Title

Synthesis of Analogues of Yaku\'Amide A

Abstract

Yaku'Amide A is a biologically active compound against numerous cancer cell lines. Because Yaku'Amide A is an extremely complex compound found in trace amounts in nature, we are working to make simplified analogues that will be easier to synthesize while maintaining its biological activity.
