A Route to Polyprenol Pyrophosphate-Based Probes of O- Polysaccharide Biosynthesis in Klebsiella pneumoniae O2aDownload
An approach for the assembly of polyprenol pyrophosphate-based probes of O-polysaccharide biosynthesis in Klebsiella pneumoniae serotype O2a is described. This convergent route features high yielding, diastereoselective glycosylations and the late stage installation of the polyprenol...
Synthetic Polyprenol-Pyrophosphate Linked Oligosaccharides Are Efficient Substrates for Mycobacterial Galactan Biosynthetic EnzymesDownload
Mycobacteria, including the human pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis, produce a complex cell wall that is critical for their survival. The largest structural component of the cell wall, the mycolylarabinogalactanpeptidoglycan complex, has at its core a galactan domain composed of...
Chlorella viruses produce N-linked glycoproteins with carbohydrate moieties that differ in structure from all other N- linked glycans. In addition, unlike most viruses, these organisms do not hijack the biosynthetic machinery of the host to make glycocoproteins; instead, they produce their own...
A route for the synthesis of glycuronamides via the intermediacy of 6-S-tolyl-glycosides and uronic acid thioesters, is reported. The route, which is compatible with a variety of carbohydrate residues and protecting groups, was used to synthesize the repeating unit of the E. coli K54 capsular...
Synthesis of the Campylobacter jejuni 81-176 strain capsular polysaccharide repeating unit reveals the absolute configuration of its O-methyl phosphoramidate motifDownload
The O-methyl phosphoramidate (MeOPN) motif is a non-stoichiometric modification of capsular polysaccharides (CPS) in ~70% of all Campylobacter jejuni strains. Infections by C. jejuni lead to food-borne illnesses and the CPS they produce are key virulence factors. The MeOPN phosphorus atom in...
(Eventual) Stability and Change Across Partnerships
Does a new partnership differ from its preceding one? This study investigates whether relationship dynamics change as people transition from one partnership to another and examines a number of predictors that might explain variation in change trajectories. We draw on data gathered from 554 focal...
A Convergent Route to Enantiomers of the Bicyclic Monosaccharide Bradyrhizose Leads to Insight into the Bioactivity of an Immunologically Silent LipopolysaccharideDownload
The synthesis of bradyrhizose, the monosaccharide component of the lipopolysaccharide O-antigen of the nitrogen-fixing bacteria Bradyrhizobium sp. BTAi1 and sp. ORS278, has been achieved in 25 steps in an overall yield of 6% using myo-inositol and ethyl propiolate as the starting materials. The...
Synthesis of a homologous series of galactofuranose-containing mycobacterial arabinogalactan fragmentsDownload
Mycobacteria, including the human pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis the causative agent of tuberculosis, produce a complex cell wall structure made of carbohydrates and lipids. The major structural element of the mycobacterial cell wall is a glycoconjugate called the mycolic...
Contextually predictable, high frequency, competitor-dense words are often produced with less phonetically contrastive categories in spontaneous speech, often manifested with shorter durations. The present study investigates the role of temporal variation in the recognition of isolated words...
