A close structural analogue of bryostatin 1, which differs from bryostatin 1 only by the absence of the C30 carbomethoxy group (on the C13 enoate of the B-ring), has been prepared by total synthesis. Biological assays reveal a crucial role for substitution in the bryostatin 1 A-ring in conferring those responses which are characteristic of bryostatin 1 and distinct from those observed with PMA.
