A gold-catalyzed synthesis of fused carbocycles via a regioselective 6-endo dig process is reported. The selectivity can be modulated by the steric and electronic properties of gold(I) complexes. The ligands can influence the pathway selectivity for the first bond formation rather than through a common intermediate generated after an initial bond formation.(More)
pSVCT3 is a cytoplasmic-localization mutant of simian virus 40 (SV40) isolated from the SV40 adenovirus 7 hybrid virus (PARA) and cloned into plasmid PBR. The large T antigen of pSVCT3 accumulates in the cytoplasm of infected monkey cells instead of being transported to the nucleus. The sole change in CT3 large T antigen is amino acid residue 128(More)
Gold(I) complexes have emerged as powerful and useful catalysts for the formation of new C-C, C-O and C-N bonds. Taking advantage of the specificity of [IPrAuNCMe][SbF6] complexes to favor the 5-exo-dig cyclization over the 6-endo-dig pathway, we report a high yielding and efficient method to generate substituted polyaromatic heterocycles under remarkably(More)
