thymidylate synthase activity

Known as: methylenetetrahydrofolate:dUMP C-methyltransferase activity, 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate:dUMP C-methyltransferase activity, dTMP synthase activity 
Catalysis of the reaction: 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate + dUMP = 7,8-dihydrofolate + thymidylate. [EC:2.1.1.45, RHEA:12107]
