Ribose is an aldopentose monosaccharide that is phosphorylated into D-ribose 5-phosphate by ribokinase. Ribose-5-phosphate supports the biosynthesis of tryptophan and histidine and is a component of the pentose phosphate pathway.
This D-ribose has been qualified for use as a supplement in cell culture.
