UDP-sugar Pyrophosphorylase with Broad Substrate Specificity Toward Various Monosaccharide 1-Phosphates from Pea Sprouts*
UDP-sugars, activated forms of monosaccharides, are synthesized through de novo and salvage pathways and serve as substrates for the synthesis of polysaccharides, glycolipids, and glycoproteins inExpand

The sugar-binding ability of human OS-9 and its involvement in ER-associated degradation.
Misfolded glycoproteins are translocated from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) into the cytoplasm for proteasome-mediated degradation. OS-9 protein is thought to participate in ER-associatedExpand

Bifunctional cytosolic UDP-glucose 4-epimerases catalyse the interconversion between UDP-D-xylose and UDP-L-arabinose in plants.
UDP-sugars serve as substrates in the synthesis of cell wall polysaccharides and are themselves generated through sequential interconversion reactions from UDP-Glc (UDP-glucose) as the startingExpand

Hydration changes upon DNA folding studied by osmotic stress experiments.
The thermal stability of nucleic acid structures is perturbed under the conditions that mimic the intracellular environment, typically rich in inert components and under osmotic stress. We nowExpand

Total synthesis of (-)-kaitocephalin based on a Rh-catalyzed C-H amination.
A total synthesis of (-)-kaitocephalin, an ionotropic glutamate receptor antagonist, is accomplished in highly stereocontrolled manner via Overman rearrangement, rhodium-catalyzed benzylic C-HExpand

A Phase Diagram for the Binary Blends of Nearly Symmetric Diblock Copolymers. 1. Parameter Space of Molecular Weight Ratio and Blend Composition
A phase diagram as a function of molecular weight ratio and blend composition was constructed for the binary blends of nearly symmetric polystyrene-block-polyisoprene (PS−PI) copolymers. In thisExpand

Heptapeptide ligands against receptor-binding sites of influenza hemagglutinin toward anti-influenza therapy.
The initial attachment of influenza virus to cells is the binding of hemagglutinin (HA) to the sialyloligosaccharide receptor; therefore, the small molecules that inhibit the sugar-proteinExpand

Synthesis and fluorescence properties of 4-diarylmethylene analogues of the green fluorescent protein chromophore
Abstract New green fluorescent protein (GFP) chromophore analogues, namely 4-(diarylmethylene)imidazolinones (DAINs), were readily synthesized under weakly acidic conditions using a novelExpand

Synthesis of Heterocycles Based on Rhodium-Catalyzed C–H Amination
A new stereoselective approach to substituted pyrrolidines and piperidines is described that involves Du Bois’ C–H ­amination reaction, Boc-activation of a cyclic sulfamate group, and base-promotedExpand
