We describe here an application of the practical, simple, and reliable approach for the determination of the absolute configuration of sterically demanding tert/tert vic-diols. According to this method, it is only necessary to mix dimolybdenum tetraacteate and a chiral diol in DMSO and record the CD spectra in the 250-650 nm spectral range. From the sign of… (More)
A series of new peptide dendrimers with amphiphilic surface, designed around a dendronized ornithine (Orn) core were synthesized and characterized by ESI-MS, ¹H-, ¹³C- NMR, and CD spectrometry. An improved antimicrobial potency against S. aureus and E. coli was detected as a result of an increased charge, higher branching and variable lipophilicity of the… (More)
Antimicrobial drug resistance is a major human health threat. Among the many attempts to tackle this problem, the synthesis of antimicrobial compounds that mimic natural antimicrobial peptides appears as a promising approach. Peptide-based dendrimers can be designed to have higher potency than natural antimicrobial peptides and at the same time they can… (More)
Novel polyfunctional small amphiphilic peptide dendrimers characterized by incorporation of a new core compounds - tris-amino acids or tetrakis-amino alcohols that originated from a series of basic amino acids - were efficiently synthesized. These new core elements yielded molecules with multiple branching and (+5)/(+6) charge at the 1-st dendrimer… (More)
[reaction: see text] Upon photoirradiation of a 1:1 inclusion complex of (-)-3 and 2-alkyl-1-pyridone (1) (R = Et, n-Pr, i-Pr, n-Bu, i-Bu) in the solid state, optically active beta-lactams (2) of 91-99.5% ee were obtained in good yield.
A series of low-generation dendrimeric peptides was synthesized in an attempt to evaluate their antimicrobial potency. All tested dendrimeric peptides in which lysine was a starting and branching element expressed moderate activity against Staphylococcus aureus NCTC 4163, and Escherichia coli NCTC 8196.
It has recently been shown that a newly synthesized peptide dendrimers possess antimicrobial activity against Gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus) and Gram-negative (Escherichia coli) bacteria as well as against fungal pathogens (Candida albicans) [Klajnert, B., Janiszewska, J., Urbanczyk-Lipkowska, Z., Bryszewska, M., Shcharbin, D., Labieniec, M., 2006.… (More)
A series of new cationic lipopeptides containing branched, amphiphilic polar head derived from (Lys)Lys(Lys) dendron and C(8) or C(12) chain at C-end were designed, synthesized and characterized. Antimicrobial in vitro activity expressed as minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) was evaluated against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and yeasts from… (More)
A series of new, low molecular mass, lysine-based peptide dendrimers with varying distribution of cationic and aromatic groups in the structure were synthesized. They expressed antimicrobial activity against Gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus) and Gram-negative (Escherichia coli) bacteria as well as against fungal pathogens (Candida albicans). Their… (More)
A concept of application of dendrimer chemistry for construction of 'non-sequential pharmacophore', mimicking active conformation of linear antimicrobial peptides, is introduced. It resulted in the synthesis of a family of low- molecular-weight basic peptide dendrimers with antimicrobial properties against Staphylococcus aureus (Gram-positive), Escherichia… (More)
