalyzes the methylation of deoxyuridylate to deoxythymidylate using 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate (methylene-THF) as a cofactor. This function maintains the dTMP (thymidine-5-prime monophosphate) pool critical for DNA replication and repair. The enzyme has been of interest as a target for cancer chemotherapeutic agents. It is considered to be the primary site of action for 5-fluorouracil, 5-fluoro-2-prime-deoxyuridine, and some folate analogs. Expression of this gene and that of a naturally occuring antisense transcript rTSalpha (GeneID:55556) vary inversely when cell-growth progresses from late-log to plateau phase.
Contributes to the de novo mitochondrial thymidylate biosynthesis pathway. Thymidylate synthetase (EC 2. 1. 45) is an enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of deoxyuridine monophosphate (dUMP) to deoxythymidine monophosphate (dTMP). Thymidine is one of the nucleotides in DNA. With inhibition of TS, an imbalance of deoxynucleotides and increased levels of dUTP arise. Both cause DNA damage. The following reaction is catalyzed by thymidylate synthetase:.
