Abstract: New fluorescently-labelled sp2-iminosugars based on the 5N,6S-[N′-(4-aminobutyl)iminomethylidene]-6-thionojirimycin skeleton have been synthesized as photoprobes to monitor glycosidase binding. Dansyl, dapoxyl and coumarin fluorophores were appended to the terminal amino group at the N′-substituent by either sulfonamide or amide bridging reaction. All the conjugates behaved as strong (low micromolar to nanomolar) and selective inhibitors of β-glucosidases (almonds and bovine liver) and naringinase, in agreement with the inhibition pattern previously encountered for related iso(thio)urea-type bicyclic sp2-iminosugars. The presence of the fluorescent probe allows real-time and continuous monitoring of β-glucosidase inhibition by fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), taking advantage of the intrinsic tryptophan-associated fluorescence of the protein.
