C-2 Epimerization of N-Acetylglucosamine in an Oligosaccharides Derived from Heparan Sulfate, T. E. Toida, I. R. Vlahov, A. E. Smith, R. E. Hileman, R.J. Linhardt, Journal of Carbohydrate Chemistry, 15, 351-360, 1996.
The isolation of a heparan sulfate derived tetrasaccharide containing N-acetylmannosamine is described. The N-acetylmannosamine residue at the reducing terminus of heparin lyase derived tetrasaccharide is formed by base catalyzed C-2 epimerization of N-acetylglucosamine. This C-2 epimerization takes place under very mild conditions suggesting that this residue may be formed in small amounts under physiologic conditions.;
