Growth promoting: The first synthesis of the natural product xanthofulvin (SM-216289) has resolved issues regarding its structural assignment and that described for the natural product 411J. The structurally and biologically related natural product vinaxanthone was similarly prepared through a novel dimerization reaction. Treatment of C. elegans with synthetic xanthofulvin and vinaxanthone enhanced axonal branching.
