Despite the importance of the microbiota in human physiology, the molecular bases that govern the interactions between these commensal bacteria and their host remain poorly understood. We recently reported that sulfatases play a key role in the adaptation of a major human commensal bacterium, Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron, to its host (Benjdia, A., Martens,(More)
Metabolic glycan labeling has recently emerged as a very powerful method for studying cell-surface glycans, which has applications that range from imaging glycans in living multicellular organisms, such as zebrafish or mice, to the identification of metastasis-associated cell-surface sialoglycoproteins. This strategy relies on the cellular biosynthetic(More)
The specificity of recombinant (2-->3)-alpha-sialyltransferase (ST3Gal-III), expressed in baculovirus-infected insect cells, has been determined with various oligosaccharide acceptors and sugar-nucleotide donors using a fluorescence based assay. Recombinant ST3Gal-III tagged with a polyhistidine tail was immobilized on Ni(2+)-NTA-Agarose as an active enzyme(More)
A series of C-glycosyl ethylphosphonophosphate analogues of UDP-Glc, UDP-Gal, UDP-GlcNAc and GDP-Fuc were synthesized from the corresponding C-glycosyl ethylphosphonic acids. Analogues were obtained as alpha-anomers through either diastereoselective photo-induced radical addition of glycosyl bromides (D-Glc, D-Gal and L-Fuc) to diethyl vinylphosphonate, or(More)
The 3-sulfated Lewis(a) pentasaccharide was synthesized on multimeric-based polyethylene glycol support. Coupling of O-(2,3,4,6-tetra-O-acetyl-beta-D-galactopyranosyl)-(1-->3)-4,6-di-O-acetyl-2-deoxy-2-phthalimido-beta-D-glucopyranosyl trichloroacetimidate with (2,6-di-O-acetyl-beta-D-galactopyranosyl)-(1-->4)-(2,3,6-tri-O-acetyl-beta-D-glucopyranoside)(More)
Currently, identification of pathogenic bacteria present at very low concentration requires a preliminary culture-based enrichment step. Many research efforts focus on the possibility to shorten this pre-enrichment step which is needed to reach the minimal number of cells that allows efficient identification. Rapid microbiological controls are a real public(More)
The sulfated pentasaccharide benzyl O-(3-O-sulfo-beta-D-galactopyranosyl)-(1-->3)-O-[(alpha-L-fucopyranosyl)-(1-->4)]-O-(2-acetamido-2-deoxy-beta-D-glucopyranosyl)-(1-->3)-O-(beta-D-galactopyranosyl)-(1-->4)-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside sodium salt was synthesized using a chemo-enzymatic approach. Lacto-N-tetraose, obtained from two disaccharides(More)
Pairs of the partially protected glycosides benzyl 4,6-O-benzylidene-beta-D-galactopyranoside, benzyl 2,3-di-O-benzyl-beta-D-galactopyranoside, benzyl 2,6-di-O-benzyl-alpha-D-galactopyranoside, and benzyl 2,3-di-O-benzyl-alpha-D-glucopyranoside were treated with equimolar proportions of Bu2SnO in benzene in the conditions of stannylene formation, and the(More)
Bacterial sulfatases can be good tools to increase the molecular diversity of glycosaminoglycan synthetic fragments. A chondroitin 4-O-sulfatase from the human commensal bacterium Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron has recently been identified and expressed. In order to use this enzyme for synthetic purposes, the minimal structure required for its activity has(More)
