Abstract

The synthesis of some analogues of O-(2-acetamido-2-deoxy-D-glucopyranosylidene)amino N-phenylcarbamate, PUGNAc, an inhibitor of beta-N-acetylglucosaminidases, is described. The analogues were tested against a range of beta-N-acetylglucosaminidases to establish any biological activity. As well, the analogues were tested as inhibitors of a uridine diphosphate-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine: polypeptidyl transferase, OGT, a critical protein involved in the post-translational modification of nuclear and cytosolic proteins by N-acetyl-D-glucosamine.
