albicans GPI7 leads to an aberrant cell wall composition with increased chitin content and less protein abundance [137], while cells lacking Smp3 mannosyltransferase are nonviable [118].
Development of Smp3 or Gup1 inhibitors would be of value in view of their nonessential nature or absence in humans, respectively.
Melting points were determined by using Stuart SMP3 melting point apparatus and uncorrected.
For the theoretical calculations, the amount of the immobilized capture antibody is estimated as follows: Each printed droplet is -0.6 nL in volume (SMP3 pins; www.arrayit.com), and the antibody concentration is typically 1.6 [micro]mol/L; thus, ~1 fmol of antibody is deposited per spot, i.e., 3 fmol per array with three replicate spots.
Melting point was measured by Stuart SMP3 melting point apparatus and the elemental analysis was determined by flash EA1112 analyzer.
Melting points of the compounds were measured in open capillaries using Stuart melting point apparatus (SMP3) and are uncorrected.
Arrays were printed on either NoAb (NoAb Biodiscoveries) or CodeLink (Amersham Biosciences) modified microscope slides by use of a Genomic Solutions Prosys Gantry (Genomic Solutions) with either SynQuad noncontact dispensing nozzles or Stealth SMP3 (Telechem International) split pins.
