The reaction of 70 unprotected, diversely functionalized free reducing sugars with methoxyamine-appended colchicine led to the production of a 58-member glycorandomized library. High-throughput cytotoxicity assays revealed glycosylation to modulate specificity and potency. Library members were also identified which, unlike the parent natural product (a destabilizer), stabilized in vitro tubulin polymerization in a manner similar to taxol. This study highlights a simple extension of neoglycorandomization toward amine-bearing scaffolds and the potential benefit of glycosylating nonglycosylated natural products.
