Conception et synthèse d’iminosucres di- à tétravalents comme sondes mécanistiques et agents thérapeutiques potentiels

Abstract : Because multivalent iminosugars represent, as potent glycosidase inhibitors, privileged structures for the design of novel drugs, we took a particular interest in this class of compounds for the treatment of two rare genetic diseases. The first research topic was dedicated to the synthesis of di- to tetravalent iminosugars in the 1-deoxymannojirimycin series in order to inhibit the endoplasmic reticulum α1,2-mannosidase I involved in the destruction of delF508-CFTR, the mutant protein responsible of cystic fibrosis. A strong multivalent effect for restoring its activity in cells was reported with a trivalent analogue based on pentaerythritol. This submicromolar corrector was found to be 140-fold more potent than the corresponding monovalent model. The second research topic focused on the identification of novel pharmacological chaperones of the β-glucocerebrosidase, the lysosomal enzyme involved in Gaucher’s disease. For this purpose, we developed a series of heterodivalent iminosugars designed to both bind to the active site and a secondary site of the enzyme. This goal could not be reached yet, nevertheless we identified monovalent chaperones which were able to fourfold increase β-glucocerebrosidase activity in G202R cell lines. Next to these main research topics, a mechanistic probe based on a multivalent C-glycoside was also developed to investigate the multivalent effect of iminosugar clusters in glycosidase inhibition.
