Product Description

Man2NAc4NAc6-N3 (6-azido-2,4-diacetamido-2,4,6-trideoxy-D-mannopyranose)

Mas-Pons et al., in 2014, described a new technique to specifically label via click chemistry cultivable Legionella pneumophila membranes through assimilation of an azido analog of legionaminic acid precursor (Man2NAc4NAc6-N3). Legionaminic acid is an essential component of lipopolysaccharides (LPS) exclusively synthesized by Legionella.

The resulting viable Legionella pneumophila decorated with Man2NAc4NAc6-Nat membrane surface can be detected via Cu(I)-catalyzed click chemistry or Cu-free click chemistry. Both offer the possibility to hook either an alkyne / cyclooctyne fluorescent dye or alkyne / cyclooctyne biotin followed by streptavidin enzyme conjugate for further detection by microscopy, colorimetry or luminescence. Alkyne / cyclooctyne biotin anchoring also allows subsequent isolation or enrichment process using streptavidin magnetic beads.
