Nannocystin A

Posted by naturalproductman on July 17, 2015

Dominic Hoepfner and co-workers from Novartis have reported in ACIE on nannocystin A, which had similar binding properties with didemin B on EF-1alpha (elongation factor 1 inhibitor).

Mark Brönstrup and co-workers at Helmholtz Zentrum für Infektionsforschung also reported on the isolation of this small molecule. I wonder if there’s a relationship between the two studies.

ACIE paper

the novartis paper states that their study parallels the work in helmholtz. I guess the two studies just coincidentally resulted in the isolation of the same compound.

Mandelalide A synthesis

Furstner and co-workers published in ACIE on the synthesis of mandelalide A, a macrolide found in South Africa. I wonder if this compound was named after Nelson Mandela.
