lacks a hydroxyl group which can be seen from the reaction to D-apiose (R03577 in KEGG) which is a normal dehydrogenation of the primary alcohol. The actual structure can be confirmed by a search for apiitol in Brenda. Moreover, stereochemistry is absent although the name clearly indicates that it should be the D-isomer.

Entry MC001431 in BioMeta has now the correct structure:
