Abstract

The conformational space of the tetrasaccharide α-L-Fuc-(1 → 2)-β-D-Gal-(1 → 3)-β-D-GalNAc-(1 → 3)-α-D-Gal1Pr (3) and of some overlapping di- and trisaccharide sequences was investigated with the aid of molecular mechanics energy minimizations, molecular-dynamics simulations, and 1H-NMR analysis. These investigations suggested that in compound 3 a certain rigidity of the first two glycosidic linkages (Fuc-Gal and Gal-GalNAc) is combined with the flexibility of the third one (GalNAc-Gal).
