Novel proapoptotic Smac mimics/IAPs inhibitors have been designed, synthesized and characterized. Computational models and structural studies (crystallography, NMR) have elucidated the SAR of this class of inhibitors, and have permitted further optimization of their properties. In vitro characterization (XIAP BIR3 and linker-BIR2-BIR3 binding, cytotox(More)
New unnatural sugar nucleotides, UDP-Fuc and CDP-Fuc were synthesized from fucose-beta-1-phosphate and nucleotide monophosphates activated as morpholidates. Furthermore, a nucleotide analogue was prepared by phosphorylation of 1-(beta-D-ribofuranosyl)cyanuric acid, itself obtained as a protected derivative by condensation of the persilylated derivative of(More)
We investigated the specificity of glycosyltransferases toward donor substrates in two complementary directions. First we prepared simple N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine 1-diphosphates: methyl-(2-acetamido-2-deoxy-alpha-D-glucopyranosyl)-diphosphate, benzyl-(2-acetamido-2-deoxy-alpha-D-glucopyranosyl)-diphosphate,(More)
An efficient and convergent method for the synthesis of mannose-1-phosphate prodrugs is described as a potential therapy for congenital disorders of glycosylation-Ia (CDG-Ia). The key feature of the proposed approach is the silver assisted nucleophilic substitution of 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-protected-alpha-d-mannopyranosyl bromides with various silver phosphate(More)
