Also found in: Dictionary
A saccharide unit or molecule containing the furan cyclic structure; specific examples are preceded by prefixes indicating the configuration, for example, fructofuranose, ribofuranose.
[furan + -ose(1)]
furanose /fu·ra·nose/ (fu´rah-nōs) any sugar containing the four-carbon furan ring structure; it is a cyclic form that ketoses and aldoses may take in solution.

It was also suggested that CH in the aromatic skeletal region due to lignin and CH in the furanose (or pyranose) region due to hemicellulose could be easily decomposed.
These results indicated that the degradation of CH in the aromatic skeletal region due to lignin and the degradation of CH in the furanose (or pyranose) region due to hemicellulose contributed to the yellowing of the wood samples.
For grasses, the mode of attachment seems to be highly conserved, with the acid group esterified to the primary hydroxyl formed at the C5 position when arabinose is in the furanose
The term "Locked Nucleic Acids" was coined by Exiqon to emphasize that the usual conformational freedom of the furanose
ring in standard nucleosides is restricted in LNA(TM) due to a methylene linker connecting the 2'-O position to the 4'-C position.
