Enhanced Neoglycosides Through Neoglycosylation And Methods Of Use Thereof
WARF: P07498US02

Inventors: Jon Thorson, Randal Goff

The Invention
Using neoglycosylation, the impact of differential glycosylation upon the divergent anticancer and anti-HIV properties of the triterpenoid betulinic acid (BA) was examined. Each member from a library of 37 differentially glycosylated BA variants was tested for anticancer and anti-HIV activities. Enhanced analogs for both desired activities were discovered with the corresponding antitumor or antiviral enhancements diverging, based upon the appended sugar, into two distinct compound subsets.
