Biselyngbyaside, an 18-membered macrolide glycoside from marine cyanobacteria, and its derivatives are known to be sarco/endoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ ATPase (SERCA) inhibitors. Recently, a SERCA orthologue of the malaria parasite, PfATP6, has attracted attention as a malarial drug target. To provide a novel drug lead, we designed new synthetic analogs of biselyngbyolide B, the aglycone of biselyngbyaside, based on the co-crystal structure of SERCA with biselyngbyolide B, and synthesized them using the established synthetic route for biselyngbyolide B. Their biological activities against malarial parasites were evaluated.
Keywords: Biselyngbyaside; Biselyngbyolide; PfATP6; SERCA; Structure–activity relationships.
