arabinose

A pentose monosaccharide that occurs in both D- and L- configurations. D-arabinose is the 2-epimer of D-ribose, ie. differs from D-ribose by having the opposite configuration at carbon 2. D-arabinose occurs inter alia in the polysaccharide arabinogalactan, a neutral pectinof the cell wall of plants, and in the metabolites cytosine arabinoside and adenine arabinoside. ...

Arabinose

Arabinose is an aldopentose – a monosaccharide containing five carbon atoms, and including an aldehyde (CHO) functional group. For biosynthetic reasons, most saccharides are almost always more abundant in nature as the `D`-form, or structurally analogous to D-glyceraldehyde. However, L-arabinose is in fact more common than D-arabinose in natur.....
