Castanospermine, is used as a glycosidase inhibitor and antiinflammatory agent.castanospermine is used to inhibit syncytium formation between HIV-infected and CD4-expressing cells and may also interfere with infectivity. It has also been demonstrated that this agent inhibits inflammation at the level of leukocyte extravasation in rat models of experimental adjuvant-induced arthritis and autoimmune encephalomyelitis. Castanospermine is an inhibitor of Glucosidase I, Maltase-glucoamylase, and MANBA. Potent inhibitor of α- and β-glucosidases, especially glucosidase l (required for glucoprotein processing by transfer of mannose and glucose from asparagine-linked lipids). Inhibits HIV syncytium formation and replication.
