Peptidylarginine deiminase (PAD) enzymes catalyze the conversion of arginine residues in proteins to citrulline residues. Citrulline is a non-standard amino acid that is not incorporated in proteins during translation, but can be generated post-translationally by the PAD enzymes. Although the existence of citrulline residues in proteins has been known for a(More)
A number of synthetic pantothenate derivatives, such as pantothenamides, are known to inhibit the growth of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum, by interfering with the parasite Coenzyme A (CoA) biosynthetic pathway. The clinical use of pantothenamides is limited by their sensitivity to breakdown by ubiquitous human pantetheinases of the vanin(More)
The full scope and limitations of solution and solid phase one-pot three component Nacyliminium ion reactions are detailed. After studying the scope in solution with respect to the carbamate, nucleophile and aldehyde component, a ‘translation’ was made to the solid phase. The solid phase reactions were eventually carried out using the so-called SEC linker(More)
