A concise synthetic route to the lactam analog of 4-epi-brefeldin A is described. The key features of the synthesis involve cross metathesis of the bicyclic lactone intermediate and the side chain subunit readily available from an amino acid, and 13-membered macrolactam formation. Unlike the case of synthesis of natural (+)-brefeldin A, the introduction of C4-alcohol into the 13-membered lactam skeleton furnished the opposite configuration, which was confirmed by X-ray crystallographic analysis.
