A novel approach to incorporate the macrocyclic rings onto the privileged substructure, i.e., tetrahydroquinoline scaffold, is developed. The presence of an amino acid-derived moiety in the macrocyclic skeleton provides an opportunity to modulate the nature of the chiral side chain. Further, evaluation in a zebrafish screen identified three active small molecules (2.5b, 3.2d, and 4.2) as antiangiogenesis agents at 2.5 μM.
