Abstract

A sea cucumber ganglioside analogue 7 (NGNAα2→6Glcβ1→1Cer), which contains a phytosphingosine as a long-chain base and an α-hydroxy fatty acid, has been synthesized. Coupling of the methyl 2-thioglycoside derivative 5 of N-glycolylneuraminic acid with a cerebroside derivative 3, prepared from acanthacerebroside A (1), afforded protected ganglioside analogue 6, which was deprotected to give the corresponding ganglioside 7.
