Usnic acid, a highly functionalized dibenzofuran, is a polyketide secondary metabolite produced by several species of lichens. Synthesis of usnic acid from commercially available starting material was accomplished in two steps. The synthesis involves the methylation of phloracetophenone followed by oxidation with horseradish peroxidase. This work will lay(More)
Background A phase 2, randomized, placebo-controlled trial was conducted in women with recurrent epithelial ovarian carcinoma to evaluate the efficacy and safety of motolimod-a Toll-like receptor 8 (TLR8) agonist that stimulates robust innate immune responses-combined with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (PLD), a chemotherapeutic that induces immunogenic(More)
The cDNA encoding a human cytosolic 40-kDa cyclophilin (CyP-40) has been inserted into a modified pGEX-3X expression vector and expressed in Escherichia coli to yield recombinant CyP-40 at levels up to 4 mg/l medium. The protein was purified to homogeneity using a cyclosporin affinity matrix and gel filtration. The recombinant CyP-40 showed peptidyl-prolyl(More)
