The intercellular adhesin involved in biofilm accumulation of Staphylococcus epidermidis is a linear beta-1,6-linked glucosaminoglycan: purification and structural analysis
The primary attachment to polymer surfaces followed by accumulation in multilayered cell clusters leads to biofilm production of Staphylococcus epidermidis, which is thought to contribute to…

On the basis of compositional analysis, fast-atom-bombardment mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy the following structure is proposed: teichoic acid (C polysaccharide) where AATGal is 2-acetamido-4-amino-2,4,6-trideoxy-D-galactose and the repeating units are linked to each other by phosphodiester bonds.

Pneumococcal lipoteichoic acid was extracted and purified by a novel, quick and effective procedure and preliminary results suggest that repeating units II and IV are enriched in separate molecular species.
Structural analysis of glycosphinoglipids by high-resolution 1H nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
Regularities related to the type, anomeric configuration, site of glycosidic linkage, and sequence of the component sugars glucose, galactose, glucosamine, and galactosamine are suited for elucidation of hitherto unknown structure of more complex glycosphingolipids.
High-pH anion-exchange chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection and molar response factors of human milk oligosaccharides.
Structural determination of N-2'-hydroxyoctadecenoyl-1-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-9-methyl-4, 8-sphingadienine from species of Aspergillus.
Urinary excretion of lactose and oligosaccharides in preterm infants fed human milk or infant formula
At present, not much is known about the absorption and metabolism of human milk (HM) oligosaccharides in term and preterm infants. We investigated the renal excretion of lactose and complex…

Three different variants of complex, branched, highly blood-group-B-active glycosphingolipids have been isolated from human erythrocytes and the nature of the anomeric linkages and branching points of B-V was established based upon the series of NMR data obtained from the B-I--B-IV analogues.
