Synthesis of a Library of Fucosylated Glycoclusters and Determination of their Binding toward Pseudomonas aeruginosa Lectin B (PA-IIL) Using a DNA-Based Carbohydrate Microarray

Abstract : Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) is a Gram negative opportunistic pathogen and is the major pathogen encounter in the cystic fibrosis (CF) lung airways. It often leads to chronic respiratory infection despite aggressive antibiotic therapy due to the emergence of resistant strains and to the formation of biofilm. The lectin PA-IIL (LecB) is a fucose-specific lectin from PA suspected to be involved in host recognition/adhesion and in biofilm formation. Thus, it can be foreseen as a potential therapeutic target. Herein, 16 fucosylated glycoclusters with antenna-like, linear, or crownlike spatial arrangements were synthesized using a combination of DNA solid-phase synthesis and alkyne azide 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition (CuAAC). Their binding properties toward PA-IIL were then evaluated based on DNA directed immobilization (DDI) carbohydrate microarray. Our results suggested that the antenna-like scaffold was preferred to linear or crown-like glycoclusters. Among the crown-like carbohydrate centered fucosylated glycoclusters, mannose-based core was better than glucose- and galactose-based ones. The influence of the linker arm was also evaluated, and long linkers between fucoses and the core led to a slight better binding than the short ones.
