[reaction: see text] The efficient construction of an ingenol intermediate exhibiting "insideminus signoutside" intrabridgehead stereochemistry is reported. The sequence features the net conversion of a cis-intrabridgehead compound into a highly strained trans-species via palladium-mediated isomerization of an allylic epoxide followed by a low-temperature(More)
A series of 7-N-acyllavendamycins with zero, one or two substituents at the C-2', C-3', and C-11' were synthesized through short and efficient methods. Pictet-Spengler condensation of 7-N-acylamino-2-formylquinoline-5,8-diones with tryptamine or tryptophans produced the desired lavendamycins. Screening data on a panel of three ras oncogene-transformed cell(More)
Novel lavendamycin analogues with various substituents were synthesized and evaluated as potential NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase (NQO1)-directed antitumor agents. Pictet-Spengler condensation of quinoline- or quninoline-5,8-dione aldehydes with tryptamine or tryptophans yielded the lavendamycins. Metabolism studies with recombinant human NQO1 revealed that(More)
