THE SYNTHESIS FROM D-XYLOSE OF THE POTENT AND SPECIFIC ENANTIOMERIC GLUCOSIDASE INHIBITORS, 1,4-DIDEOXY-1,4-IMINO-D-ARABINITOL AND 1,4-DIDEOXY-1,4-IMINO-L-ARABINITOL
- Both enantiomers of 1,4-dideoxy-1,4-iminoarabinitol are specific inhibitors of glucosidases. The synthesis of 1,4-dideoxy-1,4-imino-D-arabinitol involves connecting C2 and C5 of xylose together with nitrogen, whereas the synthesis of 1,4-dideoxy-1.4-imino-L-arabinitol requires C1 and C4 of xylose to be joined together by nitrogen. 1,4-Dideoxy-1,4-imino-D-arabinitol is a naturally occurring pyrrolidine alkaloid found in Arachniodes standishii and Angylocalyx boutiqueanus. © 1986.
