abstract

  • The synthesis of differentially functionalized analogs of the Amaryllidaceae alkaloid lycorine, accessed via a concise chemoselective silylation strategy, is described uncovering two of the most potent inhibitors of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) identified to date in this series. Important elements of this novel pharmacophore were elucidated through structure-activity relationship (SAR) studies.
