A novel class of geldanamycin (GA) derivatives as hepatitis C virus (HCV) replication inhibitors has been synthesized and their anti-HCV activities were evaluated in GS4.3 HCV replicon cells. Most of the synthesized compounds demonstrated potential activities against HCV in vitro. Substitution with an aliphatic cyclic group (2b) and polar phosphate group (2f) at the 17 position of GA resulted in more potent inhibitory activity. The configurations of the tetrahydrofurfurylamino (THFM) substituents obviously affected their antiviral activities. The 2b with a 2'-(R)-THFM group at the 17 position showed much potent activity and higher selectivity than its 2'-(S) and 2'-(R, S) epimers. In the tested GA derivatives, 2b and 2f show the most potential leading compounds for development of novel anti-HCV agents.
