An efficient chemical synthesis of carboxylate-isostere analogs of daptomycin

Abstract

Herein we report a direct and efficient method for the synthesis of four new carboxylate-isostere analogs of daptomycin. The side chain carboxylic acid moieties of the aspartic acids (Asp-3, Asp-7 and Asp-9) and β-methyl glutamic acid (MeGlu-12) were all converted into the corresponding carboxylate isosteres using direct synthetic procedures. The present study also describes an esterification protocol to overcome the possible backbone cyclization of the activated side chain carboxylic acid group of either Asp or Glu onto the backbone amide.
