Synthesis and Structural Revision of Glyphaeaside C
The iminosugar core of natural glyphaeaside C, originally assigned as a derivative of the piperidine natural product 1-deoxynojirimycin (DNJ), has been revised as a derivative of 2,5-dideoxy-2,5-imino-l-mannitol (l-DMDP) by the total synthesis of its enantiomer. This revised l-DMDP-derived configuration is the first of its kind to be observed in nature. The prepared iminosugars displayed the nanomolar inhibition of bovine liver β-glucosidase and β-galactosidase.
