Solution NMR structural studies of glycans.

Freedberg DI, Kwon J


In this account, we present a summary of our progress in the study of glycan solution conformations by NMR spectroscopy. We begin by comparing the structural biology of glycans to that of proteins. We continue by defining the challenges in solution structural studies of glycans as we see them and show what we have done to help address those challenges. This includes Residual Dipolar Coupling studies and their hurdles, accurate coupling constant measurement in the presence of strong 1H-1H coupling, direct detection of hydrogen bonds where the NHs, OHs or CHs are the hydrogen bond donors, and on-cell NMR structural studies. We also suggest some future approaches to glycan structure determination.
