Miuraenamides A and D, cyclodepsipeptides with antimicrobial and antitumor activity, were synthesized. The synthesis of an unsaturated hydroxycarboxylic acid moiety, starting from a chiral epoxide, was achieved by Suzuki-Miyaura coupling as a key step. As a result, the overall yield for miuraenamide A over the longest linear sequence is 3.2%, while the yield of the previously reported procedure is 1.9%. In addition, the cell growth-inhibitory activity and anti-Phytophthora activity of the synthesized compounds were evaluated.
