The synthesis of the allyl beta-glycosides (8 and 20, respectively) of beta-D-GlcpA-(1----4)-D-Glcp and beta-D-Glcp-(1----3)-D-GlcpA (overlapping disaccharide fragments A and B) in the linear chain of the capsular polysaccharide (S3) from Streptococcus pneumoniae type 3 is described. Oxidation of allyl 2,3,6,2',3',4'-hexa-O-acetyl-beta-cellobioside with(More)
New methods of chemical and chemoenzymatic synthesis of nucleoside 5′-thiophosphates and 5′-α-thiotriphosphates are developed. The 5′-α-thiotriphosphates are used as substrates both in template-dependent enzymatic PCR synthesis and in a T7–RNA transcription polymerase system.
Di-, tri- and tetrasaccharide fragments of the linear chain of the capsular polysaccharide of Streptococcus pneumoniae type 3 consisting of glucose and glucuronic acid residues connected with beta 1----3- and beta 1----4-glycosidic linkage have been synthesised. A new method for selective deprotection of C3-hydroxyl group in the glucopyranuronic acid moiety(More)
A wide range of natural purine analogues was used as probe to assess the mechanism of recognition by the wild-type (WT) E. coli purine nucleoside phosphorylase (PNP) versus its Ser90Ala mutant. The results were analyzed from viewpoint of the role of the Ser90 residue and the structural features of the bases. It was found that the Ser90 residue of the PNP 1)(More)
The biotechnological method of synthesis of ribavirin, vidarabin, and 6-azauridine by the use of immobilized recombinant enzymatic preparations of nucleoside phosphorylase was improved. The effect of ribavirin and its combinations with the other synthesized nucleosides on the reproduction of Vaccinia virus was studied on the culture of Vero cells. The(More)
The synthesis of a versatile trisaccharide synthon is described with the combination of protecting groups suitable for preparing higher oligosaccharides of the sequence Man-Rha-Gal and for introducing side-chain substituents (such as residues of 3,6-dideoxy-hexoses and alpha-D-glucose). This synthon was used for the synthesis of protected tri- and(More)
Two approaches to the synthesis of 2-chloro-9-(2-deoxy-2-fluoro-β-D-arabinofuranosyl)adenine (1, clofarabine) were studied. The first approach consists in the chemical synthesis of 2-deoxy-2-fluoro-α-D-arabinofuranose-1-phosphate (12a, (2F)Ara-1P) via three step conversion of 1,3,5-tri-O-benzoyl-2-deoxy-2-fluoro-α-D-arabinofuranose (9) into the phosphate(More)
The biotechnological method of synthesis of ribavirin, vidarabin, and 6-azauridine by the use of immobilized recombinant enzymatic preparations of nucleoside phosphorylase was improved. The effect of ribavirin and its combinations with the other synthesized nucleosides on the reproduction of Vaccinia virus was studied using cultures of Vero cells. The(More)
Synthesis of the title trisaccharide was accomplished by sugar chain extension starting from the non-reducing terminus: coupling of Glcp NAc with LD-Hepp, then adding Glcp-OAll. An alternative route started from the reducing end: coupling of LD-Hepp with Glcp-OAll, then addition of Glcp NAc. In the synthesis of the title disaccharide a modification of the(More)
Oxidation of acetates of allyl and 2-(benzyloxycarbonylamino)ethyl beta-cellobiosides (with OH-4' and OH-6' unprotected) with the Jones reagent followed by esterification (with diazomethane or phenyldiazomethane) gave corresponding uronates with OH-4' unsubstituted. Condensation of these glycosyl acceptors and benzylated derivatives of D-galactose or(More)
