The compounds of this invention may be prepared by conventional methods of organic chemistry. The reaction sequence outlined below, is a general method, useful for the preparation of compounds of this invention.
According to this method, oxacycloalkyl carboxylic acid is heated in a mixture of dioxane, diphenylphosphoryazide and triethylamine for 1 hour. To this mixture is added benzyl alcohol and the reaction is further heated over night to give intermediate compound 1. Compound 1 is dissolved in methanol. Next, concentrated HC1, Pd/C is added and the mixture is placed under hydrogen at 1 atm. The mixture is stirred overnight at room temperature and filtered. The residue is recrystallized to give intermediate compound 2. 6-chloropurine riboside is combined and the mixture is compound 2 dissolved in methanol and treated with triethylamine. The reaction is heated to 80° C for 30 hours. Isolation and purification leads to Compound 3.
Compounds of this invention prepared according to the method of Example 1 were tested in two functional models specific for adenosine A, receptor agonist function. The first was the A , receptor mediated inhibition of isoproterenol stimulated cAMP accumulation in DDT cells. The EC50 of each derivative is shown in Table I. Also shown in Table I is the ability of each derivative to stimulate cAMP production in PC 12 cells, a function of agonist stimulation of adenosine A2 receptors. The ratio of the relative potency of each compound in stimulating either an A, receptor or an A2 receptor effect is termed the selectivity of each compound for the A, receptor. As can be seen in Table I, each derivative is relatively selective as an A, receptor agonist. The use of measuring cAMP metabolism as an assay for adenosine A , receptor function has been previously described (Scammells, P., Baker, S., Belardinelli, L., and Olsson, R. , 1994, Substituted 1 ,3-dipropylxanthines as irreversible antagonists of A, adenosine receptors. J. Med. Chem 37: 2794-2712, 1994).

Compounds were also tested in a whole organ model of A, receptor activation with respect to atrial and AV nodal function. In this model, guinea pig hearts are isolated and perfused with saline containing compound while atrial rate and AV nodal conduction time are assessed by electrographic measurement of atrial cycle length and AV intervals, as detailed in Belardinelli, L, Lu, J. Dennis, D. Martens, J, and Shryock J. (1994); The cardiac effects of a novel A,-adenosine receptor agonist in guinea pig isolated heart. J. Pharm. Exp. Therap. 271:1371-1382 (1994). As shown in Figure 1, each derivative was effective in slowing the atrial rate and prolonging the AV nodal conduction time of spontaneously beating hearts in a concentration-dependent manner, demonstrating efficacy as adenosine A, receptor agonists in the intact heart.
A mixture of 4-pyranylcarboxylic acid (2.28 gm, 20 mmol), diphenylphosphorylazide (4.31 ml, 20 mmol), triethylamine (2.78 ml, 20 mmol) in dioxane (40 ml) was heated in a 100° C oil bath under dry nitrogen for 1 hour. Benzyl alcohol (2.7 ml, 26 mmol) was added, and heating was continued at 100° C for 22 hours. The mixture was cooled, filtered from a white precipitate and concentrated. The residue was dissolved in 2N HC1 and extracted twice with EtOAc. The extracts were washed with water, sodium bicarbonate, brine and then dried over MgSO4, and concentrated to an oil which solidified upon standing. The oil was chromatographed (30% to 60% EtO Ac/Hex) to give 1.85 g of a white solid (40%).

N-benzyloxycarbonyl-4-aminopyran (1.85 gm, 7.87 mmol) was dissolved in MeOH (50 ml) along with cone. HC1 and Pd-C ( 10%, 300 mg). The vessel was charged with hydrogen at 1 atm and the mixture was allowed to stir for 18 hours at room temperature. The mixture was filtered through a pad of eelite and concentrated.
