FUNCTIONCatalyzes the reductive methylation of 2'-deoxyuridine-5'- monophosphate (dUMP) to 2'-deoxythymidine-5'-monophosphate (dTMP) while utilizing 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate (mTHF) as the methyl donor, and NADPH and FADH(2) as the reductant.
CATALYTIC ACTIVITY Reaction=(6R)-5,10-methylene-5,6,7,8-tetrahydrofolate + dUMP + H(+) + NADPH = (6S)-5,6,7,8-tetrahydrofolate + dTMP + NADP(+); Xref=Rhea:RHEA:29043, ChEBI:CHEBI:15378, ChEBI:CHEBI:15636, ChEBI:CHEBI:57453, ChEBI:CHEBI:57783, ChEBI:CHEBI:58349, ChEBI:CHEBI:63528, ChEBI:CHEBI:246422; EC=;
