Ribose (ɹˈaɪbəʊs, ɹˈaɪbəɹʊs), primarily seen as D-ribose, is an aldopentose — a monosaccharide containing five carbon atoms, and including an aldehyde functional group in its linear form. It has the chemical formula C5H10O5, and was discovered in 1905 by Phoebus Levene.
As a component of the RNA that is used for genetic transcription, ribose is critical to living creatures. It is related to deoxyribose, which is a component of DNA. It is also a component of ATP, NADH, and several other chemicals that are critical to metabolism.
D-Ribose has the same configuration at its penultimate carbon atom as D-glyceraldehyde.
