  1. 1. Synthetic analogs of sialyl Lewis x

    Author : Ulf Ellervik; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; stereoselective synthesis; regioselective synthesis; lactam analogs; lactone; Selectin; Sialyl Lewis x; SLex; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : The sialyl Lewis x (SLex) tetrasaccharide is the smallest recognizable ligand for selectins. The selectins constitute a vital part of the inflammatory cascade for recruitment of leukocytes to a site of tissue damage or microbial infection. READ MORE

  2. 2. Design and Synthesis of Inhibitors Targeting the Aspartic Proteases HIV-1 PR and BACE-1

    Author : Jenny Adrian Meredith; Bertil Samuelsson; Ulf Ellervik; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry; organisk kemi;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the synthesis of molecules designed for inhibition of two aspartic proteases, viral HIV-1 PR and human BACE-1. It also reports on the structure activity relationships of the targeted enzyme inhibitors. It is estimated that currently 33 million people are infected with HIV, the causative agent of AIDS.

  3. 3. Synthesis of oligosaccharides related to the capsular polysaccharides of Streptococcus pneumoniae serotype 9 and of Cryptococcus neoformans

    Author : Marianne Alpe; Ulf Ellervik; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry; organisk kemi;

    Abstract : In the present investigation, synthesis of oligosaccharides corresponding to structural elements present in the capsular polysaccharides of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Cryptococcus neoformans has been achieved. The first two sections describe the synthesis of spacer-equipped oligosaccharides corresponding to structures from the CPS of Streptococcus pneumoniae serotypes 9N, 9A and 9L, the production of which involved synthetic challenges such as the construction of β-ManNAc and α-GlcA linkages.

  4. 4. Design and Synthesis of Hepatitis C Virus NS3 Protease Inhibitors : Targeting Different Genotypes and Drug-Resistant Variants

    Author : Anna Karin Belfrage; Anja Sandström; Ulf Ellervik; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; hepatitis C virus; HCV; NS3 protease inhibitors; structure-activity relationship; 2 1H -pyrazinone; quinazoline; resistance; Pd catalysis; Medicinal Chemistry; Läkemedelskemi; Farmaceutisk vetenskap; Pharmaceutical Science;

    Abstract : Since the first approved hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3 protease inhibitors in 2011, numerous direct acting antivirals (DAAs) have reached late stages of clinical trials. Today, several combination therapies, based on different DAAs, with or without the need of pegylated interferon-α injection, are available for chronic HCV infections. READ MORE

  5. 5. Synthesis of Orthogonally Functionalized Oligosaccharides for Self-assembled Monolayers and as Multimodal Tools in Chemical Biology

    Author : Timmy Fyrner; Peter Konradsson; Stefan Svensson; Bo Liedberg; Ulf Ellervik; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Oligosaccharide synthesis; glycosylation; thioglycosides; orthogonally protected; oligo lactosides ; spacer molecule; heterobifunctional; surface plasmon resonance; lipid anchor; self-assembled monolayers; glyconanoparticles;

    Abstract : This thesis covers different topics in the field of synthetic organic chemistry combined with the field of surface science and glycobiology.First, the text presents a series of orthogonally protected oligosaccharides (tri-, penta-, and heptasaccharides) of varying length and structures, which are synthesized with the aim of developing novel heterobifunctional biocompatible cross-linkers.
