Monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG) and digalactosyldiacylglycerol (DGDG) are the main lipids in photosynthetic membranes in plant cells. They are synthesized in the envelope surrounding plastids by MGD and DGD galactosyltransferases. These galactolipids are critical for the biogenesis of photosynthetic membranes, and they act as a source of polyunsaturated(More)
A piperidinyl-benzimidazolone scaffold has been found in the structure of different inhibitors of membrane glycerolipid metabolism, acting on enzymes manipulating diacylglycerol and phosphatidic acid. Screening a focus library of piperidinyl-benzimidazolone analogs might therefore identify compounds acting against infectious parasites. We first evaluated(More)
This article describes the design and optimization of a catalytic enantioselective three-component hetero-[4+2] cycloaddition/allylboration reaction between 3-boronoacrolein, enol ethers, and aldehydes to afford alpha-hydroxyalkyl dihydropyrans. The key substrate, 3-boronoacrolein pinacolate (2) was found to be an exceptionally reactive heterodiene in the(More)
We have developed a synthesis of new allylboration reagents based on an allylic rearrangement. This approach led to the alpha-substituted gamma-alkoxyallylboronates 2 with a high stereoselectivity in favor of the E-isomer, independent of the organometallic used. We have also studied the reactivity of these reagents toward aldehydes, showing that the(More)
