    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Carbohydrates; Glycobiology; Carbohydrate-protein interactions; Perfluorophenylazide PFPA ; Photochemistry; Carbohydrate surface immobilization; Carbohydrate microarrays; Surface plasmon resonance SPR ; Quartz crystal microbalance QCM ; Atomic force microscopy AFM ; Glyconanomaterials; Concanavalin A Con A ; Cyanovirin-N CV-N ; 1-Glycosyl thiols; Mutarotation; 1-S-glycosylation; Stereocontrol;

    Abstract : This thesis mainly deals with the development of photochemical approaches to immobilize carbohydrates on surfaces for glycobiological studies. These approaches have been incorporated into a number of state-of-the-art nanobio-platforms, including carbohydrate microarrays, surface plasmon resonance (SPR), quartz crystal microbalance (QCM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and glyconanomaterials.

  4. 4. Carbohydrate Synthesis and Study of Carbohydrate-Lectin Interactions Using QCM Biosensors and Microarray Technologies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Zhichao Pei; Olof Ramström; Roland J. Pieters; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lectins; Carbohydrates; Molecular recognition; Biosensors; Quartz crystal microbalance; Carbohydrate microarrays.; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : Interactions between carbohydrates and proteins are increasingly being recognized as crucial in many biological processes, such as cellular adhesion and communication. In order to investigate the interactions of carbohydrates and proteins, the development of efficient analytic technologies, as well as novel strategies for the synthesis of carbohydrates, have to be explored.
