Polyadenosine diphosphoribose glycohydrolase (PARG) catalyzes the intracellular hydrolysis of adenosine diphosphoribose polymers. Because structure-activity data are lacking for PARG, the specific inhibitor adenosine diphosphate (hydroxymethyl)pyrrolidinediol (ADP-HPD) was utilized to determine the effects of structure on inhibitor potency using PARG(More)
The overall goal of therapy for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is to achieve low disease activity or remission and to prevent or control joint damage, prevent loss of function, and decrease pain. However, many patients with RA do not have the disease adequately controlled, and only a minority attain consistent remission. To successfully treat to(More)
A synthesis of 5-substituted cyclopentylamine precursors for 5'-substituted carbocyclic nucleoside analogues was developed. We show that the stereochemistry of the OsO4-catalyzed hydroxylation of an apically brominated lactam, 7-bromo-2-azabicyclo[2.2.1]hept-5-en-3-one, can be controlled through the appropriate selection of the lactam N-H protecting group.(More)
