The metabolism of beta-L-glucose pentaacetate and its interference with the catabolism of L-[U-14C]glutamine, [U-14C]palmitate, D-[U-14C]glucose, and D-[5-3H]glucose were examined in rat pancreatic islets. Likewise, attention was paid to the effects of this ester on the biosynthesis of islet peptides, the...

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...

Research communications in molecular pathology and pharmacology, 103(1), 83-90 (1999-08-10)
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...

The polyacetate esters of certain non-nutrient monosaccharides, such as L-glucose and 2-deoxy-D-glucose, were recently reported to display positive insulinotropic action and, hence, proposed as possible tools for stimulation of insulin release in non-insulin-dependent diabetes. In the present study, the secretory...

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...

Both alpha- and beta-D-glucose pentaacetate (1.7 mM each) augmented, to almost the same extent, insulin release caused by succinic acid dimethyl ester (10.0 mM) in rat pancreatic islets. The secretory response to these hexose esters largely exceeded that evoked by...

Acta clinica Belgica, 57(2), 49-52 (2002-08-03)
The first report dealing with the use of monosaccharide esters as new tools in biomedicine was published in 1997 (1). This topic was first reviewed in 1998 (2). The major aim of the present report is to briefly evoke the...

Penta-O-acetyl-alpha-D-glucopyranose was selectively deacetylated in aqueous media by lipases from Candida cilindracea (CCL) adsorbed on octyl-agarose support. Enzymatic hydrolyses was regioselective at the 4-position under neutral pH and towards the 6 position under acidic conditions. This enzymatic approach allows the...

We report a new method to measure the fraction of glucose derived from gluconeogenesis using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry and positive chemical ionization. After ingestion of deuterium oxide by subjects, glucose derived from gluconeogenesis is labeled with deuterium. Our calculations of...

The metabolism of d-glucose and its pentaacetate ester was investigated in GLUT4 null mice and control C57Bl6/CBA mice. The incorporation of d-[U-(14)C]glucose (1.7 mM) into glycogen of diaphragm, soleus, and extensor digitorium longus muscles averaged, in the GLUT4 null mice...

An efficient synthesis protocol for the glucosyl-nucleoside phosphodiester derivatives has been developed. These mononucleotides were designed to act as pronucleotides with potential to deliver the parent compound as its monophosphate. Key step of the synthesis is the regioselective hydrolysis of...

The early (min </= 1) and late (min 45) changes in NAD(P)H fluorescence caused by alpha-D-glucose pentaacetate, beta-L-glucose pentaacetate, and beta-D-galactose pentaacetate (1.7 mM each), alone or together with either L-leucine (10.0 mM) or D-glucose (8.3 mM), were monitored in...

The two anomers of L-glucose pentaacetate were recently found to stimulate insulin release. The insulinotropic action of these esters cannot be attributed to the catabolism in islet cells of their glucidic or acetic moieties. The present review deals with an...

The esterification of several monosaccharides, such as D-glucose, D-mannoheptulose and 2-deoxy-D-glucose was recently reported to increase their biological efficiency as either nutrient or antimetabolic agent. In the present study, however, the tetraacetate ester of streptozotocin was unexpectedly found to be...
