hexose

[hek′sōs]
Etymology: Gk, hex, six, glykys, sweet
a monosaccharide that contains six carbon atoms in the molecule. Glucose, mannose, and fructose are the principal hexoses found in nature, as well as being the principal absorbable end products of carbohydrate digestion.

hexose monophosphate shunt
metabolic pathway starting from glucose-6-phosphate, and leading to the production of NADPH for reductive syntheses, ribose sugars for nucleic acid synthesis and for the diversification and rearrangement of sugars.
