Yeast-based in vivo cloning is useful for cloning DNA fragments into plasmid vectors and is based on the ability of yeast to recombine the DNA fragments by homologous recombination. Although this method is efficient, it produces some by-products. We have developed an "ultra-low background DNA cloning system" on the basis of yeast-based in vivo cloning, by(More)
Photoinduced color change of naphthalene diimides (NDIs) bearing alkylamine moieties has been observed in the solid state. The color change is attributed to the generation of a NDI radical-anion species, which may be formed through a photoinduced electron-transfer process from the alkylamine moiety to the NDI. The photosensitivity of NDIs is highly(More)
The total synthesis of ganglioside GP3, which is found in the starfish Asterina pectinifera, has been accomplished through stereoselective and effective glycosylation reactions. The sialic acid embedded octasaccharide moiety of the target compound was constructed by [4+4] convergent coupling. A tetrasaccharyl donor and acceptor that contained internal(More)
Three types of the donor(D)-donor'(D')-acceptor(A) triads 1-6 with different D-A combinations, carbazole (Cz, D)-[n.n]PCP(D')-1,8-naphthalimide (NI, A) (1-3), 10H-phenothiazine (PTZ, D)-[n.n]PCP(D')-NI(A) (4, 5), and 10-methyl-10H-phenothiazine (Me-PTZ, D)-[2.2]PCP-2,1,3-benzothiadiazole (BTD, A) 6, were synthesized for the elucidation of their(More)
Novel photoswitchable chiral hosts having an axis chiral 2,2'-dihydroxy-1,1'-binaphthyl (BINOL)-appended stiff-stilbene, trans-(R,R)- and -(S,S)-1, were synthesized by palladium-catalyzed Suzuki-Miyaura coupling and low-valence titanium-catalyzed McMurry coupling as key steps, and they were fully characterized by various NMR spectral techniques.

The title compound, C40H46N2 {systematic name: 12,30-di-aza-hepta-cyclo[21.13.1.1(5,19).1(6,18).1(10,14).1(24,36).1(28,32)]do-tetra-conta-1(37),5(40),6(41),10(42),11,13,18,23,28,30,32(39),36(38)-dodeca-ene}, has syn-anti-syn geometry wherein the two outer [3.3]meta-cyclo-phane (MCP) moieties have a syn geometry, and contain the facing benzene and pyridine(More)
In the title linear homo-trinuclear complex, [Cd3(C19H18Cl2N2O2)2(C2H3O2)2], the central Cd(II) atom is located on a centre of inversion and has a distorted octa-hedral coordination geometry formed by four O atoms from two bidentate/tetra-dentate Schiff base ligands and two O atoms from two bridging acetate ligands. The coordination geometry of the terminal(More)
The synthesis, structural, redox, and photophysical properties of the two- and three-layered donor-acceptor (D-A) type [3.3]paracyclophanes ([3.3]PCPs) are described. The synthesis of the two- and three-layered [3.3]PCPs 1 and 2 containing 2,1,3-benzothiadiazole (BTD) as an acceptor was achieved by the (p-ethylbenzenesulfonyl)methyl isocyanide coupling(More)
