Seven 2-substituted derivatives of the nitrogen analogue of salacinol, a naturally occurring glycosidase inhibitor, were synthesized for structure-activity studies with hexosaminidase enzymes. The target zwitterionic compounds were synthesized by means of nucleophilic attack of the 2-azido-1,4-dideoxy-1,4-imino-D-arabinitol at the least hindered carbon atom of 2,4-O-benzylidene-L-erythritol-1,3-cyclic sulfate. Hydrogenation of the azido zwitterionic compound in methanol resulted in the reduction of the azide and subsequent methylation of the resulting amine in one pot. A similar reaction, with ethanol as the solvent, gave the N-ethyl derivative. The 2-amino analogues were finally obtained by the reduction of the azide function using triphenylphosphine. Acylation of the amine using acetic, propionic, or valeric anhydride afforded the corresponding 2-amido derivatives. Deprotection of the acylated, coupled products using 80% trifluoroacetic acid proceeded smoothly. Unlike their sulfonium ion counterparts, these compounds were stable and did not undergo ring opening. We also report the synthesis of the parent nitrogen heterocycles, N-Boc-1,2,4-trideoxy-2-amino-1,4-imino-D-arabinitol, and 1,2,4-trideoxy-2-acetamido-1,4-imino-D-arabinitol and its corresponding N-Boc protected compound. The 2-substituted analogues and the parent iminoalditol showed marginal activity (<33% at 250 microM) against human O-GlcNAcase and Vibrio cholerae NagZ enzymes.
