In order to develop fluorogenic enzyme substrate for quick diaganosis of mucopolysaccharidosis type I, 6-chloro-4-methylumbelliferyl-α-L-idopyranosiduronic acid was synthesized from commercially available D-glucurono-6,3-lactone. Firstly, 1,2,3,4-tetra-O-acetyl-β-D-glucoronate methyl ester was brominated and subsequently reduced with radical reaction to give 1,2,3,4-tetra-O-acetyl-L-idopyranuronate methyl ester. Then 6-chloro-4-methylumbelliferyl-α-L-idopyra-nosiduronic acid was synthesized using Mitsunobu reaction as the key step. The related structures of key intermediates were confirmed with X-ray crystallography. The preliminary biological test proved that the synthesized enzyme substrate could be used for quick detection of α-L-iduronidase.
