Glycolipids play important biological roles mainly in biological membranes, but their functions at the molecular level remain to be fully established. A chemical biology approach using exogenously added glycolipid probes would be promising, but the possibility of cleavage by cellular glycohydrolases complicates the interpretation of results. Thus, there is a need for non-hydolyzable analogues. In the present study, we designed and synthesized GM3 analogues resistant to GM3-degrading sialidase by replacing the O-sialoside linkage with a C-sialoside linkage. The bioactivity of the analogues was also investigated.
