deoxyribose

 [de-ok″sĭ-ri´bōs]
an aldopentose found in deoxyribonucleic acid, deoxyribonucleotides, and deoxyribonucleosides.

de·ox·y·ri·bose

(dē-oks'ē-rī'bōs),
A deoxypentose, 2-deoxy-d-ribose being the most common example, occurring in DNA and responsible for its name.

deoxyribose

/de·oxy·ri·bose/ (-ri´bōs) a deoxypentose found in deoxyribonucleic acids (DNA), deoxyribonucleotides, and deoxyribonucleosides.

deoxyribose

(dē-ŏk′sē-rī′bōs′)
n.
A pentose sugar, C5H10O4, that is a constituent of DNA and differs from ribose in having a hydrogen atom instead of a hydroxyl group on one of its carbon atoms.

deoxyribose

[dē·ok′sē·rī′bōs]
ribose that has been transformed into a deoxy sugar, found in deoxyribonucleic acids (DNA). Also known as 2-deoxyribose referring to the specific carbon atom that has been reduced. Compare ribose.

de·ox·y·ri·bose

deoxyribose

A sugar, part of the ‘backbone’ of the DNA double helix, deoxyribonucleic acid. In RNA, the equivalent sugar is ribose.

deoxyribose

a pentose sugar which is the carbohydrate constituent of deoxyribonucleic acid (see DNA).

deoxyribose

an aldopentose found in deoxyribonucleic acid, deoxyribonucleotides and deoxyribonucleosides.
