Molecules combining C60 and iminosugars: synthesis and multivalent effects on glycosidases inhibition

Structure/activity relationship

The main objective of the Sweet60s project is to provide a clear understanding of the significant inhibition enhancements observed for glycosidases with multivalent iminosugars. A better understanding of the multivalent effect for enzyme inhibition in general and the establishment of structure/property relationships for multivalent iminosugar-fullerene inhibitors in particular are of fundamental importance for a rational design of tailored multivalent molecules with desirable biological properties. In a second step, we will evaluate the potential of the multivalent approach towards therapeutic applications. Specifically, our objective is to apply for the first time the concept of multivalency to the field of pharmacological chaperones for the treatment of lysosomal diseases with the aim of improving significantly their enhancing activity.

1) preparation of the scaffolds
2) preparation of the iminosugars
3) preparation of the multivalent iminosugars
4) biological evaluation

The major synthetic problems have been solved for the preparation of the scaffolds as well as for the iminosugars.
Multivalent iminosugars of first generation have been prepared and their biological properties evaluated.

The different building blocks necessary for the preparation of the second generation multivalent inhibitors are available. The final synthetic steps are underway and the compounds will be available soon for biological investigations.

Chem. 2014, 10, 1406-1412 (invited paper for a special issue entitled “Multivalent glycosystems for nanoscience”)

A fullerene hexakis-adduct decorated with 12 iminosugar residues has been synthesized and systematically evaluated towards various glycosidases. Remarkably, this dodecavalent derivative displays a binding enhancement of up to 3 orders of magnitude over the corresponding monovalent ligand. This example represents the first evidence for a significant multivalent effect in the field of glycosidase inhibition. The Sweet60s project is based on this promising preliminary finding with the aim of rationalizing the significant inhibition enhancements observed for glycosidases with multivalent fullerene-based iminosugars. A better understanding of the multivalent effect for enzyme inhibition in general and the establishment of structure/property relationships for multivalent iminosugar-fullerene inhibitors in particular are of fundamental importance for a rational design of tailored multivalent molecules with desirable biological properties. In a second step, we will evaluate the potential of the multivalent approach towards therapeutic applications. Specifically, our objective is to apply for the first time the concept of multivalency to the field of pharmacological chaperones for the treatment of lysosomal diseases with the aim of improving significantly their enhancing activity.
