Undecaprenol-containing glycolipids (UCGs) are essential precursors of bacterial glycopolymers and glycoproteins. We report a novel semi-synthetic strategy to prepare labelled UCGs directly from undecaprenol. This one-size-fits-all approach offers a concise and efficient method for obtaining labelled-UCGs, which will allow new mechanistic studies and inhibitor screens to be performed on novel antibiotic targets.
FingerprintDive into the research topics of 'From Plant to Probe: Semi-Synthesis of Labelled Undecaprenol Analogues Allows Rapid Access to Probes for Antibiotic Targets'. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
