Synthetic Approaches for Accessing Pseudaminic Acid (Pse) Bacterial Glycans

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Sugars to order: A summary of work in the field of pseudaminic acid (Pse) synthesis is provided. This non‐mammalian sugar is of increasing biological importance as an essential component in cell‐surface glycoconjugates of a number of pathogenic bacteria. Pioneering studies into biosynthesis of Pse5Ac7Ac have provided inspiration to carbohydrate chemists.
