We report the synthesis and the in vitro insulin releasing and glucose uptake activity of the morpholino thiazolyl-2,4-thiazolidinediones (1-15). Compounds 5, 11-15 (at lower concentration; 0.001 mg/ml) were able to increase insulin release in the presence of 5.6 mmol/l glucose. The compounds, except derivative 3 show an increase of glucose uptake. Various compounds are interesting potential antidiabetic leads showing pancreatic and extrapancreatic effects.
