Monosaccharides articles from across Nature Portfolio

Monosaccharides are small molecule carbohydrates that contain only a single six-membered ring of carbon and oxygen, but often exist in equilibrium with a five-membered ring and straight chain form. Ring monosaccharides such as galactose and glucose can serve as fuel for cellular metabolism. They also form the repeat units of polysaccharides.
