In order to verify whether azasugar would be a useful scaffold for inhibitory activity against metalloproteinases, we synthesized some azasugar-based compounds. As a result, it is clarified that azasugar moiety could function as successful inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinase-1, -3 and -9 and TACE.
