Abstract

Protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) is a key factor in the negative regulation of insulin pathway and a promising target for treatment of diabetes and obesity. Herein, the sapogenin 2b, prepared from the natural triterpene saponin 1b, was modified at 3-position to establish the dammarane derivatives library via esterification, oxidation and reductive amination reaction and evaluated as PTP1B inhibitors. 3-O-para-Carboxylphenyl substituted derivative 5b was found with the best in vitro inhibition activity to protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (IC(50)=0.27microM), where 3-O-meta-carboxylphenyl substituted 5a exhibited the best selectivity (nearly fivefolds) between PTP1B and T-cell protein tyrosine phosphatase.
