As it turns out, ribosome was the word I was after. The other word that I was afraid I was confusing it with was "riboflavin", a.k.a. vitamin B2, which is essential to life because it makes your pee yellow.

My vulnerability to the all-pervasive cereal advertising industry in lieu of any kind of actual medical training is regrettable. But still, I can walk the walk and talk the chalk or something like that when I have to. Check out this picture from a talk I gave earlier this year on tuberous sclerosis:
