An efficient synthesis of N-glycolyl Park’s nucleotide, a Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) specific peptidoglycan precursor, analog-fluorescein conjugate, is achieved. A fluorescent conjugated Mtb Park’s nucleotide analog 5 would be a very useful probe for the characterization of Mtb MraY, catalyzing the biosynthesis of lipid I from UDP-N-acyl-Mur-pentapeptide, and for the development of high-throughput screening (HTS) for Mtb MraY inhibitors.
