The consecutive treatment of N-Cbz amino protected compounds with LiHMDS and CbzCl provides a practical method for the preparation of N,N-benzyloxycarbamoyl (N,N-di-Cbz) derivatives in good yield. When alpha-amino acids are used the protection occurs without racemization. The method is compatible with a wide range of other functional and protecting groups.(More)
Haemonchus contortus appears to be the most economically important helminth parasite for small ruminant production in many regions of the world. The two sheep breeds native to the Canary Islands display distinctly different resistant phenotypes under both natural and experimental infections. Canaria Hair Breed (CHB) tends to have significantly lower worm(More)
Malaria caused by Plasmodium falciparum is a major cause of global infant mortality, and there is currently no licensed vaccine that provides protection against infection or disease. Several P. falciparum vaccine targets have undergone early testing, but many more candidates remain with little data to support their development. Plasmodium falciparum(More)
A mild and new procedure for the selective cleavage of an alkoxycarbonyl group (Boc, CBz) in N,N-dicarbamoyl-protected amino compounds is described. The method is based on the use of lithium bromide in acetonitrile and is compatible with a large range of other functionalities present in the substrates. Compared with other reported methodologies, the(More)
Canaria Hair Breed (CHB) sheep display resistance against the adult stage of the nematode, Haemonchus contortus. Previous studies have suggested significant correlations between γδ+ T lymphocytes and fecundity of female adult worms, suggesting a novel role in immune modulation by these cells. The largest proportion of γδ+ T lymphocytes in sheep are the(More)
The presence of zoonotic parasites in feral cats have been widely considered all over the world. In Gran Canaria (Macaronesian archipelago, Canary Islands, Spain) the number of feral cats has grown out of control in urban and rural areas. 48 of Felis catus captured in different Gran Canaria areas were studied. Animals were necropsied and several organs were(More)
The intramolecular Nicholas reaction of propargylic alcohols derived from N, N-acyl-diprotected omega-semialdehydes obtained from glutamic acid provided stereoselectively 5-alkynylproline derivatives. The suitable choice of the N-protecting group (tosyl or benzoyl derivative) permitted control of the stereochemistry during the ring formation. Semiempirical(More)
Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (Mh) is a bacterium that specifically infects the surface of bronchi and bronchioles of pigs without invading the host cells, and it is considered to be the primary agent of porcine enzootic pneumonia (PEN). The present study investigates the morphological and immunohistological changes induced in bronchiolar epithelium by Mh(More)
Haemonchus contortus (H. contortus) is a haematophagous parasite which causes important economic losses in small ruminants. On the island of Gran Canaria, two sheep breeds coexist which differ in their susceptibility to the infection with H. contortus; the resistant Canaria Hair Breed (CHB) sheep and the susceptible Canaria Sheep (CS) breed. The major(More)
