Synthesized oligosaccharide, which is the active component of innovative vaccine

Synthesized oligosaccharide, which is the active component of innovative vaccine

In chemistry lab glycoconjugates Zelinsky Institute headed Corr. RAS Nicholas E. Nifant’eva was synthesized unique oligosaccharide, which is an active component of innovative vaccines.

Vaccine, the effect of which was studied at Harvard Medical School, can be used to combat Staphylococcus aureus and other dangerous bacteria, fungi, and protozoa.

The results were published in the journal «Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2013, may, doi: 10.1073/pnas.1303573110," Antibody to a conserved antigenic target is protective against diverse prokaryotic and eukaryotic pathogens".

Professional community assessed the results as a breakthrough in the protection from exposure to dangerous pathogens. Congratulations on the success of our colleagues who participated in this work: Nicholas Nifant’eva, Yuri Tsvetkov, Marina Gening.

Congratulations! Valentine Ananikov has been elected to Academia Europaea! The European Academy of Sciences (Academia Europaea) was founded in 1988. It unites about four thousand globally acknowledged experts in mathematics, medicine, natural sciences, humanities, law, economy, and social and political sciences from many countries of Europe. Among its members are also European scientists who live in other regions of the world. Currently, it includes seventy two Nobel laureates and it should be highlighted that many of them were elected to the Academy before winning the Prize.
Professor Mario Pargliaro Lecturing at Zelinsky Institute Prof Mario Pagliaro (Palermo Italy) gave two talks on June 8th and 9th.
Selective In-Situ Metal Azide Reactions Alexey Sukhorukov, N. D. Zelinsky Institute of Organic Chemistry, Moscow, Russia, and colleagues studied the selective reactions of in-situ generated metal azides on N,N-bis(oxy)enamines. By combining readily generated bis(oxy)enamine substrates with sodium azide and one of a variety of metal salts (including Mg, Cu, Zn, Co, and Ni), the researchers showed that the metal cation selectively alters the mechanism to favor the formation of specific organoazide products.
On February 1st, Prof. Gleb Sukhorukov from the School of Engineering and Materials Science, Queen Mary, University of London, gave a lecture “Remote Controlled Delivery Nanosystems” at ZIOC.
