Abstract:


A library of 24 glycoconjugates related to glycosylated b-amino acid derivative (I) was been prepared and screened against DNA topoisomerase-II of the filarial parasite S. cervi. Among these, compound 6 was found to be a potent inhibitor of DNA topoisomerase-II with 95percent inhibition at 1.0?mM. Furthermore, compound 6 was at least three times more potent than the lead compound, glycosylated b-amino acid derivative I.

Keywords:
