Synthesis of a neoglycoprotein containing the Lewis X analogous trisaccharide beta-D-GalpNAc-(1-->4)[alpha-L-Fucp-(1-->3)]-beta-D-GlcpNAc.

The trisaccharide allyl glycoside 36 and related disaccharide part structures have been prepared using the 2-trichloroacetamido-2-deoxy-alpha-D-galactopyranosyl trichloroacetimidate derivative 9 as glycosyl donor under promotion with TMSOTf or Sn(OTf)2, respectively, to produce the beta-(1-->4) linkage to suitably protected glucosamine derivatives in fair yields. Fucosylation was effected employing the ethyl 1-thio glycosyl donor 20 in the presence of IDCP. Deprotection of the intermediates afforded the disaccharide allyl glycosides beta-D-GalpNAc-(1-->4)- beta-D-GlcpNAc 13, beta-D-GalpNClAc-(1-->4)-beta-D-GlcpNAc 14, alpha-L-Fucp-(1-->3)-beta-D-GlcpNAc 24, alpha-L-Fucp-(1-->4)-beta-D- GlcpNAc 31 and the branched trisaccharide allyl glycoside beta-D-GalpNAc-(1-->4)[alpha-L-Fucp-(1-->3)]-beta-D-GlcpNAc 36. The trisaccharide which corresponds to a structural motif occurring in N-glycoprotein glycans from human urokinase, human recombinant protein C, phospholipase A2 as well as O-glycans, was converted into a neoglycoprotein following introduction of a cysteamine-derived spacer group and subsequent activation with thiophosgene.[1]
