Synthesis of novel thiopurine pyranonucleosides: evaluation of their bioactivity.


PMID 25774721

Abstract

We report the synthesis of novel thiopurine pyranonucleosides. Direct coupling of silylated 6-mercaptopurine and 6-thioguanine with the appropriate pyranoses 1a-e via Vorbrüggen nucleosidation, gave the N-9 linked mercaptopurine 2a-e and thioguanine 4a-e nucleosides, while their N-7 substituted congeners 10a-e and 7a-e, were obtained through condensation of the same acetates with 6-chloro and 2-amino-6-chloropurines, followed by subsequent thionation. Nucleosides 3a-e, 5a-e, 8a-e, and 11a-e were evaluated for their cytostatic activity in three different tumor cell proliferative assays.
