3-O-beta-D-Glucopyranoside-betulinic acid an anti-cancer agent compound, was prepared through enzymatic reaction of betulinic acid and glucose in organic solvent which gave 87.5% yield. Its spectroscopic data is now reported. Interestingly, 3-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside-betulinic acid also showed strong activity against cultured Human breast cancer (MCF-7), Human T-promyelocytic leukemia (HL-60) and Mouse embryonic fibroblast cancer (3T3) with IC50 values of 8.5, 8.4 and 2.75µg/ml respectively. However, it was found to have moderate activity against Human cervical carcinoma cancer (HeLa) cell line with IC50 value of 12.0µg/ml.
