A series of prevailing prenylated furanocoumarins from leaves of Dorstenia gigas and Dorstenia foetida (Moraceae) were investigated by liquid chromatography/electrospray tandem mass spectrometry. The mass spectral behavior of the furanocoumarins under positive ion electrospray conditions is discussed using both an ion trap and a triple quadrupole system. It(More)
A library of ten 1,3-diyne-linked peptoids has been synthesized through an Ugi four-component reaction (U-4CR) followed by a copper-catalysed alkyne homocoupling (Glaser reaction). The short and chemoselective reaction sequence allows generating diverse (pseudo) dimeric peptoids. A combinatorial version allows the one-pot preparation of, e.g.,(More)
Di- and triguanidinylation of trehalose, sucrose, and melizitose has been achieved via a Huisgen-cycloaddition approach. They can serve as aminoglycoside-arginine conjugate mimics, which has been demonstrated by their biological profiles in assays against Bacillus subtilis. For comparative studies, tetraguanidinylated neamine and kanamycin derivatives have(More)
Benzophenanthridine alkaloids are strong antimicrobials of Papaveraceae and attractive lead compounds for drug development. The cytotoxicity of these compounds requires the producing plant to limit the pathogen-triggered burst of biosynthesis. Cells of Eschscholzia californica excrete early benzophenanthridines to the cell wall, followed by re-uptake and(More)
The reliable assessment of the biological activity of a minor component embedded in a complex matrix of several hundred compounds is a difficult but common task in the search for natural product-based antibiotics, for example, by bioassay-guided fractionation. To quantify the antibiotic properties, it is necessary to assess the cell viability. Direct(More)
The linear furanocoumarins 5-(2,3-epoxy-3-methyl-butoxy)-chalepensin, 5-methoxy-3-(3-methyl-2,3-dihydroxybutyl)-psoralen-diacetate (7), 5-methoxy-3-[3-(β-D-glucopyranosyloxy)-2-acetyloxy-3-methyl-butyl]-psoralen and 5-(3-methyl-2,3-dihydroxybutyloxy)-3-[3-(β-D-glucopyranosyloxy)-2-hydroxy-3-methyl-butyl]-psoralen, and the coumarin derivative(More)
The combination of Raman spectroscopy with chemometrics has gained significant importance within the last years to address a broad variety of biomedical and life science questions. However, the routine application of chemometric models to analyze Raman spectra recorded with Raman devices different from the device used to establish the model is extremely(More)
The genus Suillus is known for the occurrence of a series of prenylated phenols and boviquinones. The extracts of four different Suillus species [S. bovinus, S. granulatus, S. tridentinus and S.variegatus) were investigated by using rapid ultra-performance Liquid chromatography/electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (UPLC/ESI-MS) and direct infusion(More)
Liquid chromatography negative ion electrospray ionisation tandem mass spectrometry has been used for characterisation of naturally occurring prenylated fungal metabolites and synthetic derivatives. The fragmentation studies allow an elucidation of the decomposition pathways for these compounds. It could be shown, that the prenyl side chain is degraded by(More)
