Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
A new expeditious preparation of homochiral (−)-1-azafagomine and (+)-5-epi-1-azafagomine has been devised. Stoodley's diastereoselective cycloaddition of dienes bearing a 2,3,4,6-tetraacetyl glucosyl chiral auxiliary to 4-phenyl-1,2,4-triazole-3,5-dione was merged with Bols's protocol for functionalizing alkenes into molecules bearing a glucosyl framework. Homochiral (+)-5-epi-1-azafagomine was synthetized for the first time. Partial reductive cleavage of the phenyltriazolidinone moiety afforded new homochiral 1-N-phenyl carboxamide derivatives of 1-azafagomine. Both enantiomers of these derivatives were synthetized and tested, displaying a very good enzymatic inhibition toward baker's yeast α-glucosidase. The molecular recognition mechanism of the 1-N-phenyl carboxamide derivative of 1-azafagomine by α-glucosidase from baker's yeast was studied by molecular modeling. The efficient packing of the aromatic ring of the 1-N-phenyl carboxamide moiety into a hydrophobic subsite (pocket) in the enzyme's active site seems to be responsible for the improved binding affinity in relation to underivatized (−)-1-azafagomine and (+)-1-azafagomine.
