In my presentation, I will present highlights form our recent efforts resulting in chemical syntheses of both rakicidin A and the BE-43547A1-scaffold and further provide a concise account of our studies aimed at elucidating the mode-of-action of these natural products.Small molecular weight compounds that selectively bind and stabilize mutant misfolded proteins may totally or partially recover the function and localization of the mutant proteins in the cell.
BE-43547 is a structurally related natural product class that also displays potent anti-proliferative activity although its sub-selectivities towards hypoxic cancer cells had until recently not been elucidated.The macrocyclic systems of both rakicidin A and the BE-43547A-class constitute significant synthetic challenges due to the presence of congested structural elements and a labile 4-amido-2,4-pentadienoate (APD) functionality.The latter is unique to this family of natural products that we collectively refer to as APD-CLDs.Adam Nelson is Professor of Chemical Biology at the University of Leeds (since 2005).He was Director of the Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology at Leeds (2009-11) and has been awarded the RSC Meldola medal (2001), the Pfizer academic aware (2002), an Astra Zeneca award in Organic Chemistry (2005), the RSC Corday-Morgan medal (2007).

Many important therapeutic agents have arisen by semi-synthesis and no doubt many more remain to be discovered in this way, but the process is inherently limited.This lecture will focus on the development of new platforms for the discovery of antibiotics by applying the power of convergent chemical synthesis, providing readily modifiable scaffolds that were previously inaccessible by any other means. Myers graduated from MIT in 1981 with a Bachelor of Science degree. Corey from 1981-1986 at Harvard University, both as a graduate student and then briefly as a postdoctoral researcher.Although such reactions explore diverse chemical space, they are rarely exploited in current discovery approaches which generally require reactions that yield predictable products.In each round of ADS, a reaction array is performed with outcomes that are critically dependent on the specific substrates/catalysts/conditions used.Reactions that yield highly active product mixtures are scaled up to reveal, after purification, the responsible bioactive structures.
Thereby, ADS can exploit adventurous and powerful synthetic methods in the discovery of bioactive molecules in parallel with associated syntheses.
The two current treatments of PKU, namely a strict phenylalanine diet and the administration of Kuvan®, are unsatisfactory since they are associated with neurodevelopmental or psychosocial problems and low responsiveness, respectively, and new therapeutic strategies are needed.
In PKU, the majority of the ( lead to a decrease in protein stability, and PKU is considered a paradigm of loss-of-function misfolding diseases.
Natural products are necessarily biologically-relevant because they arise through the evolution of biosynthetic pathways, driven by functional benefit to the host organism.
In this lecture, two complementary and unified approaches for the synthesis and elaboration of fragments will be described that have taken some inspiration from natural products and biosynthesis.
