    ABSTRACT: We developed a practical and reliable method for synthesizing an abasic deoxyribonucleoside, 1,2-dideoxy-d-ribofuranose (dR(H)) via elimination of nucleobase from thymidine. To synthesize oligonucleotides bearing dR(H) by the standard phosphoramidite solid-phase method, dR(H) was converted to the corresponding phosphoramidite derivative and linked to a solid support (controlled pore glass resin). Chemically modified small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) possessing dR(H) at their 3'-overhang regions were synthesized. Introducing dR(H) to the 3'-end of the antisense strand of siRNA reduced its knockdown effect.

    ABSTRACT: A convenient method for the regioselective synthesis of unsaturated nucleoside analogs in water under microwave irradiation was developed. All pyrimidine and purine nucleoside derivatives were exclusively alkylated at N1 and N9 respectively in good to excellent yields. In addition, this system could tolerate a broad range of functional groups, such as chloro, bromo, iodo, alkyl, amino, and hydroxyl groups. More importantly, the reaction scale could be enlarged to 50 mmol which made this route attractive for industrial application.

    ABSTRACT: As antiviral nucleosides containing a fluorine atom at 2'-position are endowed with increased stabilization of glycosyl bond, it was of interest to investigate the influence of three fluorine atoms at 2'- and 5'-positions of apiosyl nucleoside phosphonate analogues. Various pyrimidine and purine 2',5',5'-trifluoro-3'-hydroxy-apiose nucleoside phosphonic acid analogues were synthesized from 1,3-dihydroxyacetone. Electrophilic fluorination of lactone was performed using N-fluorodibenzenesulfonimide. Difluorophosphonation was performed by direct displacement of triflate intermediate with diethyl(lithiodifluoromethyl) phosphonate to give the corresponding (α,α-difluoroalkyl) phosphonate. Condensation successfully proceeded from a glycosyl donor with persilylated bases to yield nucleoside phosphonate analogues. Deprotection of diethyl phosphonates provided the final phosphonic acid sodium salts. The synthesized nucleoside analogues were subjected to antiviral screening against various viruses.

    ABSTRACT: The preparation of the C-5′ diastereomers of 5′-homoaristeromycin has been achieved in 6 steps beginning with readily available (3aR,6aR)-2,2-dimethyl-2H,3aH,4H,6aH-cyclopenta[1,3]dioxol-4-one in a Michael reaction employing chiral Evans N-acyloxazolidinones that served to direct the requisite side chain stereochemistry. The two targets were evaluated against a battery of viruses and found to possess activity only towards yellow fever. Both compounds were non-cytotoxic.The Synthesis of Both Diastereomers of 5′-MethylhomoaristeromycinAll authorsWei Yea & Stewart W.

    ABSTRACT: The reaction of sodium 2,2-dicyanoethene-1,1-bis(thiolate) with 2-cyano-N-arylacetamides afforded sodium pyridine-4-thiolates, coupling of the latters with 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-acetyl-D-gluco- and D-galactopyranosyl bromides, respectively, afforded new pyridine-4-thioglycosides. Ammonolysis of the latter compounds afforded the free thioglycosides. The antitumor activities of the synthesized compounds were tested against human tumor cell lines; lung (A549), colon (HCT116), liver (HEPG2), and prostate (PC3).

    ABSTRACT: Carboxylates and dicarboxylates are important phosphate mimics. Herein, we present a simple synthetic route for the preparation of RNA carboxylate/dicarboxylate conjugates, starting from suitably protected NH2- and COOH-containing molecules that are coupled to the RNA on the solid support. The key point in our method was the use of trimethylsilylethanol (TMSE-OH) protecting group, which is removed simultaneously with the silyl protecting group on the 2'-OH of the RNA ribose (e.g. t-Butyldimethylsilyl) during the final RNA cleavage/deprotection steps. The usefulness of this method was demonstrated by preparing different RNA-phosphate mimics oligos.

    ABSTRACT: Novel 2'-deoxy-2'-β-fluoro-threose purine phosphonic acid analogues were designed and racemically synthesized from 2-propanone-1,3-diacetate. Condensation successfully proceeded from a glycosyl donor 9 under Vorbrüggen conditions. Cross-metathesis of vinyl analogues 13 and 23 with diethyl vinylphosphonate yielded the desired nucleoside phosphonate analogues 14 and 24, respectively. Ammonolysis and hydrolysis of phosphonates yielded the nucleoside phosphonic acid analogues 16, 19, 26, and 29. The synthesized nucleoside analogues were subjected to antiviral screening against human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1. Adenine analogue 18 exhibited weak in vitro activities against human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1.

