Previous studies have demonstrated that naturally phosphorylated PRL antagonizes the growth-promoting effects of unmodified PRL in two different PRL-responsive cell lines. In this study our aim was to produce a molecular mimic of phosphorylated PRL by substituting a fairly bulky, negatively charged amino acid (glutamate or aspartate) for the normally(More)
As an especially unique target for chemical synthesis, diazonamide A has the potential to be constructed through a plethora of synthetic routes, each attended by different challenges and opportunities for discovery. In this article, we detail our second total synthesis of diazonamide A through a sequence entirely distinct from that employed in our first(More)
