An Improved Synthetic Route to the Potent Angiogenesis Inhibitor Benzyl Manα(1→3)-Manα(1→3)-Manα(1→3)-Manα(1→2)-Man Hexadecasulfate
Liu, Ligong, Johnstone, Ken, Fairweather, Jon, & Ferro, Vito (2009) An Improved Synthetic Route to the Potent Angiogenesis Inhibitor Benzyl Manα(1→3)-Manα(1→3)-Manα(1→3)-Manα(1→2)-Man Hexadecasulfate. Australian Journal of Chemistry, 62(6), pp. 546-552.
An improved synthetic route to α(1→3)/α(1→2)-linked mannooligosaccharides has been developed and applied to a more efficient preparation of the potent anti-angiogenic sulfated pentasaccharide, benzyl Manα(1→3)-Manα(1→3)-Manα(1→3)-Manα(1→2)-Man hexadecasulfate, using only two monosaccharide building blocks. Of particular note are improvements in the preparation of both building blocks and a simpler, final deprotection strategy. The route also provides common intermediates for the introduction of aglycones other than benzyl, either at the building block stage or after oligosaccharide assembly. The anti-angiogenic activity of the synthesized target compound was confirmed via the rat aortic assay.
