AbstractThe solution conformation is presented for representatives of each of the major classes of asparaginyl oligosaccharides. In this report the conformation of the alpha(1-6)-linked moiety is described. The conformational properties of these glycopeptides were determined by high-resolution 1H nuclear magnetic resonance in conjunction with potential energy calculations. The NMR parameters that were used in this analysis were chemical shifts and nuclear Overhauser enhancements. Potential energy calculations were used to evaluate the preferred conformers available for the different linkages in glycopeptides and to draw conclusions and to draw conclusions about the behavior in solution of these molecules. For all classes, identical conformations were found for the 6-arm except for the torsional angle, omega, about the C5-C6 bond of the alpha 1-6 linkage. For high mannose and hybrid structures omega was found to be -60 degrees, for bisected biantennary complex structures omega was 180 degrees, and for complex biantennary structures averaging between -60 degrees and 180 degrees occurs
