Abstract:


Attachment of different tails to the well-known carbonic anhydrase (CA) pharmacophores has led to the development of several new CA inhibitors (CAIs). A very good example of such “tails” is constituted by carbohydrates, which represent a wide range of chemotypes, leading thus to a high number of new CAIs. In the last years, several C-cinnamoyl glycosides containing different scaffolds have been prepared and investigated as carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, showing that some of them are very potent and selective CAIs. This article will review the latest developments in the synthesis and biological activity of these Cglycosides.

Keywords:
