The pentaacetate ester of alpha-D-glucose was recently introduced as a new insulin secretagogue. Its insulinotropic action appears mainly attributable to the catabolism of its hexose moiety in islet cells, but a direct effect of the ester itself upon a receptor...

Hepatocytes from fed rats were incubated for 120 min in the presence of alpha-D-[1,2-13C]glucose pentaacetate (1.7 mM), both D-[1,2-13C]glucose (1.7 mM) and acetate (8.5 mM), alpha-D-glucose penta[2-13C]acetate (1.7 mM), or D-[1,2-13C]glucose (8.3 mM). The amounts of 13C-enriched L-lactate and D-glucose...

The metabolism of alpha-D-glucose pentaacetate and its positive insulinotropic action in isolated rat pancreatic islets are both unexpectedly resistant to D-mannoheptulose, as judged from experiments conducted over 90-120 min incubation. In the present study, the possible effects of the heptose...

We describe the synthesis of some 3-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyphenyl D-glycopyranosides by reaction of tert-butylhydroquinone with beta-D-pentaacetyl-glucose, beta-D-pentaacetyl-galactose, 2-acetamido- and 3,4,6-tri-O-acetyl-2-butanamido-2-deoxy-beta-D-glucopyranosyl chlorides as well as the formation of anomeric 3-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyphenyl 4,6-di-O-acetyl-2,3-dideoxy-D-erythro-hex-2-eno-pyranosides by reaction between tert-butylhydroquinone and 3,4,6-tri-O-acetyl-D-glucal. All compounds, except 3-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyphenyl alpha- and...
