Title

Synthesis of Yakuamide A Right-Hand Tetrapeptide

Abstract

We are synthesizing Yakuamide A and its analogs to probe its anticancer mode of action. My research focuses on synthesizing the right-hand tetrapeptide region of Yakuamide A. Methods of constructing the dehydrovaline residue will be discussed.
