Cis-syn thymine is classified as a cis-syn Cyclobutane Pyrimidine Dimer (CPD) of two thymine bases, and is primarily used in studies of UV-induced DNA damage and associated repair mechanisms. In the cell, cis-syn thymine dimer DNA lesions are primarily formed when two adjacent thymidine bases are irradiated by UV light (most commonly from sunlight). The result is the generation of a dimer in the form of a cyclobutane (1). This bulky adduct lesion causes large structural distortion in the double helix. While not mutagenic, they act as effective replication blocks; as such, they are potentially lethal to the cell (2). This lesion is repaired via one of two repair DNA repair mechanisms: direct reversal with the enzyme photolyase (which cleaves the dimer) (3) or by the nucleotide excision repair (NER) mechanism (4).

Oligos synthesized with cis-syn thymine dimer are stable for greater than 6 month when stored frozen, protected from light and preferably in an ethanol precipitated dried state. Reconstituted oligos should be preferably stored frozen in aliquots to avoid multiple freeze thaw cycles.
