Abstract

The synthesis of D-myo-inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (InsP(3)) from methyl alpha-D-glucopyranose, via a type 2 Ferrier rearrangement is reported. A key intermediate in this synthesis possesses orthogonal protecting groups at the 1-, 4- and 5-position, making it a versatile starting point for the synthesis of unnatural InsP(3) derivatives. Biological evaluation of the synthetic InsP(3) demonstrates that this compound evokes selective Ca2+ release via activation of InsP(3) receptors. (C) 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
