Antineoplastic agents. 454. Synthesis of the strong cancer cell growth inhibitors trans-dihydronarciclasine and 7-deoxy-trans-dihydronarciclasine (1a).


PMID 19522518

Abstract

To further pursue the antineoplastic leads offered by our isolation of trans-dihydronarciclasine (1a) and 7-deoxy-trans-dihydronarciclasine (1c) from two medicinal plant species of the Amaryllidaceae family, a practical palladium-catalyzed hydrogenation procedure was developed for the synthesis of these isocarbostyrils from narciclasine (2a) and 7-deoxynarciclasine (2c).
