The synthesis of neoglycophospholipid conjugates via reductive amination of omega-oxoalkylglycosides and phosphatidylethanolamines.


PMID 9658565

Abstract

Phospholipid conjugates of mono- and disaccharides tethered with an n-decanyl spacer were efficiently synthesized via an improved reductive amination of deprotected omega-oxodecanyl beta-glycosides and phosphatidylethanolamines with or without alkenyl groups. The omega-oxodecanyl beta-glycosides were prepared by stereoselective glycosidation of glycosyl halides with 1, 10-decanediol followed by pyridinium dichromate oxidation. The acetyl groups of the omega-oxodecanyl beta-glycosides were removed with sodium methoxide prior to their conjugation with phosphatidylethanolamines.
