Abstract

[structure--see text] A semisynthetic route to epothilone cyclopropanes from epothilones A and B is described. Of significance, the deoxygenation of the 12, 13-epoxide to give the corresponding olefin was achieved with high efficiency. The title compounds (8, 9) were active in both tubulin polymerization and cytotoxicity assays, which is in direct contrast to a previously published report. These results provide further evidence that the role of the 12,13-epoxide of epothilones is largely conformational and argue against some of the current pharmacophore models.
