Bile acids with a cyclopropyl-containing side chain. 3. Separation, identification, and properties of all four stereoisomers of 3 alpha,7 beta-dihydroxy-22,23-methylene-5 beta-cholan-24-oic acid.


3 alpha,7 beta-Dihydroxy-22,23-methylene-5 beta-cholan-24-oic acid (CUDCA) (2a), a side-chain cyclopropylog of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) was shown to be a mixture of four stereoisomers (CUDCA A-D). The 22S,23R, and 22R,23S diastereoisomers have been separated, their respective configurations assigned by 13C NMR spectroscopy, and original synthetic schemes… (More)
