Design, synthesis, and evaluation of beta-galactosylceramide mimics promoting beta-glucocerebrosidase activity in keratinocytes.


We have established an efficient synthesis of mimics of beta-galactosylceramide (beta-GalCer) increasing a beta-glucocerebrosidase (beta-GlcCer'ase) activity that associates with the skin barrier function. Among the synthetic beta-GalCer analogues (6a-6e) described herein, compound 6e exhibited a potent effect on the activation of beta-GlcCer'ase function… (More)
