Abstract: The antiviral activity of certain acyclic nucleosides drew our attention to the fact that the replacement of the furanose ring by an alkyl group bearing hydroxyl(s) could be a useful structural modification to modulate the biological properties of those nucleosides. Herein, we report on the synthesis of some novel acadesine analogues, where the ribose moiety is mimicked by a d-ribityl or by a hydroxybutyl chain.
Keywords: AICAR; ZMP; acadesine; AMPK; AMPK activation; imidazole nucleosides; nucleoside analogues; modified nucleosides; acyclic nucleosides; acyclic nucleotides
