We investigated link atom approaches for treating the polar C-O bond with particular reference to the glycosidic bond found in complex carbohydrates. We show that cutting this bond after the oxygen in the QM region and saturating the QM system with a hydrogen link atom leads to greater conformational and configurational accuracy at the boundary compared(More)
The herpes simplex virus uracil-DNA glycosylase (hsvUNG) enzyme is responsible for the reactivation of the virus from latency and efficient viral replication in nerve tissue. The lack of uracil-DNA glycosylase enzyme in human neurons and the continuous deamination of cytosine create an environment where the presence of viral uracil-DNA glycosylase is a(More)
Mammalian sialyltransferases play a role in the metastasis of various cancers in humans. Inhibitors of these enzymes will in principle be able to directly inhibit aberrant sialylation in cancer. Inhibitors of ST3Gal-I resembling the donor component of SN1 Transition State structures were previously evaluated as part of a kinetics study. Here, using(More)
