Silver(I)-Catalyzed Route to Pyrroles: Synthesis of Halogenated Pseudilins as Allosteric Inhibitors for Myosin ATPase and X-ray Crystal Structures of the Protein–Inhibitor Complexes.
Eur J Org Chem: n/a-n/a
The pentahalogenated 2-arylpyrrole-type alkaloids pentabromopseudilin and pentachloropseudilin represent a new class of isoform-specific allosteric inhibitors of myosin ATPase. Herein, we describe an application of the silver(I)-catalyzed cycloisomerization of N-(homopropargyl)toluene-sulfonamides to the total syntheses of these natural productsand several non-natural analogues. Moreover, we examine the inhibitiory effect of pentahalogenated pseudilins on myosin ATPase activity.
