aglycon, aglycone
1. The nonsugar component of a glycoside molecule that results from hydrolysis of a molecule.
2. A noncarbohydrate group, usually an alcohol or phenol, combined with a sugar to form a glycoside (any compound containing a carbohydrate molecule [sugar], particularly any such natural product in plants).

It can be converted by cleavage of the molecule into a sugar and a nonsugar component.

2. Living without eating or consuming any sweets.
Any compound containing boric acid and glycerol; used primarily as an antiseptic.
To remove the glycerol cryopreservative medium from frozen red blood cells and replace it with an isotonic solution for transfusion.
An ester of two fatty acids and glycerol.

An ester is a class of organic compounds corresponding to the inorganic salts and formed from an organic acid and an alcohol.

An absence of blood glucose.
A glycerol molecule with one, two, or three fatty acid tails attached to a glycerol backbone; one of the fats or oils.

These different types are called monoglycerides, diglycerides, and triglycerides, respectively. Glycerides are important fat storage molecules.

1. A clear, colorless, syrupy liquid; administered rectally as a laxative, orally as a diuretic to reduce intraocular pressure, and orally as a demulcent in cough preparations and in other pharmaceutical preparations.
2. A thick, sweet, odorless, colorless, or pale yellow liquid.

2. A three-carbon compound with three hydroxyl groups.

A component of fats and oils.

A sweet-tasting crystalline non-essential amino acid, that is the principal amino acid occurring in sugar cane.

The simplest amino acid found in protein, it is derived from the alkaline hydrolysis of gelatin and used in biochemical research and medicine.
