Abstract
Oxime ligation is an effective conjugation strategy for biomolecules and polymers in aqueous solution. The reaction is chemoselective, joining an aldehyde or ketone electrophile with an aminooxy nucleophile. The oxime linkage is thermally and hydrolytically stable under most biological conditions. The most common problem with oxime ligation is that the reaction rate is relatively slow at biological pH. Several groups have improved the rates of oxime ligation using organic catalysts, such as aniline. These catalysts are often more effective at low pH, and can substantially improve the rates of conjugation. In this thesis, we explore modified organic catalysts that contain an aniline nucleophile and an aminooxy nucleophile on the same scaffold. These compounds were designed to act as ligation reagents that could form an oxime linkage in the absence of an exogenous catalyst. We synthesized the ligation reagents, and measured their rate of reaction with benzaldehyde as a model substrate. We find that the ligation reagents can achieve as much as five-fold acceleration relative to the un-catalyzed reactions, and are between 2-3 fold faster than catalysis with aniline alone. We propose a rationale for these enhanced rates, and propose that these reagents could be used to improve protein bioconjugation strategies.
