The mechanisms by which hematopoietic progenitor cells become lineage-committed remain poorly understood. A cloned subline of the AML14 cell line (AML14.3D10) that spontaneously differentiates to eosinophilic myelocytes in the absence of cytokine stimulation was obtained by limiting dilution. This subline exhibits augmented expression of interleukin-5(More)
Heteroaromatic nitriles are important compounds in drug discovery, both for their prevalence in the clinic and due to the diverse range of transformations they can undergo. As such, efficient and reliable methods to access them have the potential for far-reaching impact across synthetic chemistry and the biomedical sciences. Herein, we report an approach to(More)
Cyclic alkenylsiloxanes were synthesized by semihydrogenation of alkynylsilanes-a reaction previously plagued by poor stereoselectivity. The silanes, which can be synthesized on multigram scale, undergo Hiyama-Denmark coupling to give (Z)-alkenyl polyene motifs found in bioactive natural products. The ring size of the silane is crucial: five-membered cyclic(More)
BACKGROUND The Charcot-Leyden crystal (CLC) protein is a major autocrystallizing constituent of human eosinophils and basophils, comprising approximately 10% of the total cellular protein in these granulocytes. Identification of the distinctive hexagonal bipyramidal crystals of CLC protein in body fluids and secretions has long been considered a hallmark of(More)
The Hiyama cross-coupling reaction is a powerful method for carbon-carbon bond formation. To date, the substrate scope of this reaction has predominantly been limited to sp(2)-sp(2) coupling reactions. Herein, the palladium-catalysed Hiyama type cross-coupling of vinyldisiloxanes with benzylic and allylic bromides, chlorides, tosylates and mesylates is(More)
