The ribonucleoside building block, N²-isobutyryl-2'-O-propargyl-3'-O-levulinyl guanosine, was prepared from commercial N²-isobutyryl-5'-O-(4,4'-dimethoxytrityl)-2'-O-propargyl guanosine in a yield of 91%. The propargylated guanylyl(3'-5')guanosine phosphotriester was synthesized from the reaction of N²-isobutyryl-2'-O-propargyl-3'-O-levulinyl guanosine with N²-isobutyryl-5'-O-(4,4'-dimethoxytrityl)-2'-O-tert-butyldimethylsilyl-3'-O-[(2-cyanoethyl)-N,N-diisopropylaminophosphinyl] guanosine and isolated in a yield of 88% after P(III) oxidation, 3'-/5'-deprotection, and purification. The propargylated guanylyl(3'-5')guanosine phosphotriester was phosphitylated using 2-cyanoethyl tetraisopropylphosphordiamidite and 1H-tetrazole and was followed by an in situ intramolecular cyclization to give a propargylated c-di-GMP triester, which was isolated in a yield of 40% after P(III) oxidation and purification. Complete N-deacylation of the guanine bases and removal of the 2-cyanoethyl phosphate protecting groups from the propargylated c-di-GMP triester were performed by treatment with aqueous ammonia at ambient temperature. The final 2'-desilylation reaction was effected by exposure to triethylammonium trihydrofluoride affording the desired propargylated c-di-GMP diester, the purity of which exceeded 95%. Biotinylation of the propargylated c-di-GMP diester was easily accomplished through its cycloaddition reaction with a biotinylated azide derivative under click conditions to produce the biotinylated c-di-GMP conjugate of interest in an isolated yield of 62%.
