Synthesis and biological activity of acyclic anlogues of nojirimycin

Abstract

A series of acyclic compounds has been prepared which comprises compounds that mimic key structural elements of nojirimycin 1 and 1-deoxynojirimycin 2, both of which are highly effective glucosidase inhibitors, in order to ascertain if similar biological activity can be obtained with simpler structures. All of the compounds are competitive inhibitors of yeast α-glucosidase, with varying degrees of effectiveness, but none of them, in contrast to 1-deoxynojirimycin 2, show significant anti-HIV activity.
