The cell membrane not only defines a cell but also acts as a protective barrier, which means that cells must use specialised transmembrane proteins in their membranes to communicate with the world around them.
Synthesis of ribonucleosides using biocatalytic cascades
Prof N Turner, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round
Background – Current state of the art for the synthesis of Anti-Sense Oligonucleotides employs solid phase synthesis. The ASOs are assembled from individual ribonucleotides which themselves are often requiring complicated multistep routes to prepare.
