A series of glycoconjugates, derivatives of genistein containing a C-glycosylated carbohydrate moiety, were synthesized and their anticancer activity was tested in vitro in the human cell lines HCT 116 and DU 145. The target compounds 1517 were synthesized by treating ω-bromoalkyl C-glycosides derived from L-rhamnal (1) with a tetrabutylammonium salt of genistein. The new, metabolically stable analogs of previously studied O-glycosidic genistein derivatives inhibited proliferation of cancer cell lines through inhibition of the cell cycle. View Full-Text
