Kendomycin is a potent antagonist of endothelin and calcitonin receptors. It exhibits potent cytotoxicity towards carcinoma cell lines and antibacterial activity against Methicillin-resistant and Vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus strains. This highly convergent synthesis of an advanced intermediate adopts an intramolecular Prins cyclization to assemble the macrocyclic ring (IJ).
