What is Pyrimidines?

Pyrimidines are biologically very important heterocycles and represent by far the most ubiquitous members of the diazine family with uracil and thymine being constituents of ribonucleic acid (RNA) and deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA).

Is Pyrimidine a compound or not?

Pyrimidine is an aromatic heterocyclic organic compound similar to pyridine. Functionalized pyrimidines have been considered to be privileged structures and have been incorporated into a wide variety of pharmaceutical agents. In 2010, the reported biological activity which these pyrimidine-based scaffolds possessed spanned the gamut. Many pyrmidine derivatives were synthesized and evaluated as potential cancer treatments or preventatives. Adenine (A) and guanine (G) are purines, and cytosine (C), thymine (T), and urasil (U) are pyrimidines. These are the most important parts in nucleic acid.

Pyrimidine compounds are a very important class of substances in life activities, which are widely present in humans and organisms. For example, among the five most common nitrogen-containing basic components in nucleic acids, there are three pyrimidine-containing structures, namely uracil, Cytosine and thymine. Pyrimidine compounds have received widespread attention because of their strong biological activity.
