Enantioselective Synthesis of Spliceostatin E and Evaluation of Biological Activity

Published Web Location
No data is associated with this publication.

An enantioselective total synthesis of spliceostatin E has been accomplished. The δ-lactone unit A was constructed from readily available (R)-glycidyl alcohol using a ring-closing olefin metathesis as the key reaction. A cross-metathesis of ring A containing δ-lactone and the functionalized tetrahydropyran B-ring provided spliceostatin E. Our biological evaluation of synthetic spliceostatin E revealed that it does not inhibit splicing in vitro and does not impact speckle morphology in cells. Spliceostatin E was reported to possess potent antitumor activity.
