Two synthetic approaches to boehmeriasin A are described. A gram scale racemic preparation is accompanied by an efficient preparation of both the pure enantiomers using the conformationally stable 2-piperidin-2-yl acetaldehyde as starting material. The anti-proliferative activity in three cancer cell lines (CEM, HeLa and L1210) and two endothelial cell lines (HMEC-1, BAEC) indicates promising activity at the nanomolar range. Topoisomerases and SIRT2 are identified as biological targets and the experimental data has been supported by docking studies.
