Abstract

The N-acetylcystamine (SNAC) thioester of dodecapentaenoic acid, an analog of a putative intermediate in the biosynthesis of Heat Stable Antifungal Factor (HSAF), is synthesized. Key steps include sequential Horner-Emmons homologations with the Weinreb amide of diethylphosponoacetic acid, and thioesterification of an aldol-derived 3-hydroxyalkanoate, which serves as a stable precursor of the sensitive polyenoate. The thioester was investigated as a biosynthetic substrate using a purified nonribosomal peptide synthetase and was not incorporated in the observed products.
