Abstract

The isolation, identification and total synthesis of two plant-derived inhibitors of the NF-κB signaling pathway from the iso-seco-tanapartholide family of natural products is described. A key step in the efficient reaction sequence is a late-stage oxidative cleavage reaction that was carried out in the absence of protecting groups to give the natural products directly. A detailed comparison of the synthetic material with samples of the natural products proved informative. Biological studies on synthetic material confirmed that these compounds act late in the NF-κB signaling pathway.
