OBJECTIVE Soluble oligomers of amyloid beta (Abeta), rather than amyloid fibrils, have been proposed to initiate synaptic and cognitive dysfunction in Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, there is no direct evidence in humans that this mechanism can cause AD. Here, we report a novel amyloid precursor protein (APP) mutation that may provide evidence to address… (More)
The sequential transformation of arynes into ortho-disubstituted arenes is achieved by a one-pot procedure using formamides and dialkylzincs. This reaction proceeded via a route involving the trapping reaction of the formal [2 + 2] cycloaddition adducts or quinone methides generated by the insertion of arynes into the C=O bond of amides.
Synthesis of dihydrobenzofurans was achieved by a route involving the insertion of arynes into formamides followed by trapping with zinc enolates of α-chlorinated methines. Benzofurans were generated from dihydrobenzofurans having a ketone group via the addition of an ethyl anion, the retro-aldol type reaction, and the elimination of an amino group.
The domino three-component coupling reaction of arynes with DMF and active methylenes or methines was studied as a highly efficient method for preparing heterocycles. Coumarin derivative 5 was formed when diethyl malonate (2) or α-bromomalonate (3) were used as a C2-unit. In contrast, dihydrobenzofurans 7a and 7b were obtained by using α-chloroenolates… (More)
The polarity-mismatched perfluoroalkyl radical addition to electron-deficient alkenes was studied. For this study, several substrates having two polarity-different radical acceptors were employed to investigate the regiochemical courses of cascade reaction. In the case of substrate 1 having a methacryloyl moiety, we found polarity-mismatched… (More)
Arynes, such as benzyne, are highly strained and kinetically unstable intermediates that have been widely employed in organic synthesis. In particular, since the initial report regarding the in situ generation of arynes under neutral conditions from ortho-(trimethylsilyl)aryl triflates and fluoride ions in 1983, numerous nucleophilic additions to arynes… (More)
Serine-O-carbonate derivatives, including peptides having a serine-O-carbonate residue at the N-terminal position, are catalytically transformed into S-substituted cysteine derivatives employing the pyridoxal model having an ionophore function in the presence of Li+; this is the first artificial model mimicking cystathionine Beta-synthase.
One-pot synthesis of xanthene derivatives was achieved by a route involving the cascade three-component coupling reaction of arynes with DMF and active methylenes followed by the SN2' reaction of three-component coupling products with thiols. The reactivity of three-component coupling products toward nucleophiles and the further conversion of oxygen… (More)
The synthesis of 1H-benzo[f ]isoindole derivatives was achieved by the cascade radical cyclization–cyclization reaction of the active methine substrate having an allyl group and phenyl group as different two radical acceptors. This oxidative transformation proceeded by using iron(III) chloride FeCl3 as a mild oxidant via the intramolecular radical addition… (More)
