Heme-containing proteins have recently attracted increasing attention for their ability to promote synthetically valuable transformations not found in nature. Following the recent discovery that engineered variants of myoglobin can catalyze the direct conversion of organic azides to aldehydes, we investigated the azide oxidative deamination reactivity of a(More)
The plant-derived sesquiterpene lactone parthenolide (PTL) was recently found to possess promising anticancer activity but elaboration of this natural product scaffold for optimization of its pharmacological properties has proven challenging via available chemical methods. In this work, P450-catalyzed C-H hydroxylation of positions C9 and C14 in PTL was(More)
Parthenolide is a naturally occurring terpene with promising anticancer properties, particularly in the context of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Optimization of this natural product has been challenged by limited opportunities for the late-stage functionalization of this molecule without affecting the pharmacologically important α-methylene-γ-lactone(More)
