ChEBI
thymus nucleic acid
Note: (2007-11-05) A former name for deoxyribonucleic acid. It was so termed because the thymus gland was found to be a particularly rich source of nucleic acid of a type that was thought at the time to be characteristic of animal tissues and that was distinct from the type believed to be characteristic of plant tissues and known as 'yeast nucleic acid'. Cf. CHEBI:33697.
