Efficient Synthesis of Oligosaccharides and Synthesis of Pathogen-Associated Molecular Patterns for Their Biofunctional Studies
Many natural oligosaccharides and glycoconjugates exist in heterogeneous mixtures that are difficult to isolate. Even if the purification is possible, only small amounts are obtained in general. The recent development of oligosaccharide and glycoconjugate synthesis enables the preparation of complex natural oligosaccharides. Synthetic oligosaccharides and glycoconjugates are now used to study their roles in various biologically important processes. In this section, preparation of bacterial glycoconjugate libraries and their use in biofunctional studies are described.
