A radioiodinated artificial substrate of N-acetylglucosaminyl- transferase V (GnT-V), 2-(4-iodophenyl)ethyl 2-acetamido-2-deoxy-β-D-glucopyranosyl-(1→2)-α-D-mannopyranosyl-(1→6)-β-D-glucopyranoside ([125I]1a), was alternatively synthesized by using the glycosylation reaction from the non-reducing end, in which a glycosyl sulfoxide and a thioglycoside were employed as the glycosyl acceptor and donor, respectively. In addition, two derivatives of [125I]1a having different lengths of alkyl chain ([125I]1b, [125I]1c) were prepared in the same way to increase the permeability of the substrates through the cell membrane and into the Golgi apparatus, where GnT-V acts to modify glycoconjugates by transferring N-acetylglucosamine units from UDP-GlcNAc.
