Found Ribose 29 times.

Displaying results 1 to 10.

1. 7-methyl guanosine
A guanosine ribonucleotide (has the nitrogenous base guanine attached to the sugar ribose ) which has a methyl group attached to the 7th ring atom of the guanine (a nitrogen atom). These are found at the capped 5'-ends of eukaryotic mRNA .

2. Adenosine
A ribonucleoside which consists of the nitrogenous base adenine linked to the sugar ribose .

3. Adenosine diphosphate (ADP)
ADP is a molecule which consists of the nitrogenous base adenine linked to the sugar ribose and which has a chain of two phosphate groups attached to the ribose in a linear fashion. ADP is used as an intermediate throughoug glycolysis . ATP hydrolyzes to produce ADP and free energy.

4. Adenosine diphosphate (ADP)
Lower energy form of ATP, having two (instead of the three in ATP) phosphhate groups attached to the adenine base and ribose sugar.

5. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
ATP is a molecule which consists of the nitrogenous base adenine linked to the sugar ribose and which has a chain of three phosphate groups attached to the ribose in a linear fashion. ATP is present in all living cells and serves as an energy source for many metabolic processes; energy is released when ATP is hydrolyzed into ADP . ATP is required for RNA synthesis since it is a direct precursor. It is the single most important molecule in all living things since it serves as the currency for energy in biological systems.

6. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP)
A common form in which energy is stored in living systems; consists of a nucleotide (with ribose sugar) with three phosphate groups. The energy coin of the cell.

7. Arabinosyladenine (araA)
An antibiotic used to treat viral encephalitis . Its structure is derived from the purine adenosine by replacing the simple sugar ribose with the simple sugar arabinose .

8. Arabinosylcytosine (araC)
An antibiotic which acts by blocking DNA synthesis. Its structure is derived from the pyrimidine cytosine by replacing the simple sugar ribose with the simple sugar arabinose .

9. Cytidine (cytosine riboside)
A cytosine ribonucleoside (where the nitrogenous base cytosine is linked to the sugar ribose ) which plays an important role in the metabolism of all living things.

10. Cytidine monophosphate (CMP, cytidylic acid)
A cytosine ribonucleotide (where the nitrogenous base cytosine is linked to the sugar ribose and a phosphate group) that helps make glycoprotein s (a protein linked to a sugar or polysaccharide ).
