Definition

Protein involved in the synthesis of deoxyribonucleotides, the basic repeating units in DNA. Deoxyribonucleotides consist of a purine or a pyrimidine base bonded to deoxyribose, which in turn is bound to a phosphate group. They are synthesised by reduction of ribonucleoside diphosphates.
