6-Methylpurine-β-D-riboside (β-D-MPR) has been synthesized by coupling6-methylpurine and 1-O-acetyl-2,3,5-tri-O-benzoyl-D-ribose using conditions that producethe β-D-anomer exclusively. The in vitro antitumor effects of β-D-MPR and 6-methyl-purine-α-D-riboside (α-D-MPR) in five human tumor cell lines showed that β-D-MPR washighly active (IC50 values ranging from 6 to 34 nM). α-D-MPR, although less active than β-D-MPR, also exhibited significant antitumor effects (IC50 values ranging from 1.47 to 4.83"µ"M).
