JNCL is a neurodegenerative disease of childhood caused by mutations in the CLN3 gene. A mouse model for JNCL was created by disrupting exons 1-6 of Cln3, resulting in a null allele. Cln3 null mice appear clinically normal at 5 months of age; however, like JNCL patients, they exhibit intracellular accumulation of autofluorescent material. A second approach(More)
A practical and convenient methodology for the synthesis of chiral cyclopentenol derivative (+)-12a has been developed as the key intermediate that was utilized for the synthesis of biologically active carbocyclic nucleosides.
