Glutathione peroxidase (GPx)-like antioxidant activity of the organoselenium drug ebselen: unexpected complications with thiol exchange reactions.
The factors that are responsible for the relatively low glutathione peroxidase (GPx)-like antioxidant activity of organoselenium compounds such as ebselen (1, 2-phenyl-1,2-benzisoselenazol-3(2H)-one)Expand

Antioxidant activity of the anti-inflammatory compound ebselen: a reversible cyclization pathway via selenenic and seleninic acid intermediates.
A revised mechanism that accounts for the glutathione peroxidase (GPx)-like catalytic activity of the organoselenium compound ebselen is described. It is shown that the reaction of ebselen withExpand

Synthesis, structure, spirocyclization mechanism, and glutathione peroxidase-like antioxidant activity of stable spirodiazaselenurane and spirodiazatellurane.
The first examples of stable spirodiazaselenurane and spirodiazatellurane were synthesized by oxidative spirocyclization of the corresponding diaryl selenide and telluride and were structurallyExpand

Thiol cofactors for selenoenzymes and their synthetic mimics.
The importance of selenium as an essential trace element is now well recognized. In proteins, the redox-active selenium moiety is incorporated as selenocysteine (Sec), the 21st amino acid. InExpand

Submonomer synthesis of a hybrid peptoid-azapeptoid library.
We recently reported efficient conditions for the synthesis of N-azapeptoid libraries via the typical submonomer strategy of peptoid synthesis but that substitutes N-acyl hydrazides for primaryExpand

Acyl hydrazides as peptoid sub-monomers.
The use of acyl hydrazides as peptoid sub-monomers is investigated. We demonstrate here that azapeptoids derived entirely from acyl hydrazides can be made conveniently and efficiently using standardExpand

Reciprocal carbonyl–carbonyl interactions in small molecules and proteins
Carbonyl-carbonyl n→π* interactions where a lone pair (n) of the oxygen atom of a carbonyl group is delocalized over the π* orbital of a nearby carbonyl group have attracted a lot of attention inExpand
