The first total synthesis of Ch HF-PS, a cell wall trisaccharide repeating unit of B. cereus, is reported. The synthetic trisaccharide is appended with an aminopropyl linker at the reducing end to allow for conjugation to proteins and microarrays. The convergent synthesis involves transformation of d-mannose into an orthogonally protected rare AAT sugar(More)
N-glycosylation, the covalent attachment of glycans to select protein target Asn residues, is a post-translational modification performed by all three domains of life. In the halophilic archaea Haloferax volcanii, in which understanding of this universal protein-processing event is relatively well-advanced, genes encoding the components of the archaeal(More)
The first total synthesis of the phosphorylated trisaccharide repeating unit of Providencia alcalifaciens O22 is reported. The trisaccharide contains rare deoxyamino sugar AAT at the reducing end and d-glyceramide 2-phosphate at the other end. The efficient synthesis involves one-pot assembly of trisaccharide and late-stage phosphorylation as key steps.
Bacterial glycans contain rare, exclusively bacterial monosaccharides that are frequently linked to pathogenesis and essentially absent from human cells. Therefore, bacterial glycans are intriguing molecular targets. However, systematic discovery of bacterial glycoproteins is hampered by the presence of rare deoxy amino sugars, which are refractory to(More)
