A facile one-pot expeditious synthesis of 2-amino-4H-pyrans and 2-amino-5-oxo-5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-4H-chromenes has been described under solvent-free conditions using magnesium oxide as a catalyst in very good yields. The reaction catalyst, magnesium oxide was reused and recycled without any loss of activity and product yield. All the synthesized compounds(More)
Mouse LTK- cells (H-2k) were transfected with a series of recombinant plasmids consisting of the herpes simplex virus type 1 thymidine kinase (TK) gene linked to fragments of SV40 DNA coding for portions of SV40 T antigen in pBR322, and TK+ transformants (LTK+) were selected in HAT medium. The TK+ transformants were analyzed for SV40 transplantation(More)
In order to investigate the 5' terminal structural heterogeneity of the 16S size class of SV40 late RNA, we have bound an SV40 DNA fragment labeled at its 5' termini with P32 to the .939-.945 map unit region of late lytic cytoplasmic polyadenylated RNA, used reverse transcriptase to prepare cDNA copies of the 5' termini of this RNA, separated the cDNA(More)
Key aspects of the biosynthesis and catalytic specificity of lysyl oxidase (LO) have been explored. Oxidation of peptidyl lysine in synthetic oligopeptides is markedly sensitive to the presence of vicinal dicarboxylic ami/no acid residues. Optimal activity is obtained with the -Glu-Lys- sequence within a polyglycine 11-mer, whereas the -Lys-Glu- sequence is(More)
We have studied the structure of polyadenylated virus-specific cytoplasmic mRNA's in mouse and human cells transformed by simian virus 40 and in monkey cells infected with simian virus 40 in the presence of cytosine arabinoside by means of reverse transcriptase-catalyzed complementary DNA synthesis and complementary DNA sequencing. Abundant mRNA species(More)
The 16 S mRNA that directs the synthesis of VP1, the major structural protein of Simian virus 40 (SV40), is composed of a leader sequence of 203 nucleotides joined to a transcript that contains all the codons for VP1. The leader is transcribed from DNA between 0.723 and 0.762 map units while the VP1 coding transcript is copied from DNA from 0.94 to 0.17 map(More)
