Encoded combinatorial organic synthesis has recently emerged as a powerful tool for the discovery of biologically active compounds from complex chemical libraries. This report describes a new encoding methodology that uses chemically robust secondary amines as tags. These amines are incorporated into an N-[(dialkylcarbamoyl)methyl]glycine-coding oligomer(More)
The application of a new encoding technology for drug discovery is described. A combinatorial library of mercaptoacyl pyrrolidines has been prepared on a beaded polymeric support. Each polymer bead carries one library constituent in association with an oligomeric "tag," the structure of which is a record of the specific reagents from which that library(More)
Microcylindrical electrodes are easier to construct and maintain than microdisk electrodes. In the normal-pulse mode, ranges of time parameters and electrode sizes can be found such that depletion of reactant is unimportant and the response to the analysis pulse is predicted by theory for planar conditions. Similarly, ranges of parameters are found for(More)
A series of analogues of the protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitory natural product balanol which bear modified benzophenone subunits are described. The analogues were designed with the goal of uncovering structure-activity features that could be used in the development of PKC inhibitors with a reduced polar character compared to balanol itself. The results of(More)
A series of balanol analogs in which the perhydroazepine ring and the p-hydroxybenzamide moiety were combined into an acyclic linked unit have been prepared and evaluated for their inhibitory properties against the serine/threonine kinase PKC. Several low-micromolar to low-nanomolar inhibitors of the alpha, beta I, beta II, gamma, delta, epsilon and eta PKC(More)
