Class: carbohydrate_by_oxygen_replacement_modification

A carbohydrate_residue that is classified primarily by specification of oxygens that are replaced by other atoms. These include variations such as "dideoxy", "deoxy", and "amino" that distinguish the residue from the basic residue type. For example, GlcN is common shorthand for 2-deoxy-2-amino-glucose. Here, glucose is the basic sugar type and deoxy and amino are structural variations that specify the replacement of an oxygen with a nitrogen.
