[reaction: see text] Herein we apply a recently introduced protocol using ammonium carbamate in methanol to the amination of crude chitobiose leading to 1,beta-aminochitobiose. This simple, one-step procedure allows a facile preparation of unstable glycosylamines in contrast to the commonly implemented ammonium bicarbonate based amination of water-soluble(More)
The biosynthesis of asparagine-linked glycoproteins utilizes a dolichylpyrophosphate-linked glycosyl donor (Dol-PP-GlcNAc(2)Man(9)Glc(3)), which is assembled by the series of membrane-bound glycosyltransferases that comprise the dolichol pathway. This biosynthetic pathway is highly conserved throughout eukaryotic evolution. While complementary genetic and(More)
Linear hexapeptides featuring the asparagine mimetics alanine-beta-hydrazide, alanine-beta-hydroxylamine, and 1,3-diaminobutanoic acid have been synthesized as oligosaccharyl transferase (OT) substrate mimetics and chemoselectively N-glycosylated to obtain the corresponding neoglycopeptides as OT product mimetics. The effect of glycosylation on the binding(More)
