A novel glycosphingolipid, β-D-Manp-(1→4)-[(α-L-Fucp-(1→3)]-β-D-Glcp-(1→1)-Cer, from the millipede, Parafontaria laminata armigera, was synthesized. A key reaction of this synthetic procedure is the formation of a spiro-orthoester and its reduction for β-selective mannosylation. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd.
