Changes in the content of fructose-2,6-bisphosphate, a modulator of glycolytic flux, also affect other metabolic fluxes such as the non-oxidative pentose phosphate pathway. Since this is the main source of precursors for biosynthesis in proliferating cells, PFK-2/FBPase-2 has been proposed as a potential target for neoplastic treatments. Here we provide(More)
Structure-guided optimization was used to design new analogues of 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D₃ bearing the main side chain at C12 and a shorter second hydroxylated chain at C17. The new compounds 5a-c were efficiently synthesized from ketone 9 (which is readily accessible from the Inhoffen-Lythgoe diol) with overall yields of 15%, 6%, and 3% for 5a, 5b, and(More)
