Best Answer

The difference between a bisphosphate and diphosphate is very simple.

For a diphosphate, the 2 phosphate groups in the compound are directly attached to one another.

For a bisphosphate, the 2 phosphate groups in the compound are attached to different atoms on the compound, meaning that they are not attached to one another.

Is ribose part of adenosine diphosphate?

Yes, as Adenosine Diphosphate (ADP) is the product of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). The only difference between the two is ADP has on less phosphate group. Both ADP and ATP are composed of one pentose sugar ribose, 2 or 3 phosphate groups, and adenine.

Is there any difference between biphosphate and bisphosphate?

In biphosphate, two molecules of phosphate are attached through each other to the SAME CARBON atom. Difficult to find this kind of molecule.Whereas, in bisphophate, two molecules of phosphate group are linked at two DIFFERENT CARBON atom. ex: Fructose 1,6-bisphosphate, where at C1 and C6, each Carbon atom bonded to it.
