Abstract:

Carbohydrates have been proven as valuable scaffolds to display pharmocophores and the resulting molecules have demonstrated useful biological activity towards various targets including the somatostatin receptors (SSTR), integrins, HIV-1 protease, matrix metalloproteinases (MMP), multidrug resistance-associated protein (MRP), and as RNA binders. Carbohydrate-based compounds have also shown antibacterial and herbicidal activity.

Keywords: Carbohydrates, combinatorial chemistry, carbohydrate scaffolds, mimetics