    ABSTRACT: Recently, epigenetic regulation of alternative APP pre-mRNA splicing in the Lesch-Nyhan syndrome (LNS) has been studied (see Ref. 7) and showed for the first time, the presence of several APP-mRNA isoforms encoding divers APP protein isoforms ranging from 120 to 770 amino acids (with or without mutations and/or deletions). Here, by continuing on this work, I identified, for the first time new APP-mRNA isoforms with a deletion followed by an insertion (INDELS) in LNS and LNVs patients: c.19_2295delinsG166TT…GAGTCC…CTTAGTC…TCT489,p.Leu7Valfs*2;c.19_2295 delinsG169TT…GAGACC…CTTGGTC…TCT492,p.Leu7Valfs*2;and c.16_2313delinsG84CC…CAT616,p.Leu7Hisfs*45. A role of genomic rearrangements of APP gene via the Fork Stalling and Template Switching (FoSTeS) mechanism leading to INDELS was suggested. Epistasis between mutated HPRT1 and APP genes could be one of the factors of epigenetic modifications responsible for genomic rearrangements of APP gene. My findings accounted for epigenetic mechanism in the regulation of alternative APP pre-mRNA splicing as well as for epigenetic control of genomic rearrangements of APP gene may provide therefore new directions not only for investigating the role of APP in neuropathology associated with HGprt-deficiency in LNS and LNVs patients but also for the research in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders by which APP gene involved in the pathogenesis of the diseases such as autism, fragile X syndrome (FXS), and Alzheimer's disease (AD) with its diversity and complexity, especially for sporadic form of AD (SAD). An accurate quantification of various APP-mRNA isoforms in brain tissues for detection of initial pathological changes or pathology development is needed and antisense drugs are the potential treatments.

    ABSTRACT: A first microwave-assisted synthesis of a new class of novel purine thioglycoside analogues from readily available starting materials has been described. The key step of this protocol is the formation of sodium pyrazolo[1,5-a][1,3,5]triazine-4-thiolates via condensation of 5-amino-1H-pyrazoles with sodium cyanocarbonimidodithioate salt under microwave irradiation, followed by coupling with halo sugars to give the corresponding purine thioglycoside analogues. Further studies on the application of this method for the synthesis of other highly functionalized biologically active glycosides are underway.

    ABSTRACT: The syntheses of novel C-nucleoside phosphonic acids as potential antiviral agents are described. The sugar moiety that served as the nucleoside skeleton was produced starting from commercially available 1,3-dihydroxy cyclopentane. The key C-C bond formation from sugar to base precursor was performed using the Knoevenagel-type condensation. The synthesized compounds exhibited anti-HIV activity and cytotoxicity. Also, the synthesized compounds were screened in vitro for tumor growth inhibitory activity against mouse leukemia cell lines (L-1210, P-815).

    ABSTRACT: The efficient synthesis of cladribine via the metal-free deoxygenation was developed. Using (Bu4N)2S2O8/HCO2Na instead of Bu3SnH/AIBN as deoxygenation system, cladribine could be obtained with good yield and even on tens of grams scales. The intermediates and product could be purified by simple work-up process and chromatography was avoided, which showed the good future for industrial applications.

    ABSTRACT: 1-(2-Oxocyclobutyl-4-benzoyloxymethyl)-2,4(1H,3H)-pyrimidinedione and 1-(2-oxocyclobutyl-4-benzoyloxymethyl)-5-methyl-2,4(1H,3H)-pyrimidinedione can be prepared by reaction of uracil and thymine, respectively, with 3-benzoyloxymethyl-2-bromocyclobutanone. The N-alkylation gave both cis and trans isomers with the trans isomer predominating for uracil whereas the trans isomer was the only product which could be isolated for thymine. Both series were subjected to borohydride reduction followed by transesterification with methoxide giving the corresponding uracil and thymine nucleoside analogues. The uracil derivative 1-(2-oxocyclobutyl-4-benzoyloxymethyl)-2,4(1H,3H)-pyrimidinedione was irradiated in aqueous acetonitrile to generate isonucleoside analogues.

    ABSTRACT: The reaction of 2'-deoxynucleoside phosphoramidites with water is an important degradation reaction that limits the lifetimes of reagents used for chemical deoxyoligonucleotide synthesis. The hydrolysis of nucleoside phosphoramidites in solution has therefore been investigated. The degree of degradation depends not only on the presence of water but also on the specific nucleoside, 2'-deoxyguanosine (dG) being especially susceptible. Additionally, the nature of the group protecting the exocyclic amine on the nucleoside base strongly influences the rate of hydrolysis. For dG, the degradation is second order in phosphoramidite concentration, indicating autocatalysis of the hydrolysis reaction. Comparison of the degradation rates of dG phosphoramidites with different protecting groups as well as with phosphoramidites containing bases that are structurally similar to dG affords clues to the nature of how dG catalyzes its own destruction and indicates a direct correlation between ease of protecting group removal and propensity to undergo autocatalytic degradation.

    ABSTRACT: Concise, facile, and efficient synthesis of 1-(β-D-galactopyranosyl)thymine-6'-O-triphosphate, a potential probe that can generate reactive dialdehyde for DNA-enzyme cross-linking applications, was described starting from O,O'-bis(trimethylsilyl)thymine. Stannic chloride promoted glycosylation of 1,2,3,4,6-penta-O-acetyl-α-D-galactopyranose with O,O'-bis(trimethylsilyl)thymine, resulting in the formation of 1-(2,3,4,6-O-tetraacetyl-β-D-galactopyranosyl)thymine in 91% yield. Acetyl deprotection using methanolic ammonia afforded 1-(β-D-galactopyranosyl)thymine in 98% yield. The modified one-pot methodology was used to convert 1-(β-D-galactopyranosyl)thymine into 1-(β-D-galactopyranosyl)thymine-6'-O-triphosphate in 72% yield, which involves the formation of 1-(β-D-galactopyranosyl)thymine dichlorophosphoridate using POCl3 as the reagent at the monophosphorylation step followed by reaction with tributylammonium pyrophosphate and hydrolysis of resulting cyclic intermediate.
