A new vitamin D3 analogue, 2α-propoxy-1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (C3O1), was synthesized starting from d-glucose as a chiral template of the A-ring with a CD-ring bromoolefin unit using the Trost coupling method. We studied the metabolism of the new analogue by human CYP24A1 and rat CYP24A1 to learn of species-based differences and found that the former has multiple metabolic pathways, but the latter has only a single pathway.
