The synthesis of two galabioside (Golalpha1-4Gal) collections based on diversification at the O-1 and O-3' atoms is reported. The galabiosides were evaluated as inhibitors of hemagglutination of human erythrocytes by two strains of Escherichia coli that expressed the class I and class II PapG adhesins, respectively. The class I adhesin. was found to prefer aromatic substituents both at the O-1 and the O-3' position of the galabiose disaccharide. One galabioside, p-methoxyphenyl [3-O-(m-nitrobenzyl)-alpha-D-galacto-pyranosyl]-(1-4)-beta-D-galactopyro noside], had an IC50 value of 4.1 mum, which is the best inhibition of the class I adhesin to date.
