Dinucleotides TFAD (6), FFAD (7), and SFAD (8), isosteric NAD analogues derived, respectively, from C-nucleosides 5-beta-d-ribofuranosylthiophene-3-carboxamide (thiophenfurin, 1), 5-beta-d-ribofuranosylfuran-3-carboxamide (furanfurin, 2), and 5-beta-d-ribofuranosylselenophene-3-carboxamide (selenophenfurin, 5), were synthesized as human inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase (IMPDH) type I and II inhibitors. The synthesis was carried out by imidazole-catalyzed coupling of the 5'-monophosphate of 1… Expand
Synthesis, conformational analysis, and biological activity of new analogues of thiazole-4-carboxamide adenine dinucleotide (TAD) as IMP dehydrogenase inhibitors.
Biological evaluation of dinucleotides 1 and 2 as inhibitors of recombinant human IMPDH type I and type II resulted in a good activity and binding of T-3'-MeAD was comparable to that of parent compound TAD, while T-2-MeAD proved to be a weaker inhibitor. Expand
Synthesis, conformational analysis, and biological activity of C-thioribonucleosides related to tiazofurin.
From computational studies it was deduced that, among the C-nucleoside analogues of tiazofurin, activity requires an electrophilic sulfur adjacent to theC-glycosidic bond and an energetically favorable conformer around chi = 0 degrees. Expand
Novel adenosine-derived inhibitors of Cryptosporidium parvum inosine 5′-monophosphate dehydrogenase
Conformational analysis of compounds 3 and 4 suggested that N-H amide 3 binds to IMP-binding site in the DTT mediated manner, and four new derivatives free from cyclophane rings were synthesized. Expand
