Spiruchostatin A, a potent histone deacetylase inhibitor, was efficiently synthesized from (3S,4R)-4-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylhexanoic acid utilizing solid-phase peptide elongation with d-cysteine, d-alanine, and (E)-3-hydroxy-7-thio-4-heptenoic acid and solution-phase macrolactonization, followed by intramolecular disulfide formation.
