Synthesis of four novel (4'R)- and (4'S)- 2'-{[(E)-3β-hydroxyandrost-5-en-17-ylidene]-methyl} oxazolines, comprising 4'-hydroxymethyl (1 and 2) and 4'-methoxycarbonyl (3 and 4) substituents is presented. Reaction of 17α-bromo-21-iodo-3β-acetoxypregn-5-en-20-one with either (L)-serine methyl ester, or (D)-serine methyl ester resulted in methyl(More)
Five 4,5-dihydro-1,3-oxazole derivatives of [17(20)E]-21-norpregnene, comprising 3β-hydroxy-5-ene (1), 3,6-dioxo-4-ene (2), 3-oxo-4-ene (3), 3α,5α-cyclo-6-oxo (4), 3β-hydroxy-6-oxo (5) fragments were synthesized. Synthesis was conducted with improved procedure, based on reaction of suitably protected [17(20)E]-pregnen-21-oic acids with ethanolamine in(More)
According to recently published results, cinnamic hydroxamic acid (CHA) inhibits replication of hepatitis C virus (HCV). We synthesized a structural analogue of CHA, i.e., (Z)-N-hydroxy-3-methoxy3-phenylacrylamide, which inhibited HCV replication five times more selectively than CHA. It was found that both compounds did not inhibit deacetylation of(More)
Structure-specific ligands are convenient tools for the recognition, targeting or probing of non-canonical DNA structures. Porphyrin derivatives exhibit a preference for interaction with G-quadruplex (G4) structures over canonical duplex DNA and are able to cause photoinducible damage to nucleic acids. Here, we show that Zn(II)(More)
The facile synthesis of six [17(20)Z]- and [17(20)E]-isomeric 3β-hydroxy-pregna-5,17(20)-dien-21-oyl amides and three [17(20)E]-3β-hydroxy-2-[prergna-5,17(20)-dien-20-yl]-oxazolines from pregnenolone is presented. The synthetic scheme consists of transformation of pregnenolone into the known 17α-bromo-21-iodo-3β-acetoxypregn-5-en-20-one followed by reaction(More)
