Nuc --> nucleoside

(Science: biochemistry) purine or pyrimidine base linked glycosidically to ribose or deoxyribose, but lacking the phosphate residues that would make it a nucleotide.

ribonucleosides are adenosine, guanosine, cytidine and uridine. Deoxyribosides are deoxyadenosine, deoxyguanosine, deoxycytidine and deoxythymidine (the latter is almost universally referred to as thymidine).
