The syntheses of furan and thiophene analogues of tiazofurin (furanfurin and thiophenfurin, respectively) are described. Direct stannic chloride-catalyzed C-glycosylation of ethyl 3-furan-carboxylate (6) or ethyl 3-thiophencarboxylate (18) with 1,2,3,5-tetra-O-acetyl-D-ribofuranose gave 2- and 5-glycosylated regioisomers, as a mixture of alpha- and(More)
Benzamide riboside (BR) exhibits potent antitumor activity in a variety of cultured human tumor cells. The drug is metabolized to benzamide adenine dinucleotide (BAD), which in turn functions as a selective inhibitor of IMP dehydrogenase (IMPDH) activity with a Ki of 0.118 microM. In vitro, BR is a more potent antitumor inhibitor of IMPDH than tiazofurin,(More)
A series of aryloxazole, thiazole, and isoxazole derivatives was synthesized as vascular-targeting anticancer agents. Antiproliferative activity and tumor vascular-disrupting activity of all of the synthesized compounds were tested in vitro using various human cancer cell lines and HUVECs (human umbilical vein endothelial cells). Several compounds with an(More)
