Research interests:

Main research interest is to develop synthetic strategies for the synthesis of complex saccharide molecules of biological interest and their glycoconjugates to use them in the immunochemical studies towards the preparation of anti-microbial vaccine candidates.

The group is also engaged in the design and synthesis of medicinally important small molecules (e.g. anti-filarial, anticancer agents, antioxidantsis and enzyme inhibitors etc ) and their bioevaluation in a collaborative program

Research:

1. Design and Syntheses of molecules for their biological evaluation

 (a) In continuation of our ongoing program on the synthesis and bioevaluation of natural products and their analogs a series of glycosyl trizolyl terpenoid derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for their anticancer activities against different cancer cells. Several compounds were found anticancer agents and their detailed biological studies are under progress.

(b) A series of analogs of Resveratrol, a well known anticancer agent were prepared and their evaluation as anti filarial agents and anticancer agents are under progress.

(c) A series of aryl bisindolylmethane derivatives were prepared using an eco-friendly condition in water and their evaluation as CA-ATPase modulator and anticancer agent is ongoing.

(d) Cell wall glycoconjugates corresponding to the Meningitidis type X and A (MenX and A) have been prepared by the synthesis of the respective cell wall polysaccharide fragments by chemical glycosylations and then coupled with tetanus toxoid protein. The glycol-protein conjugates were evaluated for their antigenic functions and found promising lead for the development of the meningococcal vaccines.

(e) A collaborative program has been initiated under DST twinning project for the isolation, characterization and bioevaluation of natural products and preparation of their synthetic analogs.

 2. Studies on synthetic organic chemistry particularly carbohydrate chemistry:

 A large number of complex oligosaccharides corresponding to the antigenic cell wall polysaccharides of pathogenic bacteria have been synthesized using several novel techniques. These synthetic oligosaccharides act as important precursors for the preparation of glycoconjugates by attaching them with appropriate proteins under reductive amination methodologies. Synthetic glycoconjugates will be used to raise antibodies against them for their application in the development of diagnostic markers as well as antimicrobial agents.

A number of synthesized oligosaccharides were subjected to Molecular dynamics simulation studies to get the conformational structural insights of the compounds for designing glycomimetics corresponding to these molecules.
