Dendritic cells are potent antigen-presenting cells that express several membrane lectins, including the mannose receptor and DC-SIGN ( dendritic cell-specific ICAM-3-grabbing nonintegrin). To identify highly specific ligands for these dendritic cell receptors, oligosaccharides were converted into glycosynthons (Os-1) and were used to prepare oligolysine-based glycoclusters, Os-[Lys(Os)](n)-Ala-Cys-NH2. Clusters containing two to six dimannosides as well as clusters containing four or five pentasaccharides (Lewis(a) or Lewis(x)) or hexasaccharides (Lewis(b)) were synthesized.
