The hybrid analogs of 1,25-dihydroxyergocalciferol (PRI-5201 and PRI-5202) were synthesized as potential anticancer agents using a convergent strategy. The analogs were designed by combining a 19-nor modification of the A-ring with the homologated and rigidified ergocalciferol-like side-chain of the previously obtained analogs PRI-1906 and PRI-1907. The(More)
A series of analogs of 1,25-dihydroxyergocalciferol (1-4) was synthesized and screened for their antiproliferative activity in vitro. The structure of new analogs was designed based on biological activity of the previously obtained side-chain modified analogs of vitamin D(2) and D(3). The analogs were obtained by the Julia olefination of C(22)-vitamin D(More)
Analogs of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 with a reversed configuration at C-1 or C-24 and E or Z geometry of the double bond at C-22 in the side chain or at C-5 in the triene system were examined for their antiproliferative activity in vitro against a spectrum of various human cancer cell lines. The analogs coded PRI-2201 (calcipotriol), PRI-2202 and PRI-2205,(More)
Diastereomeric and geometric analogs of calcipotriol, PRI-2202 and PRI-2205, were synthesized as advanced intermediates from vitamin D C-22 benzothiazoyl sulfones and side-chain aldehydes using our convergent strategy. Calcitriol, calcipotriol (PRI-2201) and tacalcitol (PRI-2191) were used as the reference compounds. Among a series of tested analogs the(More)
An improved convergent strategy was developed for the synthesis of the previously obtained side-chain extended and rigidified analogs of 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D2, PRI-1906 and PRI-1907. New (24Z) geometric isomers of the analogs, PRI-1916 and PRI-1917, were also obtained and identified. These side-chain isomers were separable by flash chromatography, as(More)
Analogs of 1,25-dihydroxyergocalciferol, modified in the side-chain and in the A-ring, were tested for their antiproliferative activity against a series of human cancer cell lines in vitro and in vivo toxicity. The proliferation inhibition caused by the analogs was higher than that of the parent compounds, while the toxicity, measured as the serum calcium(More)
A synthesis and an in vitro evaluation of side chain-unsaturated analogs 3 and 4 of 24a, 24b-dihomo-1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol (1) are described, Novel C23a, 24-vitamin D synthons (sulfone 10 and aldehyde 11) were used for the synthesis of analog 4 and for the efficient preparation of the parent compound 1. The synthetic approach developed allows the use(More)
Geometric isomers (5E,7E) of major active metabolites of vitamin D3 [1alpha,25(OH)2D3 and (24R)-1,24(OH)2D3] were synthesized by a new convenient procedure. Vitamin D triene system of the metabolites was first derivatized as a Diels-Alder adduct. Removal of the triene protecting group, in a key synthetic step, yielded the title compounds PRI-2208 and(More)
There is a long lasting controversy over the biological activity of vitamin D2 as compared to vitamin D3 in terms of maintaining of calcium homeostasis and raising the level of circulating 25-OH-D. To shed more light on this relationship we synthesized 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D2, by a novel convergent strategy, to compare this compound directly with the(More)
1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1,25D), a steroid hormone which regulates calcium/phosphate homeostasis, has a broad spectrum of anti-cancer activities, including differentiation of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells. In order to avoid undesirable side effects such as hypercalcemia, low-calcemic analogues should be produced for therapeutic purposes. In this(More)
