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 formation of C C bonds is a process of utmost importance in organic synthesis. Catalytic methods can realize such reactions. Prominent reactions in this regard are metal-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions of organo (pseudo) halides and various metal organyls. The great success of these reactions led to a Nobel Prize for Akira Suzuki, Richard Heck, and(More)
The complex dication of the diruthenium(II) compound {(mu-tppz)[Ru(bik)Cl]2}(ClO4)2 can be oxidized and reduced in two one-electron steps each. In CH3CN/0.1 M Bu4NPF6, the odd-electron intermediates{(mu-tppz)[Ru(bik)Cl]2}n+, n=1 and 3, have comproportionation constants of 7x10(8) and 1x10(5), respectively. Both exhibit near-infrared absorptions, in the case(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)
