Two types of maleimidosugars as thiol-selective carbohydrates, 1-maleimidosugars and acetyl-linked maleimidosugars, were efficiently synthesized. They were coupled to glutathione, Fas peptide and bovine serium albumin (BSA) to prepare the corresponding glycosylated peptides and a protein via stable thioether linkages in a chemoselective manner.
