Biomimetic Synthesis of Natural and “Unnatural” Lignans by Oxidative Coupling of Caffeic Esters
The metal-mediated oxidative coupling of caffeic acid esters has been employed in the biomimetic synthesis of dimeric lignans and neolignans. Phenethyl and methyl caffeate esters were used asExpand

Production of filmable medium-chain-length polyhydroxyalkanoates produced from glycerol by Pseudomonas mediterranea.
Glycerol is an effective carbon source for the production of scl- and mcl-polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) by Pseudomonas spp. P. mediterranea 9.1 (CFBP 5447) synthesizes an amorphous mcl-PHA when grownExpand

The Search for Potent, Small‐Molecule HDACIs in Cancer Treatment: A Decade After Vorinostat
Histone deacetylases (HDACs) play a crucial role in the remodeling of chromatin, and are involved in the epigenetic regulation of gene expression. In the last decade, inhibition of HDACs came out asExpand

Progress in the development of selective heme oxygenase-1 inhibitors and their potential therapeutic application.
Heme oxygenases (HOs) are a family of enzymes involved in the selective catabolism of free circulating heme. While HO-2 is constitutively expressed, HO-1 is strongly overexpressed under stressfulExpand
