Structure of an acidic polysaccharide from a marine bacterium Pseudoalteromonas distincta KMM 638 containing 5-acetamido-3,5,7,9-tetradeoxy-7-formamido-L-glycero-L-manno-nonulosonic acid.
Oligosaccharides were derived from the polysaccharide by partial acid hydrolysis and mild alkaline degradation and characterised by electrospray ionisation (ESI) MS and 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. Expand
The hepatitis B virus preS1 domain hijacks host trafficking proteins by motif mimicry.
The data provide the structural road map for developing peptidomimetic antivirals targeting the γ2-EAR-preS1 interaction, which was relatively weak and efficiently outcompeted by a synthetic peptide. Expand
Structures of two polysaccharides of Campylobacter jejuni 81116.
These advanced investigations revealed the occurrence of two different polysaccharides in the approximate ratio of 3:1, each having a tetrasaccharide repeating unit, which is important for understanding the chemical structure of Campylobacter jejuni. Expand
Synthesis of P -stereogenic BINAP bissulfide analogues
Abstract A synthetic route to BINAP disulfide analogues with chirality on one of the phosphorus atoms was developed. The synthesis of these ligands was achieved by step-wise palladium andExpand
NMR Spectroscopy Reveals Cytochrome c–Poly(ethylene glycol) Interactions
The interaction of cyt c with PEG as revealed by H,N correlation spectroscopy is reported, which indicates the use of crowding agents is likely to facilitate the structural characterisation of weak protein interactions. Expand
A convenient and mild chromatography-free method for the purification of the products of Wittig and Appel reactions.
A mild method for the facile removal of phosphine oxide from the crude products of Wittig and Appel reactions is described. Work-up with oxalyl chloride to generate insoluble chlorophosphonium saltExpand
Restricted rotation in 9-phenyl-anthracenes: a prediction fulfilled.
The V-T NMR spectra of 9-(1-naphthyl)-10-phenylanthracene reveal that the rotational barrier of the unsubstituted phenyl ring is at least 21 kcal mol(-1). Expand
Structure of a colitose-containing O-specific polysaccharide of the marine bacterium Pseudoalteromonas tetraodonis IAM 14160(T).
O-specific polysaccharide was isolated by mild acid degradation of the lipopolysaccharide of Pseudoalteromonas tetraodonis type strain IAM 14160(T) and studied by sugar and methylation analyses alongExpand
Protein surface recognition using geometrically pure Ru(ii) tris(bipyridine) derivatives† †This article is part of the ‘Emerging Investigators’ themed issue for ChemComm ‡ ‡Electronic supplementary
Fac and mer isomers of functionalised ruthenium(ii) tris(bipyridine) derivatives are shown to have different recognition properties towards cytochrome c.
Selective protein-surface sensing using ruthenium(II) tris(bipyridine) complexes.
It is illustrated that functionalised RuII tris-bipyridine complexes can be used as selective and low nanomolar sensors for cytochrome c (cyt c) and the highest affinity receptor binds cyt c with 1:1 stoichiometry and 2 nm. Expand
