Synthesis and Bioactivity of a Macrocidin B Stereoisomer.Weber, Stefanie E; Gaß, Juliane; Zeng, Haoxuan; Erb-Brinkmann, Maike; Schobert, Rainer; HZI,Helmholtz-Zentrum für Infektionsforschung GmbH, Inhoffenstr. 7,38124 Braunschweig, Germany. (ACS, 2021-10-11)A stereoisomer of macrocidin B, a presumed metabolite of the fungus Phoma macrostoma, was synthesized in 18 steps and 2.7% yield from protected l-tyrosine that was N-β-ketoacylated with a fully functionalized octanoyl Meldrum's acid. Dieckmann condensation gave a 3-acyltetramic acid, which was macrocyclized via Williamson etherification between the phenol and epi-bromohydrin termini. This macrocidin B stereoisomer showed a weaker herbicidal effect than macrocidin A and no similar inhibitory effect on biofilms of Staphylococcus aureus.
