Chemical synthesis and biological evaluation of 1d-1,2,4,5-InsP4 and its 3-fluorinated counterpart 1d-3-F-1,2,4,5-InsP4 - potent 1d-1,4,5-InsP3-like calcium mobilizing analogues

Syntheses of optically pure 1d-3-F-2,4,5-InsP3, 1d-3-F-1,2,4,5-InsP4, and 1d-1,2,4,5-InsP4 are reported starting from l-quebrachitol. The latter two compounds are shown to be nearly equipotent to 1d-1,4,5-InsP3 in both binding and calcium release experiments.
