15) Enzymes involved in glycosidic bond
synthesis represent more than 1% of all open-reading-frame genes in M.
2] to form reactive oxygen species, and restricted oxidative cleavage of glycosidic bond
Beginning with glycosidic bond
formation, the contributors provide the most recent developments in stereoselectivity and therapeutic relevance for advanced biochemistry students, as well as research scientists in the field of biosynthesis, biopathways and vaccination studies.
These mutants of retaining glycosidases have had the catalytic glutamate nucleophile replaced with alanine, glycine, or serine, preventing the usual double displacement mechanism for glycosidic bond
A glycosidic bond
is a covalent chemical bond that joins two simple sugars by means of an oxygen atom.
Some postulate that chondrex functions as a glycosidic bond
hydrolase involved in the tissue-remodeling process [3, 4, 6].
Cyclodextrins are naturally occurring oligosaccharides consisting of D-glucose molecules linked end-to-end by [alpha]-1,4 glycosidic bonds
to form a circular structure.
In contrast to cellulose, the alpha-anomer--the alpha-1,4 glycosidic bonds
between glucose units--prefers a helical assembly, as seen in starch.
Chitin is a biopolymer composed of N-acetyl D-glucosamine units linked by [beta]-1, 4 glycosidic bonds
Pectinase is a generic name for a family of enzymes that catalyse hydrolysis of the glycosidic bonds
in the pectic polymers .
The pectin is obtained as a linear polymer of D-galacturonic acid and its methyl ester in which the monomer units are linked by 1, 4 glycosidic bonds
It's an extremely large molecule composed of many repeating units of the disaccharide, D-N-acetylglucosamine, and D-glucuronic acid, linked together via alternating beta-1,4 and beta-1,3 glycosidic bonds
