Ensemble-Based Modeling And Rigidity Decomposition Of Allosteric Interaction Networks And Communication Pathways In Cyclin-Dependent Kinases: Differentiating Kinase Clients Of The Hsp90-Cdc37 Chaperone, Gabrielle Stetz, Amanda Tse, Gennady M. Verkhivker

Mathematics, Physics, and Computer Science Faculty Articles and Research

The overarching goal of delineating molecular principles underlying differentiation of protein kinase clients and chaperone-based modulation of kinase activity is fundamental to understanding activity of many oncogenic kinases that require chaperoning of Hsp70 and Hsp90 systems to attain a functionally competent active form. Despite structural similarities and common activation mechanisms shared by cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) proteins, members of this family can exhibit vastly different chaperone preferences. The molecular determinants underlying chaperone dependencies of protein kinases are not fully understood as structurally similar kinases may often elicit distinct regulatory responses to the chaperone. The regulatory divergences observed for members of CDK ...


Progress Toward Phidianidine Analogues Containing A 1,2,3-Triazole Ring, David Laws III, Dillon King, Bryan H. Wakefield 2017 Coastal Carolina University

Progress Toward Phidianidine Analogues Containing A 1,2,3-Triazole Ring, David Laws Iii, Dillon King, Bryan H. Wakefield

Journal of the South Carolina Academy of Science

Phidianidines are a class of compound that has been extracted from the sea mollusk Phidianis militaris. These compounds have been shown to exhibit a variety of useful properties such as antihistamine effects, anti-cancer activity, agonism of the µ-opioid receptor and neuroprotection. The biological activities are thought to be caused by the 1,2,4- oxadiazole ring found within the molecule. The goal of this project is to synthesize analogues of phidianidine that contain a 1,2,3-triazole instead of the 1,2,4 oxadiazole ring using a method that will allow for other regions of the molecule to be changed ...

Chemistry Publications

Germination is a highly complex process by which seeds begin to develop and establish themselves as viable organisms. In this paper, we utilize a combination of GC-MS, LC-fluorescence, and mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) approaches to profile and visualize the metabolic distributions of germinating seeds from two different inbreds of maize seeds, B73 and Mo17. GC and LC analyses demonstrate that the two inbreds are highly differentiated in their metabolite profiles throughout the course of germination, especially with regard to amino acids, sugar alcohols, and small organic acids. Crude dissection of the seed followed by GC-MS analysis of polar metabolites also ...

Optimizing Synthesis Of Substituted Oxadiazole Based Liquid Crystal Compounds.Pptx, Blake Bordokas

Blake Bordokas

The liquid crystalline phase is a sensitive state of matter in which molecules exist between a solid and a liquid. Molecules in this state possess the ability to be reoriented by an electric field, which makes them extremely useful in display technology for devices such as computer monitors, smart phones, etc. A group of bent-core liquid crystalline compounds show a particularly unique type of liquid crystal phase that has promising traits which could be exploited to improve display technology. In this project we propose a simpler, more cost effective synthesis for these liquid crystals which we hope will allow us ...


Stereospecific Electrophilic Fluorination Of Alkylcarbastannatrane Reagents, Xinghua Ma 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

Stereospecific Electrophilic Fluorination Of Alkylcarbastannatrane Reagents, Xinghua Ma

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The introduction of fluorine atoms into organic molecules significantly changes their physical, chemical, and biological properties. Fluorinated organic compounds are used as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, materials, and tracers for positron emission tomography (PET). For example, the site-specific fluorination of drugs can block sites of phase I metabolism by cytochrome P450 enzymes as well as improve target-binding affinities. In view of the unique features of fluorine-containing compounds, there has been increasing interest in the development of novel methods for the synthesis of fluorinated molecules, especially the site-specific monofluorination of complex molecules. Herein, we present the enantiospecific conversion of chiral secondary alkylcarbastannatranes into ...

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

The field of organic semiconductors have gained enormous attention the past few decades. Organic materials offer numerous advantages over their inorganic counterparts. Recently a number of works have demonstrated organic semiconductors with healable properties. We aim to investigate the healable ability of an organic semiconductor by mimicking a vitrimer system through the reversible dioxaborolane bond. Vitrimers are polymers with reversible crosslink system. It has been reported that the use of the borane-oxygen bond as the crosslink showed good mechanical performance. The electrical properties will be inspected for the vitrimer-like polymer. In this report we describe a Diketopyrrolopyrrole base polymer incorporating ...


