Chiral vinylphosphonate and phosphonate analogues of the immunosuppressive agent FTY720.


PMID 19296586

Abstract

The first enantioselective synthesis of chiral isosteric phosphonate analogues of FTY720 is described. One of these analogues, FTY720-(E)-vinylphosphonate (S)-5, but not its R enantiomer, elicited a potent antiapoptotic effect in intestinal epithelial cells, suggesting that it exerts its action via the enantioselective activation of a receptor. (S)-5 failed to activate the sphingosine 1-phosphate type 1 (S1P(1)) receptor.
