Previously, we have reported alterations to HSP27 during Microcystin-LR (MC-LR)-induced cytoskeletal reorganization in the human liver cell line HL7702. To further elucidate the detailed mechanism of MC-LR-induced cytoskeletal assembly, we focused on two cytoskeletal-related proteins, Tau and VASP. These two proteins phosphorylated status influences their(More)
Easy access: An unprecedented copper-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of the title compounds with diboron reagents is described (see scheme; Ts = 4-toluenesulfonyl). This reaction can be used to prepare both primary and secondary alkylboronic esters having diverse structures and functional groups. The resulting products would be difficult to access by(More)
A copper-catalyzed reductive cross-coupling reaction of nonactivated alkyl tosylates and mesylates with alkyl and aryl bromides was developed. It provides a practical method for efficient and cost-effective construction of aryl-alkyl and alkyl-alkyl CC bonds with stereocontrol from readily available substrates. When used in an intramolecular fashion, the(More)
Neuroglioma is a complex neuroglial tumor involving dysregulation of many biological pathways at multiple levels. Quercetin is a potent cancer therapeutic agent presented in fruit and vegetables, preventing tumor proliferation, and is a well known cancer therapeutic agent and autophagy mediator. Recent studies showed that drug delivery by nanoparticles have(More)
The first copper-catalyzed/promoted sp(3)-C Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reaction of gem-diborylalkanes with nonactivated electrophilic reagents is reported. Not only 1, 1-diborylalkanes but also some other gem-diborylalkanes can be coupled with nonactivated primary alkyl halides, offering a new method for sp(3)C-sp(3)C bond formation and, simultaneously,(More)
A practical, Pd(0)/Pd(II)-catalyzed reaction was developed for phenol-directed C-H activation/C-O cyclization using air as an oxidant. The turnover-limiting step of the process was found to be C-O reductive elimination instead of C-H activation. This reaction can tolerate a variety of functional groups and is complementary to the previous methods for the(More)
A Cu/(NHC)-catalyzed SN2'-selective substitution reaction of allylic electrophiles with gem-diborylalkanes is reported. Different substituted gem-diborylalkanes and allylic electrophiles can be employed in this reaction, and various synthetic valuable functional groups can be tolerated. The asymmetric version of this reaction was initially researched with(More)
A novel method for the synthesis of non-natural L- and D-amino acids by a Ni-catalyzed reductive cross-coupling reaction is described. This strategy enables the racemization-free cross-coupling of serine/homoserine- derived iodides with aryl/acyl/alkyl halides. It provides convenient access to varieties of enantiopure and functionalized amino acids, which(More)
A copper-mediated directed demethylation of propionamides has been developed. This reaction proceeds predominantly at the α-methyl groups of aliphatic amides with high efficiency and provides a unique tool for the direct cleavage of unactivated C(sp(3))-C(sp(3)) bonds. The directing groups can be smoothly removed to afford the corresponding alkyl carboxylic(More)
A copper-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction of epoxides with arylboronates is described. This reaction is not limited to aromatic epoxides, because aliphatic epoxides are also suitable substrates. In addition, N-sulfonyl aziridines can be successfully converted into the products. This reaction provides convenient access to β-phenethyl alcohols, which are(More)
