Members of the actinomycetes produce 1D-1-O-(2-[N-acetyl-L-cysteinyl]amino-2-deoxy-alpha-D-glucopyranosyl)-myo-inositol or mycothiol 1 as principal low molecular mass thiol. Chemical synthesis of a biosynthetic precursor of mycothiol, the pseudodisaccharide 1D-1-O-(2-amino-2-deoxy-alpha-D-glucopyranosyl)-myo-inositol 13 was achieved by the following steps:(More)
Thioglucosides of cysteine show variable stability depending on the nature of the protecting groups on the glycosyl donor. Armed protecting groups (benzyl) lead to products that decompose readily while disarmed protecting groups (acetyl) lead to more stable products. Since this armed/disarmed effect of the protecting group on the stability of the(More)
