Buthionine sulfoximine (BSO) is a sulfoximine which reduces levels of glutathione and is being investigated as an adjunct withchemotherapy in the treatment of cancer. The compound inhibits gamma-glutamylcysteine synthetase, the enzyme required in the first step of glutathione synthesis. Buthionine sulfoximine may also be used to increase the sensitivity of parasites to oxidativeantiparasitic drugs.
Buthionine sulphoximine is an oncolytic agent in early clinical development at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) for the treatment of neuroblastoma in pediatric patients in combination with melphalan and bone marrow or peripheral stem cell transplantation.
Methionine and buthionine sulfoximines: Syntheses under mild and safe imidation/oxidation conditions
Advanced Synthesis&Catalysis (2014), 356, (10), 2209-2213
Methionine and buthionine sulfoximines (MSO and BSO) are non-natural amino acids known to inhibit the biosynthesis of glutathione (GSH). The current syntheses of these biologically active molecules involve harsh reaction conditions and the use of hazardous reagents for the sulfur imidation. Here, improved syntheses of MSO and BSO are presented including safe and mild one-pot imidation/oxidation sequences and single-step deprotections of three different functionalities.
