Mycalolide analog 4, consisting only of the side chain of mycalolide B (2), a trisoxazole macrolide of marine origin, was stereoselectively synthesized using Roush crotylboration, an Evans aldol reaction, and a Paterson aldol reaction as key steps. The analog 4 was found to have strong actin-depolymerizing activity.
