bromouracil meaning

Pronunciation:   "bromouracil" in a sentence
  • [Medicine]
    n : a mutagenic uracil derivative C4H3N2O2Br that is an analog of thymine and pairs readily with adenine and sometimes with guanine during bacterial or phage DNA synthesis

Examples

  1. TDG can also remove uracil and 5-bromouracil from mispairings with guanine.
  2. One of the most common base analogs is 5-bromouracil ( 5BU ), the abnormal base found in the mutagenic nucleotide analog BrdU . When a nucleotide containing 5-bromouracil is incorporated into the DNA, it is most likely to pair with adenine; however, it can spontaneously shift into another isomer which pairs with a different nucleobase, guanine.
