Among the phytotechnologies used for the reclamation of degraded mining sites, phytoextraction aims to diminish the concentration of polluting elements in contaminated soils. However, the biomass resulting from the phytoextraction processes (highly enriched in polluting elements) is too often considered as a problematic waste. The manganese-enriched biomass(More)
2-Keto-3-deoxy-D-erythro-hexonic acid (KDG) is the key intermediate metabolite of the Entner Doudoroff (ED) pathway. A simple, efficient and stereoselective synthesis of KDG isopropyl ester is described in five steps from 2,3-O-isopropylidene-D-threitol with an overall yield of 47%. KDG isopropyl ester is studied as an attractive marker of a functional(More)
In the study of previously reported modulators of CFTR chloride channels that are cyclic methylglyoxal (MG) diadducts (CMGD) to aromatic α-aminoazaheterocycles, we optimized a new expeditious one pot route for preparing in water novel aromatic polycyclic azaheterocycles and described 5-pyrimidinols antioxidants through the formation of 2-oxoaldehyde(More)
We describe a rational approach devoted to modulate the sugar-phosphate backbone geometry of nucleic acids. Constraints were generated by connecting one oxygen of the phosphate group to a carbon of the sugar moiety. The so-called dioxaphosphorinane rings were introduced at key positions along the sugar-phosphate backbone allowing the control of the(More)
Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is the main chloride channel present in the apical membrane of epithelial cells and the F508 deletion (F508del-CFTR) in the CF gene is the most common cystic fibrosis-causing mutation. In the search for a pharmacotherapy of cystic fibrosis caused by the F508del-CFTR, a bi-therapy could be developed(More)
