some say its riboluse biphosphate
and some say ribulose bisphosphate
bi- and bis- means the same. Bi- is used for smaller ligands, while bis- is for larger ligands.
The sugar should be spelled ribulose. I don’t think there is an acceptable alternative (Jack would know for sure, he’s a plant phys guy).
yeah, you’re right, I didn’t notice the misspell. And I was wondering, what was the difference 😀
that really helped
but that misspell was by mistake not on purpose.
actually, I wasn’t really correct. The prefix should not be bi-, but di-, thus the first name is wrong.
But my I was told that bi and di mean the same.
Could u please elaborate on this part.I really want this confusion to end once and for all.
I think it should be either di- or bis-
