  1. Goddat J, Grey A, Hricovini M, Grushcow J, Carver J, Shah R. Synthesis of di- and tri-saccharides with intramolecular NH-glycosidic linkages: molecules with flexible and rigid glycosidic bonds for conformational studies. Carbohydr Res. 1994;252:159-70 pubmed
    ..The unusual intra NH-glycosyl character makes the linkage rigid, and therefore these compounds should not only be useful for NMR studies but also as substrates or inhibitors of GlcNAc-transferases. ..
  2. Keenleyside W, Jayaratne P, MacLachlan P, Whitfield C. The rcsA gene of Escherichia coli O9:K30:H12 is involved in the expression of the serotype-specific group I K (capsular) antigen. J Bacteriol. 1992;174:8-16 pubmed
  3. Jayaratne P, Bronner D, MacLachlan P, Dodgson C, Kido N, Whitfield C. Cloning and analysis of duplicated rfbM and rfbK genes involved in the formation of GDP-mannose in Escherichia coli O9:K30 and participation of rfb genes in the synthesis of the group I K30 capsular polysaccharide. J Bacteriol. 1994;176:3126-39 pubmed
    ..coli O9:K30. Analysis of a collection of serotype O8 and O9 isolates by Southern hybridization and PCR amplification experiments demonstrated extensive polymorphism in the rfbM-rfbK region. ..
  4. De Kievit T, Lam J. Isolation and characterization of two genes, waaC (rfaC) and waaF (rfaF), involved in Pseudomonas aeruginosa serotype O5 inner-core biosynthesis. J Bacteriol. 1997;179:3451-7 pubmed
    ..Using a gene-replacement strategy, we attempted to generate P. aeruginosa waaC and waaF null mutants. Despite multiple attempts to isolate true knockout mutants, all transconjugants were identified as merodiploids. ..
  5. Amor P, Whitfield C. Molecular and functional analysis of genes required for expression of group IB K antigens in Escherichia coli: characterization of the his-region containing gene clusters for multiple cell-surface polysaccharides. Mol Microbiol. 1997;26:145-61 pubmed
    ..Thus, rfbK40 is in the location occupied by other Wzy-dependent rfb gene clusters, and rfbO8/O9 represents an additional locus. ..
  6. Liu X, Afonso L, Altman E, Johnson S, Brown L, Li J. O-acetylation of sialic acids in N-glycans of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) serum is altered by handling stress. Proteomics. 2008;8:2849-57 pubmed publisher
    ..The results indicated that major N-glycans in salmon serum contained mono-acetylated sialic acids (83%), and that the O-acetylation pattern of sialic acids could be altered by long-term stress. ..
