Thymidine diphosphate, abbreviated dTDP, is a nucleoside diphosphate. It is an ester of pyrophosphoric acid with the nucleoside thymidine. dTDP consists of the pyrophosphate group, the pentose sugar ribose, and the nucleobase thymine. Unlike the other deoxyribonucleotides, thymidine diphosphate does not contain the "deoxy" prefix in its name.[1]
