01/10/2013 - "We recently designed and synthesized a simplified dansylated polytheonamide mimic 2, in which six amino acid residues were modified from 1, and demonstrated that 2 emulated the functions of 1. Here we report a comprehensive structure-activity relationship study of substructures of 2. A unified synthetic strategy was developed for highly automated syntheses of 13 peptide sequences of 27 to 39 amino acid residues, and the artificial 37-mer peptide 6 was discovered to be significantly more toxic than the other 12 compounds toward P388 mouse leukemia cells (IC50 = 3.7 nM).
