BACKGROUND Compound targeting histone deacetylase (HDAC) represents a new era in molecular cancer therapeutics. However, effective HDAC inhibitors for the treatment of solid tumors remain to be developed. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Here, we propose a novel HDAC inhibitor, N-Hydroxy-4-(4-phenylbutyryl-amino) benzamide (HTPB), as a potential(More)
Compared to monovalent carbohydrates, multivalent carbohydrate ligands exhibit significantly enhanced binding affinities to their interacting proteins. Here, we report globotriose (P(k) ligand)-functionalized gold nanoparticle (AuNP) probes for the investigation of multivalent interactions with the B(5) subunit of Shiga-like toxin I (B-Slt). Six(More)
The titled hybrid (Q-H) works as a clippable optoelectronic unit. Q-spacer-Q systems function as efficient orange emitters reaching EL intensities (L) of up to 6840 cd m-2 with etaext of 0.77% and operation efficiencies of 1.60 cd A-1 and 0.8 lm W-1. Notably, Q-An acts as a (bluish) green emitter, reaching L of 12347 cd m-2 with similar operational(More)
BACKGROUND Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer mortality worldwide, yet the therapeutic strategy for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is limitedly effective. In addition, validated histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors for the treatment of solid tumors remain to be developed. Here, we propose a novel HDAC inhibitor, OSU-HDAC-44, as a(More)
A series of carbamates, amides, N-tosyl amides, (hetero)arenes, and hydrogen phosphines/phosphites has been examined as nucleophiles for (hetero)Michael-type additions to enones and enamides catalyzed by amphoteric vanadyl triflate under mild and neutral conditions. The newly developed C-N, C-P, and C-C bond-formation protocols were carried out smoothly in(More)
Acetal, trityl, and TBDMS protecting groups on saccharides were subjected to alcoholysis using a catalytic amount of vanadyl triflate in an MeOH-CH2Cl2 solvent system. The configuration at the anomeric positions of saccharides was retained, and no glycosidic bond cleavage and oxidation of sulfides were observed. The presented method was easily implemented,(More)
A diverse array of oxometallic species were examined as catalysts for a test direct condensation of benzoic acid and 2-phenylethanol in 1:1 stoichiometry. Besides group IVB MOCl2-xH2O and TiOX2-xH2O, group VB VOCl2-xTHF and group IVB TiO(acac)2 were found to be the most efficient and water-tolerant catalysts for the test reaction. The new neutral catalytic(More)
[reaction: see text] A diverse array of oxometallic species were examined as catalysts in nucleophilic acyl substitution (NAS) reactions of methyl (or ethyl) esters with protic nucleophiles. Among them, oxotitanium acetylacetonate (TiO(acac)(2)) and vanadyl chloride (VOCl(2)-(THF)(x)()) served as the most efficient and water-tolerant catalysts.(More)
[reaction: see text]. Aromatic aldehydes can be readily protected as acetals with 1,2- and 1,3-diols by using vanadyl triflate as a catalyst in CH(3)CN at ambient temperature. Carbohydrate-based 1,2- and 1,3-diols can similarly be protected in good to excellent yields. The catalyst can be readily recovered from the aqueous layer. In combination with vanadyl(More)
A series of chiral vanadyl(V) methoxides bearing 3-t-butyl-5-substituted N-salicylene-L-valinate and L-t-leucinate as chiral auxiliaries has been prepared. In all cases except the 3,5-di-t-butyl analogue, they exist as monomers both in solution and in the single crystal state. In the case of the 3,5-di-t-butyl analogue, the architectural nature of the(More)
