A series of three O-methylated UDP-GalNAc analogues have been synthesised using a divergent strategy from a 3,6-di-O-pivaloyl GlcNAc derivative. The biological activity of these probes toward polypeptide-alpha-GalNAc-transferase T1 has been investigated. This study shows that this glycosyltransferase exhibits a very high substrate specificity. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
