This bot has detected that this page contains an image, Image:Ribofuranose-2D-skeletal.png, in a raster format. A replacement is available as a Scalable vector graphic (SVG) at File:Ribofuranose.svg. If the replacement image is suitable please edit the article to use the vector version. Scalable vector graphics should be used in preference to raster for images that can easily represented in a vector graphic format. If this bot is in error, you may leave a bug report at its talk page Thanks SVnaGBot1 (talk) 09:26, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

I am unsure how to edit this posting but some of the information is incorrect. The second furanose picture states the the way bond depicts both D and L sugars. This is wrong. D and L is calculated by figuring out the stereochemistry on the chiral carbon that is farthest away from the anomeric center. The wavy line depicts a mixture of both alpha and beta sugars. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:06, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
