Intra-cardiac cell transplantation is a new therapy after myocardial infarction. Its success, however, is impeded by the limited capacity of donor cells to differentiate into functional cardiomyocytes in the heart. A strategy to overcome this problem is the induction of cardiomyogenic function in cells prior to transplantation. Among other approaches,(More)
In the title compound, [Fe(CH(3)CN)(3)(C(29)H(27)N(5)OP(2))](BF(4))(2)·2CH(3)CN, the Fe(II) ion is octa-hedrally coordinated by a meridionally chelating tridentate pincer-type PNP ligand derived from 2,6-diamino-4-eth-oxy-1,3,5-triazine and by three acetonitrile mol-ecules. The four Fe-N bond lengths range from 1.9142 (12) to 1.9579 (11) Å, while the Fe-P(More)
The synthesis of 2,6-diamino-substituted purines is reported starting from 2,6-dichloropurine via two subsequent selective nucleophilic substitution reactions. The first substitution takes place selectively in 6-, the second in 2-position. The compounds were synthesized as structural analogs of reversine, a substance which was reported to possess the(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Cell transplantation into the heart is a new therapy after myocardial infarction. Its success, however, is impeded by poor donor cell survival and by limited transdifferentiation of the transplanted cells into functional cardiomyocytes. A promising strategy to overcome these problems is the induction of cardiomyogenic properties in donor(More)
