The hydrophobicity of particulate polymeric acrylic adjuvants was altered by insertion of hydroxyl groups, exchange of a methyl group against a cyano group or elongation of the ester side chain length. These adjuvants were tested by determination of the antibody response after immunization using bovine serum albumin or by measuring the protection against(More)
The formylated spirobyclic alcohol was computer modeled to be a mimetic of paclitaxel. In this model, the formyl group was used as a truncated paclitaxel side chain in order to reduce the computational work. Compound , carrying the paclitaxel side chain, was synthesized in six steps from optically active 1,3-diketone . Microtubule stabilization was not(More)
The influence of the particle size of poly(methyl methacrylate) and polystyrene particles on the adjuvant effect of model vaccines was investigated in mice using bovine serum albumin as the antigen. The particle sizes of the adjuvants were between 62 and 306 nm. Smaller particles yielded a much better adjuvant effect than bigger particles. The adjuvant(More)
Novel propranolol analogues have been designed and synthesised and their enantioselective binding to the cellulose degrading enzyme, Cel7A, has been evaluated. Affinity and enantioselectivity have been determined by capillary electrophoresis experiments. Ligands with significantly improved affinity and selectivity have been obtained and an analysis of the(More)
An intramolecular NEMO potential is presented for the N-formylglycinamide molecule together with an intermolecular potential for the N-formylglycinamide-water system. The intramolecular N-formylglycinamide potential can be used as a building block for the backbone of polypeptides and proteins. Two intramolecular minima have been obtained. One, denoted as(More)
The affinity and enantioselectivity have been determined for designed propranolol derivatives as ligands for Cel7A by capillary electrophoresis (CE) at pH 7.0. These results have been compared to measurements at pH 5.0. In agreement with previous studies, the affinity increased at the higher pH. However, the affinity was not as dependent of the ligand(More)
A convenient experimental method for thermodynamical studies based on partial-filling affinity CE is presented. The advantages of this approach are the possibility to determine binding energies from relatively weak interactions as well as the small amounts of samples consumed. In order to explore the affinity and selectivity of the cellobiohydrolase Cel7A,(More)
Attempts to prepare a colchicine analog with a 5-membered B-ring by remote metalation of N,N-diethyl-3,4,5-trimethoxy-2-(5'-methoxy-4'-oxo-2', 5',7'-cycloheptatrienyl)-benzamide (2) led to ring contraction of the methoxytropone ring to the p-methoxycarbonylphenyl derivative (3). Dynamic 1H NMR investigations showed that the biaryl amide 2 exists as a(More)
When 7-oxodesacetamidothiocolchicine (1) was treated with various peroxides in order to afford a Baeyer-Villiger rearrangement, a complex mixture of products was formed, which included the sulfoxide, (2) and sulfone, (3). When peracetic acid was used two additional products were formed; a C-ring lactone (4) and a ring-contracted allocolchicine derivative(More)
