A series of C-glucosides with various heteroaromatics has been synthesized and its inhibitory activity toward SGLTs was evaluated. Upon screening several compounds, the benzothiophene derivative (14a) was found to have potent inhibitory activity against SGLT2 and good selectivity versus SGLT1. Through further optimization of 14a, a novel benzothiophene(More)
Here, a series of C-glucosides with azulene rings in the aglycon moiety was synthesized and the inhibitory activities toward hSGLT1 and hSGLT2 were evaluated. Starting from the azulene derivative 7 which had relatively good SGLT2 inhibitory activity, compound 8a which has a 3-[(azulen-2-yl)methyl]phenyl group was identified as a lead compound for further(More)
