The present study reports a comprehensive nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) characterization and a systematic conformational sampling of the conformational preferences of 170 glycan moieties of glycosphingolipids as produced in large-scale quantities by bacterial fermentation. These glycans span across a variety of families including the blood group antigens (A, B and O), core structures (Types 1, 2 and 4), fucosylated oligosaccharides (core and lacto-series), sialylated oligosaccharides (Types…

A discrete Fourier-encoded, diagonal-free experiment to simplify homonuclear 2D NMR correlations.
A homonuclear encoding approach based on imparting a discrete phase modulation of the targeted cross peaks and combining it with a site-selective sculpting scheme, capable of simplifying the patterns arising in these 2D correlation spectra, provides a new way to retrieve 2D coupling information within homon nuclear spin systems, with enhanced sensitivity, speed, and clarity.
