Poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation is a reversible post-translational protein modification involved in the regulation of a number of cellular processes including DNA repair, chromatin structure, mitosis, transcription, checkpoint activation, apoptosis and asexual development. The reversion of poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation is catalysed by poly(ADP-ribose) (PAR) glycohydrolase(More)
The poly(ADP-ribose) (PAR) post-translational modification is essential for diverse cellular functions, including regulation of transcription, response to DNA damage, and mitosis. Cellular PAR is predominantly synthesized by the enzyme poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1). PARP-1 is a critical node in the DNA damage response pathway, and multiple potent(More)
Actinophyllic acid is a biologically active indole alkaloid with a unique structural framework that incorporates five contiguous stereocenters. A total synthesis of (±)-actinophyllic acid has been completed that proceeds in only 10 steps from readily available, known compounds and with the isolation of nine intermediates. The synthesis features a novel(More)
