    ABSTRACT: Saccharides, due to their high density of functional groups and availability as chiral building blocks are scaffolds for bioactive compound discovery. Pyranosides and iminosugar-based peptidomimetics have been synthesised as ligands for somatostatin receptors and HIV protease. The synthesis of polyhydroxylated macrolides related to natural products and cyclophanes has been achieved from carbohydrate fragments with a view to investigation of their potential as scaffolds. In addition, the trajectory of aromatic systems grafted to saccharides have been studied and this has led to the synthesis of probes for the study of carbohydrate protein interactions. These compounds include geometrically diverse bivalent glycomimetics derived from scaffolds that are hybrids of sugars and aromatic groups. (© Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

    ABSTRACT: Fifty-two C-glycosides were synthesized and their in-vitro antiproliferative activity screened against human cervical carcinoma (HeLa) and osteosarcoma (HOS) cell lines. Nine of them had growth inhibitions (GI50 values) below 10 μM, the C-glucopyranoside 38 being the most active against HeLa (5.4 μM) and the dichlorocyclopropyl derivative 42 against HOS (1.6 μM). Some preliminary structure–activity relationships were established.
