Synthesis of eight stereoisomers of pochonicine: nanomolar inhibition of β-N-acetylhexosaminidases.
Pochonicine, the first naturally occurring polyhydroxylated pyrrolizidine containing an acetamidomethyl group, which was isolated from Pochonia suchlasporia var. suchlasporia TAMA 87, together with its enantiomer and their C-1 and/or C-3 epimers, have been synthesized from the sugar-derived cyclic nitrones 9D and 9L, respectively. An in-depth NMR study showed that both the (1)H and (13)C NMR spectra of the synthetic pochonicines (1D and 1L) matched very well with those of natural pochonicine ...Expand abstract
