Abstract: The substitution of a hydroxyl group by a fluorine atom in a potential drug is an efficient reaction that can, in principle, improve its pharmacological properties. Herein, the synthesis of the novel compound 5′-fluoro-5′-deoxyacadesine (5′-F-AICAR), a strict analogue of AICAR that cannot be 5′-phosphorylated to ZMP by cellular kinases, is reported.
Keywords: AICAR; ZMP; AMPK; AMPK activation; fluorinated nucleosides; fluorination; imidazole nucleosides; nucleoside analogues; modified nucleosides
