A method, using high-performance anion-exchange chromatography with pulsed-amperometric detection (HPAEC-PAD), has been developed to determine the concentrations of Streptococcus pneumoniae capsular polysaccharides and polysaccharide conjugates used in formulating a conjugate vaccine for the prevention of pneumococcal infections. In an effort to determine(More)
The teichoic acid synthesized by Streptococcus pneumoniae serotype 5, also known as pneumococcal common antigen (C-polysaccharide), was purified. On the basis of compositional analysis, HPAEC-PAD analysis, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry and NMR spectroscopy, made on the native polysaccharide and on the dephosphorylated repeating unit, the following structure(More)
Scanning Force Microscopy has already been shown to be a convenient and rapid method for sensitive antigen detection and quantification. Here, we describe different improvement steps brought to a TSH Scanning Force Microscopic ImmunoAssay (SFMIA), each of them aiming to solve a previous limitation of the solid phase test format and leading to a significant(More)
Recently, several virus studies have shown that protein glycosylation play a fundamental role in the virus-host cell interaction. Glycosylation characterization of the envelope proteins in both insect and mammalian cell-derived dengue virus (DENV) has established that two potential glycosylation residues, the asparagine 67 and 153 can potentially be(More)
The lipooligosaccharide (LOS) of immunotype L11 is unique within serogroup A meningococci. In order to resolve its molecular structure, we conducted LOS genotyping by PCR analysis of genes responsible for alpha-chain sugar addition (lgtA, -B, -C, -E, -H, and -F) and inner core substituents (lgtG, lpt-3, and lpt-6). For this study, we selected seven strains(More)
The lipooligosaccharide (LOS) of immunotype L11 is unique within serogroup A meningococci. In order to resolve its molecular structure, we conducted LOS genotyping by PCR analysis of genes responsible for α chain sugar addition (lgtA, B ,C, E, H, F), and inner core substituents (lgtG, lpt-3 and lpt-6). For this study, we selected 7 strains belonging to(More)
In this paper the problem of simplifying the RAKE receiver is considered. The classical solution, consisting in taking the largest taps of the channel impulse response, is compared with a novel solution that takes into account the total noise in the decoder. The classical simplification is optimal in presence of Gaussian noise while, in the practice, the(More)
