We here report on the synthesis, optimization, and biological characterization of leucettines, a family of kinase inhibitors derived from the marine sponge leucettamine B. Stepwise synthesis of analogues starting from the natural structure, guided by activity testing on eight purified kinases, led to highly potent inhibitors of CLKs and DYRKs, two families(More)
New derivatives of the marine alkaloid leucettamine B were prepared in five steps with overall yields ranging from 23 to 30%. The key step of our strategy has been the sulfur/nitrogen displacement under solvent-free microwave irradiation of (5Z) 5-benzo[1,3]-dioxo-5-ylmethylene-2-ethylsulfanyl-3,5-dihydroimidazol-4-one 3 with a mono-protected(More)
