Chain of command: Multi-block glycopolymers made of mannose (M, see figure), glucose, and di(ethylene glycol) ethyl ether (D) monomers were synthesized using a technique to control the polymer sequence. These highly monodisperse glycopolymers were then tested for binding and inhibition of DC-SIGN, a protein important for HIV infection.
