A unified total synthesis of the GRP78-downregulator(+)-prunustatin A and the immunosuppressant(+)-SW-163A based upon [1 + 1 + 1 + 1]-fragment condensationand macrolactonization between O(4) and C(5) is hereindescribed. Sharpless asymmetric dihydroxylation was used toset the C(2) stereocenter present in both targets. In like fashion,coupling of the (+)-prunustatin A macrolide amine with benzoicacid furnished a JBIR-04 diastereoisomer whose NMR spectradid not match those of JBIR-04, thus confirming that it hasdifferent stereochemistry than (+)-prunustatin A.
