—Advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) is an important component of the smart grid. The cyber security should be considered prior to the AMI system applications. To ensure confidentiality and integrality, a key management scheme (KMS) for a large amount of smart meters (SMs) and devices is required, which is not a properly solved problem until now.(More)
Interest in drugs that covalently modify their target is driven by the desire for enhanced efficacy that can result from the silencing of enzymatic activity until protein resynthesis can occur, along with the potential for increased selectivity by targeting uniquely positioned nucleophilic residues in the protein. However, covalent approaches carry(More)
We report novel polymyxin analogues with improved antibacterial in vitro potency against polymyxin resistant recent clinical isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii and Pseudomonas aeruginosa . In addition, a human renal cell in vitro assay (hRPTEC) was used to inform structure-toxicity relationships and further differentiate analogues. Replacement of the Dab-3(More)
Reported here are procedures for a one-pot oxidation and rearrangement of propargylamines to synthesize enaminones, with supporting mechanistic studies. Also reported are the extended one-pot syntheses of pyrazoles, including celecoxib and various heterocyclic compounds.
Interleukin-17A (IL-17A) is a principal driver of multiple inflammatory and immune disorders. Antibodies that neutralize IL-17A or its receptor (IL-17RA) deliver efficacy in autoimmune diseases, but no small-molecule IL-17A antagonists have yet progressed into clinical trials. Investigation of a series of linear peptide ligands to IL-17A and(More)
The synthesis and biological activity of a new series of LpxC inhibitors represented by pyridone methylsulfone hydroxamate 2a is presented. Members of this series have improved solubility and free fraction when compared to compounds in the previously described biphenyl methylsulfone hydroxamate series, and they maintain superior Gram-negative antibacterial(More)
In this work, perovskite solar cells (PSCs) with CH3NH3PbI3-x Cl x as active layer and spiro-OMeTAD as hole-transport media have been fabricated by one-step method. The methylammonium iodide (CH3NH3I) solution with different concentrations is used to modify the interface between mesoporous TiO2 (meso-TiO2) film and CH3NH3PbI3-x Cl x perovskite layer.(More)
A novel series of 3-O-carbamoyl erythromycin A derived analogs, labeled carbamolides, with activity versus resistant bacterial isolates of staphylococci (including macrolide and oxazolidinone resistant strains) and streptococci are reported. An (R)-2-aryl substituent on a pyrrolidine carbamate appeared to be critical for achieving potency against resistant(More)
