Biotin-iminosugar conjugates of different configuration such as D-gluco, D-galacto, L-ido as well as a furanoid representative in the D-manno configuration have been synthesised and exhibit powerful inhibition of beta-glucosidase from Agrobacterium sp. with K(i) values in the range of the respective parent compounds. Such molecular probes have potential for activity-based protein profiling taking advantage of the biotin-(strept)avidin interaction.
