Three xylanase genes (xynA, xynB, xynC) of glycosyl hydrolase family 10 were identified in Humicola insolens Y1. The deduced protein sequences showed the highest identity of ⩽83% to known fungal xylanases and of ⩽38% with each other. Recombinant XynA-C produced in Pichia pastoris showed optimal activities at pH 6.0-7.0 and at high temperature (70-80°C), and(More)
An endo-1,4-β-xylanase-encoding gene, xyn11B, was cloned from the thermophilic fungus Humicola insolens Y1. The gene encodes a multimodular xylanase that consists of a typical hydrophobic signal sequence, a catalytic domain of glycoside hydrolase (GH) family 11, a glycine-rich linker, and a family 1 carbohydrate binding module (CBM1). Deduced Xyn11B shares(More)
A protocol for the direct functionalization of N-H/α,α,β,β-C(sp3)-H of piperidine without any metal or external oxidants is reported. This reaction is promoted by 4-(trifluoromethyl)benzoic acid via an azomethine ylide intermediate. This is a simple method for the synthesis of spirooxindoles bearing 3-substituted oxindole moieties.
A DABCO-catalyzed domino reaction between methyleneoxindoles and allenoates which enables the direct synthesis of spirooxindoles is reported. This is the first example of a non-substituted allenoate to act as a four-carbon synthon in a tertiary amine-catalyzed reaction.
