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.

deoxyribose

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