Combining carbohydrate substitutions at bioinspired positions with multivalent presentation towards optimising lectin inhibitors: case study with calixarenes

Abstract

Carbohydrate derivatisation and glycocluster formation are both known to enhance avidity for lectin binding. Using a plant toxin and human adhesion/growth-regulatory lectins (inter- and intrafamily comparisons) the effect of their combination is examined. In detail, aromatic substituents were introduced at the 2-N or 3′-positions of N-acetyllactosamine and the products conjugated to two types of calix[n]arenes (n = 4, 6) viathiourea-linker chemistry.
