xylose

 [zi´lōs]
a pentose found in mucopolysaccharides of connective tissue, sometimes the urine, and vegetable gum. d-Xylose is used in a diagnostic test of intestinal absorption (see malabsorption syndrome).

xy·lose (Xy, Xyl),

(zī'lōs),
An aldopentose, isomeric with ribose, obtained by fermentation or hydrolysis of naturally occurring carbohydrate substances, for example, in wood fiber. An important dietary component for herbivores. The d-isomer is also known as wood or beechwood sugar.

xylose

(zī′lōs′)
n.
A crystalline monosaccharide, C5H10O5, that is a component of most hemicelluloses in plants. Also called wood sugar.

xy·lose
