Scabrosin esters and derivatives: chemical derivatization studies and biological evaluation

Chai, Christina; Elix, John; Huleatt, Paul; Waring, Paul


Several derivatives of the natural scabrosin esters were synthesized in order to elucidate the structural features present, which are responsible for the biological activities. The studies demonstrate that full anti-proliferative activities of the scabrosin esters, both the carboskeleton core as well as the ability to form the dithiol and/or the disulfide linkage of the epidithiopiperazine-2,5-dione are required. The presence of the epoxide rings on the scabrosin esters do not contribute to the...[Show more]
