A derivative of allyl 3"-O-(2-acetamido-2-deoxy-beta-D-glucopyranosyl)-beta-lactoside with a free OH group at C-4GlcNAc was glycosylated with trichloroacetimidate of selectively protected GlcA(beta 1-->3)Gal alpha disaccharide in dichloromethane in the presence of trimethylsilyl triflate resulting in a pentasaccharide product with an 82% yield.

In DOC-PAGE, lipopolysaccharide (LPS) of Proteus mirabilis R14/1959 (Rb-type) mutant showed a ladder-like migration pattern indicating the presence of a high molecular weight polysaccharide chain. The isolated polysaccharide, called T-antigen because of similarity with the T1 chain of Salmonella friedenau LPS, contained D-glucose, D-galacturonic acid(More)
O-specific polysaccharide was isolated from Proteus penneri strain 12 (ATCC 33519) lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and studied using NMR spectroscopy, including selective spin-decoupling, one-dimensional NOE, two-dimensional homonuclear correlation spectroscopy, 13C,1H heteronuclear correlation spectroscopy and chemical methods (O-deacetylation, Smith degradation,(More)
The 2-aminoethyl glycoside of pentasaccharide 3-O-sulfo-GlcA(beta-1-->3)Gal(beta-1-->4)GlcNAc(beta-1-->3)Gal(beta-1--> 4)Glc(beta (1) and its conjugates with biotin and biotinylated polyacrylic acid were synthesized as molecular probes to investigate the recognition of the HNK-1 epitope containing carbohydrates by proteins. Key steps in the first of two(More)
Branched arabinofuranose pentasaccharide with 2-azidoethyl aglycon was prepared for the first time by [3+1+1] bis-(1,2-cis)-glycosylation of trisaccharide diol with silyl-protected thioglycoside glycosyl donor. The presence of 2-azidoethyl aglycon would enable the preparation of neoglycoconjugates using the click chemistry approaches.
A universal approach to the synthesis of carbohydrate conjugates with polyhedral boron compounds (PBCs) was developed. Oligosaccharide derivatives with amino group in aglycone moiety can be conjugated with PBC carboxy derivatives using N-methyl-N-(4,6-dimethoxy-1,3,5-triazin-2-yl)morpholinium chloride as a condensing agent. Both N-and O-glycosides differing(More)
Using reaction of moraprenyl phosphate with the known N-acetylsialyl chloride and the novel N,N-diacetylsialyl (Neu5Ac(2)) chloride α- and β-anomers of polyprenyl sialyl phosphate were synthesized for the first time. The α-selectivity dramatically increased when Neu5Ac(2) chloride was used as the glycosyl donor.
Rapid and simple synthesis of oligosaccharides related to one of the terminal motifs of mycobacterial lipoarabinomannan is described. An array of homologous linear α(1 → 5)-linked oligoarabinofuranosides with 4-(2-chloroethoxy)phenyl aglycon and selectively unprotected 5-OH group at the non-reducing end was obtained by oligomerization of 3-O-benzoyl(More)
The O-specific polysaccharide of Proteus mirabilis O28 was found to contain D-galactose, D-galacturonic acid (GalA), 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-D-glucose, L-serine, L-lysine, and O-acetyl groups in molar ratios 1:2:1:1:1:1, the amino acids being linked via their alpha-amino group to the carboxyl group of GalA. The polysaccharide was studied using 1H- and 13C-NMR(More)
paper deals mainly with recent progress in chitin chemistry and biochemistry for pharmaceutical and medical science. Use of "'Standardized Intermediates ''] with excellent solubility in common organic solvents remarkably facilitated the regioselective and quantitative synthetic procedures of a series of sulfated derivatives of chitin and chitosan.
