A nucleoside, C9H12N2O6, that is composed of uracil and ribose, is a component of RNA, and plays a role in regulating many physiological processes.

uridine

The nucleoside of URACIL found in RNA and other NUCELOTIDES.

uridine

a molecule formed from a combination of a ribose sugar and the RNA base URACIL. Further addition of a phosphate group produces the NUCLEOTIDE.
