4 Synthetic Analogues of the Zinc-Binding Thiol Natural Products The signiﬁcance of such diﬀerences in selectivity for either therapeutic beneﬁt or undesirable side eﬀects is unclear. In our group, we have prepared these three natural products by total synthesis and tested them in proliferation assays with the MCF7 breast cancer cell line. While romidepsin and largazole are similar in activity with IC50 values of 1 and 5 nM respectively, thailandepsin A is more potent at 60 pM. The reasons for thailandepsin’s higher potency in cells compared to the mechanism-based assays are unclear.

Meanwhile, the UK biotech company Karus Therapeutics has adapted the Ganesan synthesis for the preparation of romidepsin and spiruchostatin analogues but details of lead compounds or their pharmacokinetics have not been disclosed [50, 51]. 5 Summary Romidepsin is the most famous example of the intriguing family of zinc-binding thiol natural products that are potent inhibitors of Class I HDACs. The compound has completed a 15-year odyssey from discovery by ‘big pharma’ to out-licensing to biotech and government-sponsored clinical trials before coming full circle and being acquired by big pharma after regulatory approval.
