Chemical reaction-diffusion patterns often serve as prototypes for pattern formation in living systems, but only two isothermal single-phase reaction systems have produced sustained stationary reaction-diffusion patterns so far. We designed an experimental method to search for additional systems on the basis of three steps: (i) generate spatial bistability(More)
The presence of pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) and its mRNAin the three levels of the hypothalamo-hypophyseal-ovarian axis was previously demonstrated using immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, and reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). In the hypothalamus, PACAP is present in neuroendocrine effector(More)
Teutsch G. and Bélanger A. treated 5alpha,10alpha epoxides with Grignard-reagents catalyzed by copper(I) ions. The reaction with steroidal epoxides proceeded with complete regio- and stereospecificity, leading exclusively to the 11beta-substituted compounds. According to our synthetic strategy, the 5,10 epoxide isomers were not separated; instead, the pure(More)
17-formyl-androst-16-ene and its analogues were synthesized from the corresponding 17-iodo-16-ene derivatives in palladium-catalyzed formylation reaction using tributyltin hydride as hydrogen source under mild reaction conditions. The formation of androst-16-ene and its isomerization products, as well as that of analogous steroidal olefins as side-products,(More)
Homogeneous catalytic hydrazinocarbonylation of some steroid derivatives possessing iodo-alkenyl moiety (17-iodo-androst-16-ene 1, 17-iodo-3-methoxy-estra-1,3,5(10),16-tetraene 2, 17-iodo-4-aza-4-methyl-androst-16-en-3-one 3 and 17-iodo-6beta-hydroxy-3alpha,5alpha-cycloandrost-16-ene 4) were carried out in the presence of a palladium catalyst, a base and(More)
Steroidal dienes were synthesised by Stille-coupling of the corresponding alkenyl iodides with vinyltributyltin under microwave irradiation in a domestic microwave oven in drastically reduced reaction times. Rate acceleration was observed also in the one-pot Stille-coupling-Diels-Alder reaction of 17-iodo-5alpha-androst-16-ene. Stereoselectivity of(More)
