Oligosaccharides represent potentially useful scaffolds for the development of peptidomimetics. We report here the design and synthesis of functionalized trisaccharides modeled after an α-helical 15-mer peptide region of p53 which binds to its cellular regulator MDM2. The trisaccharide scaffold was obtained efficiently by applying the sulfoxide glycosylation reaction as a key methodology.
