Abstract

Three isoprenoid diphosphate analogues of farnesyl diphosphate (FPP) where the diphosphate has been replaced by methylene diphosphonate and the negative charges masked by frangible pivaloyloxymethyl (POM) esters were prepared. Farnesyl methylenediphosphonate is a sub-micromolar substrate for protein farnesyl transferase. The tripivaloyloxymethyl esters of isoprenoid methylenediphosphonate have significantly increased lipophilicity and may act as important farnesyl diphosphate prodrugs.
