Novel approaches to design glycan‐based antibacterial inhibitors

Von Wiley-VCH zur Verfügung gestellt

The interactions between bacterial lectins and carbohydrates on the host cell surface can mediate bacterial adhesion, invasion and immune evasion. Multivalency plays a key role in these binding events. However, additional molecular mechanisms greatly impact multivalent binding recognition. In order to develop specific and effective bacterial inhibitors, a deeper understanding of the complex underlying mechanisms of bacterial adhesion processes is necessary. By interfering with bacterial adhesion, synthetic multivalent glycoconjugates do not only have the potential to improve or replace antibiotic treatments, but also represent useful tools to study carbohydrate-pathogen interactions. In this review, we highlight a few recent advances in the synthesis and application of synthetic glycan-based scaffolds to uncover the nature of glycan-bacteria interactions and to design efficient bacterial inhibitors.
