TYMP is a gene that encodes for the enzyme thymidine phosphorylase. The TYMP gene is known as ECGF1 and MNGIE due to its role in MNGIE syndrome; the TYMP gene contains 10 exons spanning more than 4.3 kb. TYMP encodes for the enzyme thymidine phosphorylase. TYMP and thymidine phosphorylase are associated with angiogenesis, growth of endothelial cells, mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalomyopathy. Thymidine phosphorylase is angiogenic growth factor which promotes angiogenesis in vivo and stimulates the in vitro growth of a variety of endothelial cells. Thymidine phosphorylase has a restricted target cell specificity acting only on endothelial cells, hence its alternative name of ECGF1; because it limits glial cell proliferation, thymidine phosphorylase is known as gliostatin. Thymidine phosphorylase activity in leukocytes from mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalomyopathy patients was less than 5 percent of controls, indicating that loss-of-function mutations in TYMP cause MNGIE.
