Synthesis and Biological Evaluation of a New Benzofuran Analogue of 8- HETE
The total synthesis of a 2,3-disubstituted benzofuran, designed as a structural analogue of a bioactive arachidonic acid metabolite, the 8-(S)-HETE, is reported. This heterocyclic derivative has been evaluated as dual agonist of the PPARα and PPARγ nuclear receptors.
