Synonyms: a deoxynucleoside
|Superclasses:||a nucleic acid component → a nucleoside|
Nucleosides are glycosylamines consisting of a nucleobase bound to a ribose or 2'-deoxyribose sugar via a β-glycosidic linkage. The nucleosides are called ribonucleosides when the sugar is ribose, and deoxyribonucleosides when it is 2'-deoxyribose.
When nucleosides are phosphorylated on the sugar's primary alcohol group, the resulting phosphonucleosides are called nucleotides.
