An efficient procedure for transesterification of methyl caffeate was developed to produce caffeic acid phenethyl ester analogues with Candida antarctica lipase B using an ionic liquid, 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide, as a solvent. The system provided 48.8mM 2-cyclohexylethyl caffeate and 46.9 mM 3-cyclohexylpropyl caffeate(More)
Cellotriose and cellotetraose analogues carrying cyclohexene rings were developed as molecular probes which are expected to mimic the transition state conformation of hydrolysis by cellulases. The cyclohexene ring was placed at the pyranose ring being expected to locate the -1 subsite of the enzyme. In order to evaluate these probes, sulfur derivatives of(More)
Recent advances in microscopy enable the acquisition of large numbers of tomographic images from living tissues. Three-dimensional microscope images are often displayed with volume rendering by adjusting the transfer functions. However, because the emissions from fluorescent materials and the optical properties based on point spread functions affect the(More)
