So far, glycopeptides are mostly obtained from natural sources. However, purification of said peptides is highly challenging and laborious. The glycopeptides found in nature are mostly proteins of more than 100 amino acids in length, often comprising more than one glycosylation site(s) and their glycosylation pattern cannot be fully controlled. Therefore, there is still the need for efficient methods for producing glycopeptides by synthetical means. Currently, there are two common strategies for the chemical synthesis of glycopeptides known in the art. According to the first strategy, a peptide strand is synthesized and, during the synthesis of said peptide, one or more glycosylated amino acid building block(s) are integrated in the sequence instead of standard amino acids. According to the second strategy, a peptide is first fully synthesized, then, subsequently, one or more protecting groups are cleaved off selectively and the carbohydrate building block is conjugated to the peptide. Both strategies bear several severe drawbacks. The present invention relates to a method for the production of glycosylated peptides conjugated with one or more hydrophilic polymer(s) and glycosylating the polymer-conjugated peptide by means of one or more glycosyltransferase(s).

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.
When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure
Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
