A convergent stereocontrolled total synthesis of (+)-tautomycin (1), a specific inhibitor of protein serine/threonine phosphatases, has been achieved through an esterification of the C1.-C7. fragment A'74 with the C1-C26 fragment B'76 by a modified Yamaguchi method and an aldol reaction of the C17-C26 fragment C 5 with the C1-C16 fragment D 6 using LDA as key steps. The fragments 5 and 6 have been constructed in a stereocontrolled manner, respectively.
