Toward Orthogonal Preparation of Sequence-Defined Monodisperse Heteromultivalent Glycomacromolecules on Solid Support Using Staudinger Ligation and Copper-Catalyzed Click Reactions
The investigation of heteromultivalent interactions of complex glycoligands and proteins is critical for understanding important biological processes and developing carbohydrate-based pharmaceutics. Synthetic glycomimetics, derived by mimicking complex glycoligands on a variety of scaffolds, have become important tools for studying the role of carbohydrates in chemistry and biology. In this paper, we report on a new synthetic strategy for the preparation of monodisperse, sequence-defined glycooligomers or so-called precision glycomacromolecules based on solid phase oligomer synthesis and the Staudinger ligation. This strategy employs a solid-supported synthetic approach using a novel carboxy-functionalized building block which bears a functional handle required for Staudinger ligation on solid support. Furthermore, we combined Staudinger ligation and copper catalyzed azide alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) reactions to synthesize heteromultivalent glycooligomers on solid support for the first time, demonstrati...

We recently generalized the formerly alignment-dependent multivariate image analysis applied to quantitative structure–activity relationships (MIA-QSAR) method through the application of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT), allowing for its application to noncongruent and structurally dive ... more
Poly-ADP-ribosylation (PARylation) is a protein posttranslational modification (PTM) that is critically involved in many biological processes that are linked to cell stress responses. It is catalyzed by a class of enzymes known as poly-ADP-ribose polymerases (PARPs). In particular, PARP1 is ... more
This review focuses on the type A cytochrome c oxidases (CcO), which are found in all mitochondria and also in several aerobic bacteria. CcO catalyzes the respiratory reduction of dioxygen (O2) to water by an intriguing mechanism, the details of which are fairly well understood today as a r ... more
