dc.description.abstractMigrastatin and isomigrastatin analogues have been synthesised in order to contribute to structure-activity studies on tumour cell migration inhibitors. These include macrocycles varying in ring size, functionality and alkene stereochemistry, as well as glucuronides. The synthesis work included application of the Saegusa-Ito reaction for regio- and stereoselective unsaturated macroketone formation, diastereoselective Brown allylation to generate 9-methylmigrastatin analogues and chelation-induced anomerisation to vary glucuronide configuration. Compounds were tested in vitro against both breast and pancreatic cancer cell lines and inhibition of tumour cell migration was observed in both wound-healing (scratch) and Boyden chamber assays. One unsaturated macroketone showed low affinity for a range of secondary drug targets, indicating it is at low risk of displaying adverse side effects..en_IE
