Dissecting the Molecular Basis of the Role of the O-Mannosylation Pathway in Disease: α-Dystroglycan and Forms of Muscular Dystrophy
Defective glycoconjugate construction: α-Dystroglycan is modified by O-mannosyl-initiated glycans that carry the ligands for components of the extracellular matrix, such as laminin. Mutations in the enzymes that assemble this glycan result in dystroglycanopathies, inherited disorders that are associated with muscle weakness and wasting, heart defects, and cognitive impairment, often leading to premature death.

Angewandte Chemie 50/2013: Electrifying
In this issue, C. N. R. Rao et al. review graphene analogues of inorganic layered materials, such as MoS2 and BN. How are they synthesized and what are their physical properties and applications? In a further Review, L.-J. Wan et al. shed new light on the electrochemistry, materials, and prospects of lithium–sulfur batteries. How can high energy densities be achieved? In a Minireview, Y.-T. Long et al. discuss mimicking natural ion channels with biological and solid-state nanopores for the detection and sequencing of DNA. The Highlights deal with the importance of size in catalysis with nanosized homogeneous gold (R. Gramage-Doria and J. N. H. Reek) and diastereodivergent dual synthesis (N. Maulide et al.). In an Editorial, W. T. S. Huck reflects on moving countries and changing subjects.
In the Communications section, P. Schwerdtfeger et al. challenge high-pressure experiments with ab initio simulations of superheated argon crystals (see picture). M. Klussmann et al. report synergistic effects of ketones and hydroperoxide in oxidative couplings. W. Cai et al. succeeded in a chelator-free synthesis of a dual-modality PET/MRI agent for cancer diagnosis. M. Tomás et al. investigated the H/D exchange on mobile and immobile water in non-porous, channel-free crystals of a coordination polymer.
Reversible Wound Closure
Dissolvable dendritic thioester hydrogel for sealing wounds
In first-aid situations, wounds must be quickly and effectively closed to stop blood loss and prevent infection. For treatment on arrival in a hospital, the temporary seal must be reopened, which often causes additional damage to the injured tissue. In the journal Angewandte Chemie, American scientists have now introduced a novel gel for sealing wounds. The gel can later be dissolved and gently removed.
