Resumo

alpha-Dystroglycan (alpha-DG) mucins are essential for maintenance of the structural and functional stability of the muscle fiber and, when hypoglycosylated, they are directly involved in pathological processes such as dystroglycanopathies. Thus, this work reports the synthesis of the novel 1,2,3-triazole-derived glycosyl amino acids alpha GlcNAc-1-O-triazol-2Man alpha-ThrOH (1) and Gal-beta 1,4-alpha GlcNAc-1-O-triazol-2Man alpha-ThrOH (2), followed by solid-phase assembly to get the corresponding glycopeptides NHAcThrVal{[}alpha GlcNAc-1-triazol-2Man alpha]ThrIleArgGlyOH (3) and NHAcThrVal{[}Gal-beta 1,4-alpha GlcNAc-1-triazol-2Man alpha]ThrIleArgGlyOH (4) as analogs of alpha-DG mucins. The glycosyl amino acids 1 (72%) and 2 (35%) were synthesized by Cu(I)-assisted 1,3-dipolar azide-alkyne cycloaddition reactions (CuAAC) between the azide-glycosyl amino acid alpha ManN(3)-FmocThrOBn (5) and the corresponding alkyne-functionalyzed sugars 2'-propynyl-alpha GlcNAc (6) and 2'-propynyl-Gal-beta 1,4-alpha GlcNAc (7), followed by hydrogenation reactions. Subsequently, glycopeptides 3 (23%) and 4 (12%) were obtained by solid phase synthesis, involving sequential couplings of Fmoc-protected amino acids or the glycosyl amino acids 1 and 2, followed by cleavage from resin, N-acetylation and O-deacetylation (NaOMe) reactions. Lastly, enzymatic galactosylation of glycopeptide 3 with bovine beta-1,4-GalT showed that it was not a substrate for this enzyme, which could be better elucidated by docking simulations with beta-1,4-GalT.
