Abstract

Syntheses are described of two new tuftsin derivatives containing a 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-D-galactopyranosyl unit alpha- or beta-glycosidically linked to the threonine's hydroxy side chain function and of the glycosylated undecapeptide corresponding to the tuftsin region of the heavy chain of IgG (amino acid sequence 289-299). The glycosylated tuftsins were synthesized by the solution procedure. Fmoc-[Gal NAc(Ac)3-alpha]Thr-OH and Fmoc-[GalNAc(Ac)3-beta]Thr-OH were allowed to react with H-Lys(Z)-Pro-Arg(NO2)-OBzl by the mixed anhydride procedure and the resulting glycosylated tetrapeptides were fully deblocked by catalytic hydrogenation followed by treatment with potassium cyanide, purified by ion exchange chromatography and characterized by analytical HPLC, elemental and amino acid analyses, optical rotation, and proton NMR spectroscopy. Synthesis of the glycosylated undecapeptide was achieved by the continuous flow solid phase procedure on 4-hydroxymethylphenoxyacetyl-norleucyl derivatized Kieselguhr-supported resin. Fmoc-amino acid symmetrical anhydrides or pentafluorophenyl esters, in the presence of N-hydroxybenzotriazole, were used as the acylating agents. To mimic the native sequence of the tuftsin region at the Fc-domain of immunoglobulin G a 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-beta-D-glucopyranosyl unit was N-glycosidically linked to the amide side chain of Asn 297. The glycosylated asparagine residue was introduced as N2-fluorenylmethyloxycarbonyl-N4-(2-acetamido-3,4, 6-tri-O-acetyl-2-deoxy-beta-D-glucopyranosyl)-asparagine pentafluorophenyl ester. After cleavage from the resin the glycopeptide was deprotected, purified by ion exchange chromatography, and characterized by analytical HPLC, amino acid analysis, high voltage electrophoresis, and proton NMR. The conformational features of the glyco-undecapeptide were determined by circular dichroism measurements both in water and in 98% trifluoroethanol. Results of biological assays will be published elsewhere.
