PNA Synthesis by Novel Amide Formation
Poster Aug 31, 2007
Benzothiazole-2-sulfonyl (Bts) has been reported as an amine-protecting group of amino acid, and the stability of sulfonamide and the mild deprotection conditions are attractive properties for a protecting group. Due to the strong electron-withdrawing effect of the sulfonyl group, the acyl group of acylsulfonamideis easily attacked by nucleophiles after alkylation which was applied in the safety-catch strategy or the synthesis of a peptide thioester for native chemical ligation of the peptide. Using these characteristics of Bts, we designed self-activated cyclic PNA monomers. Herein we report a new type of cyclic PNA monomer and a new efficient method of PNA oligomer synthesis using Bts as an amine-protecting group.
Application of Solid Phase Micro Extraction (SPME) and On‐Fiber Derivatization to Detect Precursors of Biomolecules in the study of Proto‐metabolismPoster
In the studies of origins of life, plausible synthetic reaction pathways to form biological relevant molecules, or building blocks of proto‐bilayer lipids, protein, RNA, and DNA in the primitive environment have been investigated intensively.READ MORE
A Tissue-based Proteomic Study of VEGFR2 in Human Term PlacentasPoster
VEGFR2 is the main regulator of placental angiogenesis and at term is localized in endothelial cells (EC) of the villous vasculature. VEGFR2 immunoprecipitation (IP) of membrane proteins, extracted from the fetal compartment, isolated 30 proteins that were identified by proteomic analysis.READ MORE
