AB - A new family of tandem facial glucosides/maltosides (TFGs/TFMs) for membrane protein manipulation was prepared. The best detergent varied depending on the hydrophobic thickness of the target protein, but etherbased TFMs (TFMC0E, TFMC3E, and TFMC5E) were notable for their ability to confer higher membrane protein stability than the previously developed amidebased TFA1 (P.S. Chae, K. Gotfryd, J. Pacyna, L.J.W. Miercke, S.G.F. Rasmussen, R.A. Robbins, R.R. Rana, C.J. Loland, B. Kobilka, R. Stroud, B. Byrne, U. Gether, S.H. Gellman, J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2010, 132, 16750–16752). Thus, this study not only introduces novel agents with the potential to be used in membrane protein research but also highlights the importance of both the hydrophobic length and linker functionality of the detergent in stabilizing membrane proteins.
