dU

(2'-deoxyuridine-5'-monophosphate)



Smiles represantation:
[H]O[C@@]1([H])C([H])([H])[C@@]([H])(O[C@]1([H])C([H])([H])OP(O)(O)=O)n1c([H])c([H])c(=O)n([H])c1=O


Cysteine spontaneously loses an amine group, which is replaced by a keto group at the C4-atom. This reaction occurs spontaneously and all the time, and is the reason why T is used in DNA. This way, dU and T can be distinguished from each other.
