Synthesis of a new fluorescent rhodamine derivative, dye 1, is reported. This probe is different from other rhodamines insofar as it has several (four) carboxylic acid functionalities to promote water solubility and facilitate conjugation to proteins. It also has an aryl bromide functionality that could, in principle, be used to further functionalize the(More)
A special, water-soluble, fluorescent probe 1 was designed. This consisted of a fluorescein-based component to harvest irradiation at 488 nm and a rhodamine-based part designed to emit it at a significantly longer wavelength. This cassette was used to label an illustrative protein called ACBP. Evidence was accumulated to support the assertion that ACBP-1(More)
It is demonstrated that single-molecule tracking of a fluorescently labeled protein undergoing transient binding to model membranes presents a useful method of obtaining fluid properties. The labeled ACBP protein was tracked during its binding to free-standing giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs) and supported bilayers prepared from the GUVs in the same(More)
Fluorescent molecules that emit in the near infra-red are potentially useful as probes for biotechnology. A relatively under-explored design for probes of this type are the aza-BODIPY dyes; this study was performed to enhance our understanding of these materials and ways in which they may be used in dye cassette systems. Thus, the aza-BODIPY dyes 1a - g(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) often results in chronic inflammatory and autoimmune disorders, and recent developments in understanding the disease pathogenesis has lead to newer therapeutic options for the treatment of the disease. The development of small molecule drugs with improved efficacy, better tolerability, and oral administration has received a new(More)
A new UPLC-TOF/MS compatible, reverse phase-stability indicating method was developed for determination of Omeprazole (OMP) and its related substances in pharmaceutical dosage forms by implementing Design of Experiment (DoE) i.e. two level full factorial Design (2(3)+3 center points=11 experiments) to understand the Critical Method Parameters (CMP) and its(More)
New stilbene (CAS 56-53-1) derivatives have been synthesized by reductive elimination of desoxybenzoin analogs which were obtained by Fries rearrangement of the corresponding phenolic esters. The chemical structures of the compounds obtained were confirmed by 1H-NMR, IR and elemental analysis. Anti-implantation activity of the compounds was determined by(More)
The development of a practical and scalable process for the asymmetric synthesis of sitagliptin is reported. Density functional theory calculations reveal that two noncovalent interactions are responsible for the high diastereoselection. The first is an intramolecular hydrogen bond between the enamide NH and the boryl mesylate S═O, consistent with MsOH(More)
