Abstract

We have systematically synthesized 2α-functionalized 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1α,25(OH)2D3] 1 based on a convergent method using Pd-catalyzed alkylative cyclization with the A-ring precursor enynes and the CD-ring bromoolefin 5 in the following three categories: 2α-alkyl, 2α-hydroxyalkyl, and 2α-hydroxyalkoxyl derivatives, in order to study the structure-activity relationships of the natural hormone 1α,25(OH)2D3, particularly on the A-ring. First, the 2-methyl analogues 2 were designed and all eight possible diastereomers on the A-ring stereochemistry at C 1, C 2, and C 3 were synthesized from the A-ring precursor enynes 22a-h, which were prepared from methyl (S)- and (R)-3-hydroxy-2-methylpropionate. Biological activities including affinities to vitamin D receptor (VDR) and vitamin D binding protein (DBP), elevation of serum Ca level, induction of HL-60 cell differentiation, and apoptosis are discussed. Next, on the basis of biological activities of the 2α-methyl derivative, the other types of 2α-functional groups were introduced stereoselectively into the 1α,25(OH)2D3 skeleton using the A-ring precursor enynes derived from D-xylose or D-glucose. Five of these synthetic 2α-modified analogues showed higher VDR binding affinity than that of the natural hormone. Docking studies of the synthetic ligands to VDR based on Moras' X-ray results and remarkably high biological activities are described.
