Human thymidine kinase 1 (TKI) is a cellular enzyme which serves to phosphorylate thymidine to create deoxythymidine triphosphate (dTTP), a precursor for DNA metabolism: Intriguingly, other studies have indicated that deficiency of J TKI causes increased cellular sensitivity to a diverse range of DNA damaging ',agents. This indicates a role of the enzyme in DNA repair processes. TKI could 'affect DNA repair through one of two hypothesised mechanisms:(a) through 'preferential repair, that is, the accelerated repair of actively transcribed genes compared to bulk DNA
