  1. 1. Some New Methods in Sialic Acid Chemistry

    Author : Teddy Ercegovic; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; thioglycoside promoter; ganglioside; Tumor-associated antigen; lactam; lactone; sialic acid; N-acetylneuraminic acid; Neu5Ac; sialyl donor; auxiliary group; 3- S -phenylthio; bis-sialic acid lactam; 3- S -phenylseleno; silver trifluoromethanesulfonate; iodine monochloride; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : Gangliosides (G) are sialic acid-containing cell surface glycosphingolipids capable of forming lactones, i.e. inner esters. Some gangliosides are tumor-associated antigens, and they may serve as immunogens in their lactone form, where the latter is comparatively more abundant on the surface of malignant cells. READ MORE

  2. 2. Helicobacter pylori Sialic Acid-Specific Surface Lectin

    Author : Siiri Hirmo; Enheten för infektionssjukdomar; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bakteriologi; mycology; Mikrobiologi; virology; bacteriology; haemagglutinin; Helicobacter pylori; sialic acid; sialidase; gastrointestinal mucin; milk glycoprotein; Microbiology; resonant mirror biosensor; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : Helicobacter pylori is a gastric pathogen colonising the gastric mucus layer and epithelium of gastric tissue and is associated with chronic type B gastritis and peptic ulcer disease. The attachment of H. pylori to gastric epithelial cells involves several structures recognised by specific bacterial surface proteins. READ MORE

  3. 3. Structural Insight into the Bacterial Sialic Acid Catabolic Pathway

    Author : Rhawnie Caing Carlsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sialic acid; bacterial catabolic pathway;

    Abstract : A genetically diverse community of commensal and pathogenic bacteria thrive in the digestive system and urogenital tracts of animals. Many of these bacteria forage sialic acid from mucosal cell surfaces. READ MORE

  4. 4. Design and Synthesis of Sialic Acid Conjugates as Inhibitors of EKC-causing Adenoviruses

    Author : Susanne Johansson; Jan Kihlberg; Mikael Elofsson; Stefan Oscarson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sialic acid; sialylmimetics; sialylation; multivalency; glycoconjugates; adenovirus; antiviral agents; epidemic keratoconjunctivitis; Bioorganic chemistry; Bioorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : The combat against viral diseases has been, and still is, a major challenge in the field of drug development. Viruses are intracellular parasites that use the host cell ma-chinery for their replication and release. Therefore it is difficult to target and destroy the viral particle without disturbing the essential functions of the host cell. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sialic acid-dependent binding specificities of Helicobacter pylori and influenza virus. Importance of different parts of the binding sequences

    Author : Petra Johansson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : sialic acid; carbohydrates; Helicobacter pylori; influenza virus; binding specificities; glycosphingolipids;

    Abstract : Many viruses and bacteria adhere to host cell glycoconjugates in a specific manner, utilizing selected carbohydrate sequences. The aim of this work was to investigate at a molecular level the interactions of two important human pathogens, influenza virus and Helicobacter pylori, with sialylated carbohydrate structures.
