- The total synthesis of a biotinylated derivative of methyl rocaglate is described. This compound was accessed from synthetic methyl rocaglate (2) via formation of the propargyl amide and subsequent click reaction with a biotin azide. Affinity purification revealed that biotinylated rocaglate (8) and methyl rocaglate (2) bind with high specificity to translation factors eIF4AI/II. This remarkable selectivity is in line with that found for the more complex rocaglate silvestrol (3).
