A New Route to NAG-NAM Disaccharide, an Important Building Block for Peptidoglycan Oligomer Synthesis.

The Chemistry and Biotechnology team of CERMAV has just published a very efficient methodological approach for the synthesis of the repeating unit of peptidoglycan, an essential constituent of the bacterial cell wall whose biosynthesis is targeted by most antibiotics. This first result is the basis of a global strategy for accessing synthetic peptidoglycan oligomers, fundamental tools to decipher the life cycle of this complex polymer.
