Abstract

The glyco-hexapeptide sequence H-Val-(GalNAc-alpha)Thr-His-Pro-Gly-Tyr-OH, was synthesized in solution by the segment condensation procedure and the stepwise procedure. A peracetylated, O-galactosaminyl threonine derivative was used for incorporating the glycosylated amino acid residue into the peptide chain. A consistent racemization occurred during the acylation of H-His-Pro-Gly-Tyr(Bzl)-OBzl with Z-Val-[GalNAc(Ac)3-alpha]Thr-OH by the BOP-HOBt procedure and the D-allothreonine containing glyco-hexapeptide was isolated in about 20% yield. Stepwise elongation of the C-terminal tetrapeptide with Fmoc-[GalNAc(Ac)3-alpha]Thr-OH and Z-Val-OH, in the presence of the same coupling reagents, yielded the L-threonine containing diastereoisomer without detectable racemization. A side product, the N(im)-ethoxy-carbonylated hexapeptide derivative, formed during the EEDQ-mediated condensation of Fmoc-[GalNAc(Ac)3-alpha]Thr-OH with the C-terminal tetrapeptide, was isolated and characterized. Preliminary studies showed that the synthetic glycohexapeptide is a good competitive inhibitor of the binding of the FDC-6 monoclonal antibody to the oncofetal fibronectin, supporting the idea that it should represent the minimum essential structure required for the FDC-6 activity.
