Glycosylated antitumor ether lipids (GAELs), analogs of 1-O-octadecyl-2-O-methyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (1, ET-18-OCH3, edelfosine), were synthesized in good overall yields by glycosylation of 1-O-alkyl-2-O-methyl-sn-glycerol and tested for in vitro antineoplastic activity against a variety of murine and human tumor cell lines. Stereospecific glycosylation was achieved by the use of 2-O-acetyl-3,4,6-tri-O-benzylglucopyranosyl and -mannopyranosyl trichloroacetimidates as donors, with… 
Synthesis of 2-(Substituted Benzylideneamino)-4-(4′-hydroxyphenyl) Thiazoles and Their O-Glucosides
2-Amino-4-(4′-hydroxyphenyl) thiazole 1a was prepared from reaction between p-hydroxyacetophenone, thiourea, and iodine; compound 1a was treated with several (aryl/hetro aryl) aldehydes to form
An active endocytosis pathway is required for the cytotoxic effects of glycosylated antitumor ether lipids.
The results of the study show that GAELs are taken up by endocytosis and an active endocytic pathway is required for the formation of large acidic vacuoles byGAELs and manifestation of their cytotoxic effects.
Synthesis of 2‐(sulfamoylphenyl)‐4′‐(iminoaryl/hetroaryl)‐4‐(4′′‐hydroxyphenyl)‐thiazoles and their O‐glucosides
The sulfon-amide drugs were the first effective chemotherapeuticagents to be used systematically for the prevention and cure of bacterial infections in man and the main fea-ture of these compounds lies in the high therapeutics index and low toxicity.
A glycosylated antitumor ether lipid kills cells via paraptosis-like cell death.
The data suggest thatGAELs may activate autophagy; however, GAELs do not kill cells by apoptosis orAutophagy but rather by a paraptosis-like cell death mechanism.
Synthetic β-1,2-Mannosyloxymannitol Glycolipid from the Fungus Malassezia pachydermatis Signals through Human Mincle.
The total synthesis of a complex β-1,2-mannosyloxymannitol glycolipid from Malassezia pachydermatis 44-2 is reported, which constitutes the first fungal metabolite identified that can signal through the human Mincle receptor, providing new insights into antifungal immunity.
The Barton-McCombie Reaction
Deoxygenations of alcohols, i.e., processes that replace a hydroxyl group with hydrogen at a saturated carbon, find applications in both total synthesis and the systematic modifications of natural
Hydrogen Bond Synchronized Dual Activation Enables the Unified β-Selective O-Glycosylation Inside a Molecular Capsule
It is demonstrated that a molecular capsule catalyzes the highlychallenging selective formation of b-glycosides independent of the substrate’s substitution pattern and configuration, which is unprecedented for man-made catalysts.
A novel donor for the synthesis of 2-deoxy-β-glycosides
Vinyl glycoside 2, available in two steps from tribenzyl glucal, is found to be an excellent glycosyl donor for the synthesis of 2-deoxy-β-glycosides.
Glycosidated phospholipids: uncoupling of signalling pathways at the plasma membrane
The potential of glycosidated phospholipids, especially Ino‐C2‐PAF, as a promising new group of drugs for the treatment of hyperproliferative and migration‐based skin diseases is highlighted.
