The hydrochloride of the racemic amino acid (7-hydroxycoumarin-4-yl)ethylglycine, a versatile fluorescent probe in proteins, has been synthesized in five steps from commercially available (7-hydroxycoumarin-4-yl)acetic acid. The key step involves the alkylation of a glycine-enolate equivalent.
The inhibition of ABC (ATP binding cassette) transporters is considered a powerful tool to reverse multidrug resistance. Zosuquidar featuring a difluorocyclopropyl-annulated dibenzosuberyl moiety has been found to be an inhibitor of the P-glycoprotein, one of the best-studied multidrug efflux pumps. Twelve 5-oxyisoquinoline derivatives, which are analogues… (More)
Racemic boronate-imine and boronate-amine complexes 8 and 10, both featuring a stereogenic boron atom were synthesized from 2-amino-1,1-diphenylethanol (5) and characterized by crystal structure analyses. Proof of enantiomerism at the boron center for the novel boronate-amine complex 10 was established by separation of the enantiomers. Racemization barriers… (More)
