The incorporation of adamantylalanine and carboranylalanine at the P2 site of bortezomib is well tolerated and provided potent cell permeable proteasome inhibitors with increased off-rates compared to bortezomib. Adamantylalanine and carboranylalanine were synthesized enantioselectively by an asymmetric Strecker reaction on Ellmans tert-butyl sulfinimines.
