The lipopolysaccharide of Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 contains an unusual sugar, 2,3-diacetamido-2,3-dideoxy-d-mannuronic acid (d-ManNAc3NAcA). wbpB, wbpE, and wbpD are thought to encode oxidase,(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Bordetella pertussis produce lipopolysaccharide (LPS) that contains 2,3-diacetamido-2,3-dideoxy-D-mannuronic acid (D-ManNAc3NAcA). A five-enzyme biosynthetic pathway that(More)
In connection with studies on lipopolysaccharide biosynthesis in respiratory pathogens we had a need to access potential biosynthetic intermediate sugar nucleotides. Herein we report the chemical(More)
