Abstract: Gaucher disease (GD) is the most prevalent lysosomal-storage disorder, it is caused by mutations of acid β-glucosidase (β-glucocerebrosidase; β-Glu). Recently, we found that bicyclic nojirimycin (NJ) derivatives of the sp2-iminosugar type, including the 6-thio-N′-octyl-(5N,6S)-octyliminomethylidene derivative (6S-NOI-NJ), behaved as very selective competitive inhibitors of the lysosomal β-Glu and exhibited remarkable chaperone activities for several GD mutations. To obtain information about the cellular uptake pathway and intracellular distribution of this family of chaperones, we have synthesized a fluorescent analogue that maintains the fused piperidine–thiazolidine bicyclic skeleton and incorporates a dansyl group in the N′-substituent, namely 6-thio-(5N,6S)-[4-(N′-dansylamino)butyliminomethylidene]nojirimycin (6S-NDI-NJ). This structural modification does not significantly modify the biological activity of the glycomimetic as a chemical chaperone. Our study showed that 6S-NDI-NJ is mainly located in lysosome-related organelles in both normal and GD fibroblasts, and the fluorescent intensity of 6S-NDI-NJ in the lysosome is related to the β-Glu concentration level. 6S-NDI-NJ also can enter cultured neuronal cells and act as a chaperone. Competitive inhibition studies of 6S-NDI-NJ uptake in fibroblasts showed that high concentrations of D-glucose have no effect on chaperone internalization, suggesting that it enters the cells through glucose-transporter-independent mechanisms.
