Abstract—

3-Aminopropyl glycosides of α-D-mannopyranosyl-(1→2)-α-D-mannopyranosyl-(1→2)-α-D-mannopyranosyl-(1→2)-α-D-mannopyranose, α-D-mannopyranosyl-(1→3)-α-D-mannopyranosyl-(1→2)-α-D-mannopyranosyl-(1→2)-α-D-mannopyranose, and α-D-mannopyranosyl-(1→2)-[α-D-mannopyranosyl-(1→3)]-α-D-mannopyranosyl-(1→2)-α-D-mannopyranosyl-(1→2)-α-D-mannopyranose were efficiently synthesized starting from ethyl 2-O-acetyl(benzoyl)-3,4,6-tri-O-benzyl-1-thio-α-D-mannopyranoside, ethyl 4,6-di-O-benzyl-2-O-benzoyl-1-thio-α-D-mannopyranoside, ethyl 4,6-di-O-benzyl-2,3-di-O-benzoyl-1-thio-α-D-mannopyranoside, and 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-benzoyl-α-D-mannopyranosyl bromide. The oligosaccharide chains synthesized correspond to the three structural types of side chains of mannan from Candida albicans cell wall. A conjugate of the third pentasaccharide with bovine serum albumin was prepared using the squarate method.
