A new concept in organocatalysis is presented, the direct asymmetric gamma-functionalization of alpha,beta-unsaturated aldehydes. We disclose that secondary amines can invert the usual reactivity of alpha,beta-unsaturated aldehydes, enabling a direct gamma-amination of the carbonyl compound using azodicarboxylates as the electrophilic nitrogen-source. The(More)
A series of 3-substituted-1-isopropyl-1H-pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidin-4-amines have been designed, synthesized, and evaluated as RET protein kinase inhibitors. On the basis of docking results, a small library of pyrazolopyrimidine compounds with an extended hydrophobic side arm was synthesized. The most promising of the compounds (7a) displayed efficient(More)
Efficient routes to 3-(1,2,3-triazol-1-yl)- and 3-(1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidin-4-amines using a one-pot two-step reaction are presented. The two routes give easy access to two different isomers of 1,4-disubstituted triazoles and the target compounds are obtained from a variety of readily available aromatic and aliphatic halides without(More)
To increase the diversity of fluorescent base analogues with improved properties, we here present the straightforward click-chemistry-based synthesis of a novel fluorescent adenine-analogue triazole adenine (A(T)) and its photophysical characterization inside DNA. A(T) shows promising properties compared to the widely used adenine analogue 2-aminopurine.(More)
We present a single cell study of a highly effective Hog1 inhibitor. For this application, we used sequential treatment of a Saccharomyces cerevisiae cell array, with the Hog1 inhibitor and osmotic stress. For this purpose, a four-inlet microfluidic chamber with controlled introduction of two different cell strains within the same experimental setting and a(More)
The RET tyrosine kinase receptor has emerged as a target in thyroid and endocrine resistant breast cancer. We previously reported the synthesis of kinase inhibitors with potent activity against RET. Herein, we have further investigated the effect of the lead compound SPP86 on RET mediated signaling and proliferation. Based on these observations, we(More)
"Ruth" helps iron! A novel method for the non-enzymatic dynamic kinetic resolution (DKR) of secondary aryl alcohols by the use of the planar chiral ferrocene derivative (+)-1 in combination with the ruthenium racemization catalyst 2 yields acetylated alcohols in high enantioselectivity and yield. This development opens opportunities for new developments in(More)
3-(4-Fluorophenyl)-2-(4-pyridyl)chromone derivatives were synthesized and evaluated as p38 MAP kinase inhibitors. Introduction of an amino group in the 2-position of the pyridyl moiety gave p38α inhibitors with IC(50) in the low nanomolar range (e.g., IC(50) = 17 nm). The inhibitors showed excellent selectivity profiles when tested on a panel of 62 kinases,(More)
The transition states for methane activation in liquid superacid have been studied by experimentally determined secondary kinetic deuterium isotope effects (SKIEs) and computational chemistry. For the first time, the SKIEs on hydrogen/deuterium exchange of methane have been measured by using the methane isotopologues in homogeneous liquid superacid(More)
