A progesterone analog has been covalently linked via an amide bond to polyethylene oxide (molecular weight, 20,000). This macromolecular steroid molecule displays the biological activity of progesterone in inducing meiotic maturation when incubated with Xenopus laevis oocytes (stage VI) in vitro. Its efficiency (half-maximum effective concentration, 30 muM)(More)
Nonactivated trienes and aryltrienes were cyclized into polycyclic compounds in good to excellent yields under bismuth triflate catalysis in a biomimetic fashion. The reaction showed broad applicability and allowed for the formation of functionalized bicyclic to tetracyclic structures from simple precursors in one pot. For some specific substrates, the(More)
The unstable hemoglobin (Hb) Saint Etienne (alpha2beta295F8 His replaced by G1n) (betaSE) was found in the red blood cells of an 8-year-old boy. The composition of this hemoglobin was 26% Saint Etienne, 52% A, 3% A2 and 19% HbF. Studies of hemoglobin synthesis indicate: a) a balanced synthesis of alpha and non-alpha chains (alpha=betaA + betaSE + gamma), b)(More)
A library of thirty novel thiazolo[5,4-f]quinazolin-9(8H)-one derivatives belonging to four series designated as 12, 13, 14 and 15 was efficiently prepared, helped by microwave-assisted technology when required. The efficient multistep synthesis of methyl 6-amino-2-cyano- benzo[d]thiazole-7-carboxylate (1) has been reinvestigated and performed on a(More)
Cycloisomerisation of polyenes such as diethyl geranylprenylmalonate [(E)-1 a], diethyl geranylphenylmalonate [(E)-2 a] and diethyl cinnamylgeranylmalonate [(E,E)-3 a] catalysed by bismuth triflate was studied from experimental and theoretical viewpoints. Several intermediates were isolated and characterised, and calculated transition-state structures are(More)
A microwave-assisted method for the palladium-catalyzed direct arylation of quinazolin-4-one has been developed under copper-assistance. This method is applicable to a wide range of aryl iodides and substituted (2H)-quinazolin-4-ones. This protocol provides a simple and efficient way to synthesize biologically relevant 2-arylquinazolin-4-one backbones.
