Uridine Anhydrous N/H
Uridine is one of the four basic components of ribonucleic acid (RNA); the other three are adenosine, guanosine, and cytidine. Upon digestion of foods containing RNA, uridine is released from RNA and is absorbed intact in the gut. Uridine plays a role in the glycolysis pathway of galactose.
Uridine is a nucleoside, contains an uracil attached to a ribose ring (known as a ribofuranose) via a β-N1-glycosidic bond. It is an organic compound of the pyrimidine family, that occurs as one of the four bases coding genetic information in the polynucleotide chain of RNA.
