(Chemical Equation Presented) The synthesis of the naturally occurring kaempferol glycoside SL0101 has been accomplished, as has its biochemical evaluation. SL0101 exhibits selective and potent p90 Rsk inhibitory activity at nanomolar concentrations without inhibiting the function of upstream kinases such as MEK, Raf, or PKC. The synthesis verified the structural assignment of the natural product and has provided access to material sufficient for detailed biological evaluation.
