Abstract [en]

The structure of the repeating unit of the O-antigenic polysaccharide (PS) from Escherichia coli O174 has been determined. Component analysis together with H-1 and C-13 NMR spectroscopy experiments were employed to elucidate the structure. Inter-residue correlations were determined by H-1, C-13-heteronuclear multiple-bond correlation and H-1, H-1-NOESY experiments. The PS is composed of tetrasaccharide repeating units with the following structure: -> 4)-beta-D-GlcpA-(1 -> 3)-beta-D-Galp-(1 -> 3)-beta-D-GalpNAc-(1 -> vertical bar beta-D-GlcpNAc-(1 -> 2) Cross-peaks of low intensity were present in the NMR spectra consistent with a beta-D-GlcpNAc-(1 -> 2)-beta-D-GlcpA(1 -> structural element at the terminal part of the polysaccharide, which on average is composed of similar to 15 repeating units. Consequently the biological repeating unit has a 3-substituted N-acetyl-D-galactosamine residue at its reducing end.

Abstract [en]

Carbohydrates constitute one of the three major classes of biomolecules found in all living cells and, unlike nucleic acids and proteins, their polymeric structures are not based on a template. The structural diversity of these molecules confers them an enormous capacity to encode information in biological systems, acting as efficient mediators in the interaction of the cell with the environment. In order to understand the roles of glycans in biological processes it is of key importance to have a detailed understanding of their structures and conformational preferences, and NMR spectroscopy is one of most powerful techniques for the study of these molecules in solution.

This thesis is focused on the structural and conformational analysis of lipopolysaccharides from Gram-negative bacteria. In the first two projects (Chapter 2 and 3) the structural analyses of the biological repeating units of the O-antigen polysaccharides from E. coli O174ab and O115 are described; in both cases a combination of NMR spectroscopy and gas chromatography techniques were used. Special emphasis was made in the characterization of the O-acetylation patterns observed in the native O-antigen polysaccharide from E. coli O115. Chapter 4 describes the development of a new methodology for the determination of the absolute configuration of monosaccharide components of glycans. This methodology was used in the structural elucidation of the O-antigen PS of E. coli O155 (Chapter 5) that was carried out in a semi-automated manner using the program CASPER and unassigned NMR data. The conformational preferences of O-antigen PS of E. coli O5ac and O5ab are analyzed in Chapter 6, using a combination of NMR spectroscopy and molecular modeling methods. In Chapter 7 the structural analysis is focused on the core region of the LPS, and the structures of the deacylated lipooligosaccharides of three rough mutants of B. melitesis are reported. In several of the aforementioned chapters, the biosynthetic aspects behind the assembly of the respective PSs were examined on the bases of genetic information available in the NCBI and ECODAB databases.  Finally, in Chapter 8, different NMR pulse sequences available for the study of proteins and nucleic acids were evaluated and optimized for the structural analysis of 13C uniformly-labeled oligo- and polysaccharides.
