The zebrafish kidney marrow is considered to be the organ of definitive hematopoiesis, analogous to the mammalian bone marrow. We have sequenced 26,143 ESTs and isolated 304 cDNAs with putative full-length ORF from a zebrafish kidney marrow cDNA library. The ESTs formed 7,742 assemblies, representing both previously identified zebrafish ESTs (56%) and(More)
Histone methylation plays an important role in eukaryotic transcriptional regulation. A number of histone methyltransferases (HMTases) with distinct functions have been identified. The HSPC069/HYPB gene was originally isolated from the human hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (HSPCs), and it was also identified as a huntingtin interacting protein,(More)
[reaction: see text] Two novel epoxide hydrolases were discovered in mung bean (Phaseolus radiatus L.) for the first time, either of which can catalyze enantioconvergent hydrolysis of styrene epoxides. Their regioselectivity coefficients are more than 90% for the p-nitrostyrene oxide. Furthermore, the crude mung bean powder was also shown to be a cheap and(More)
Light-driven transcription, replication and enzyme catalysis are critically dependent upon a delicate transfer between molecular and supramolecular chirality. Chemists have well realized the impressive stereospecificity over many thermally accessible cycloaddition with chiral catalysts, but making light work in the enantiomer control of diarylethene(More)
The first enantioselective vinylogous aldol-cyclization cascade reaction of allyl pyrazoleamides with isatins is reported. With 1 mol% of Takemoto catalyst, optically active spirocyclic oxindole-dihydropyranones were obtained in excellent yields (93-99%) and good-to-excellent enantioselectivities (82-97% ee).
Palladium-catalyzed asymmetric intramolecular Friedel-Crafts type allylic alkylation reaction of phenols was developed under mild conditions. In the presence of Pd2(dba)3 with (1R,2R)-DACH-phenyl Trost ligand (L2) in toluene at 50 °C, the reaction provides various C4 substituted tetrahydroisoquinolines with moderate to excellent yields, regioselectivity and(More)
The first organocatalytic enantioselective Mannich reaction of pyrazoleamides with isatin-derived N-Boc ketimines has been developed to afford 2-oxindole-based chiral β-amino amides in good yields (84-97%) with excellent diastereo- and enantioselectivities (up to 99:1 dr and >99% ee).
An unprecedented Rauhut-Currier-type 1,6-conjugate addition has been developed. With chiral cyclohexane-based phosphine-amide catalyst 3 h, the 1,6-conjugate reaction has been achieved to produce chiral diarylmethine compounds in excellent yields (91-99 %) and enantioselectivities (92-98 % ee).
OBJECTIVE To determine the genome structure of human telomeric repeat binding factor 1 (TERF1) and its pseudogenes. METHODS Sequences were obtained from GenBank and analyzed using the BLAST program and other relevant biology program (Sequencher, DNA Strider and Autoassembler, etc) to determine the genome and pseudogenome structure of TERF1. PCR and(More)
The on-surface Heck reaction of aryl bromides with terminal alkene has been achieved for the first time. With palladium as the catalyst, cross-coupling of porphyrin-derived aryl bromides with terminal alkene proceeds with high selectivity on an Au(111) surface, as determined by scanning tunneling microscopy at the single molecular level. Density functional(More)