Electronic Structure Evaluation Of Competing Pathways In The Gold(Iii)-Catalyzed Ohloff-Rautenstrauch Cyclosimerization Converting Propargylic Acetates To Carene-Like Natural Products, Jeremy M. Hines 2017 Missori State University

Electronic Structure Evaluation Of Competing Pathways In The Gold(Iii)-Catalyzed Ohloff-Rautenstrauch Cyclosimerization Converting Propargylic Acetates To Carene-Like Natural Products, Jeremy M. Hines

MSU Graduate Theses

Propargylic acetates can lead to complex transformations upon exposure to a gold catalyst. Gold catalyzed transformations also allow for simple synthesis of a number of natural products. Gold (III)-cycloisomerization of a 5-acetoxy-1,6-enyne is reported to proceed through two pathways that differ in the order of major events: cyclization followed by ester migration (“cyclization first”) or the reverse (“migration first”). Both pathways could theoretically proceed in either order. This rearrangement is called the Ohloff-Rautenstrauch rearrangement and has high regio- and stereocontrol affording a bicylo[4.1.0]heptane carbon substructure. This rearrangement allows for the synthesis of the carene ...


The Functionalization Of N-Cyclobutylanilines Under Photoredox Catalysis, Jiang Wang 2017 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

The Functionalization Of N-Cyclobutylanilines Under Photoredox Catalysis, Jiang Wang

Theses and Dissertations

While transition metal catalyzed cross coupling reactions have become one of the most useful strategies in constructing carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom bond formations, major disadvantages such as high reaction temperature, expansive metal catalysts input and limited reaction substrates scope have significantly downshifted the applications of those two electron involved transformations. Comparably, the studies on the redox coupling reactions are less investigated. Derived from single electron transfer process, the redox coupling reactions can be used to construct otherwise challenging chemical bonds efficiently, such as Csp3-Csp3 bond. Recently, visible light mediated photoredox catalysis has merged as a highly prominent tool in the development ...

Enantioselective Γ- And Δ -Borylation Of Unsaturated Carbonyl Derivatives: Synthesis, Mechanistic Insights, And Applications., Gia L. Hoang

Student Research Projects, Dissertations, and Theses - Chemistry Department

Chiral boronic esters are valuable synthetic intermediates widely used in a variety of stereospecific transformations. Transition metal-catalyzed asymmetric hydroboration (CAHB) of alkenes is among the most popular methods for their preparation. Enantioselective hydroboration of activated alkenes (i.e., vinyl arene derivatives or conjugated carbonyl compounds) have been extensively studied by many research groups. We, on the other hand, are interested in enantioselective hydroboration of unactivated alkenes utilizing coordinating functional groups (e.g., carbonyl derivatives) to give functionalized, chiral boronic esters. While conjugate addition and C–H activation methodologies provide efficient alternatives to CAHB for enantioselective beta-borylation of carbonyl compounds, direct ...

Synthesis And Catalytic Evaluation Of Novel C-Alpha-Methyl-Beta-Proline Analogues, And Concise Synthetic Approach To Nh-Fmoc-S-Trityl-C-Alpha-Methyl Cysteine, Hari Kiran Kotapati

Dissertations

In the field of chemistry there is a growing demand for small molecule organocatalysts such as amino acids, more specifically proline and its analogues, which could catalyze various key chemical reactions in the synthesis of several biologically important molecules. Even though natural proline is reported to catalyze various chemical reactions, its use as organocatalyst is limited mainly due to the solubility issues in the reaction media and high catalyst loadings, which is not very ideal for bulk scale manufacturing. To address these limitations we planned to develop unnatural analogues of proline that could catalyze the reactions with lower catalyst loadings ...


Synthesis And Characterization Of Benzalkonium Salts As Potential Antimicrobial Agents, Saad S. Alotaibi 2017 Clark Atlanta University

Synthesis And Characterization Of Benzalkonium Salts As Potential Antimicrobial Agents, Saad S. Alotaibi

Electronic Theses & Dissertations Collection for Atlanta University & Clark Atlanta University

One of the most significant classes of industrial chemicals is benzalkonium salts. Benzalkonium salts have application in large number of commercial products. Benzalkonium salts enhance cationic surface activity and this particular property results in the salts being useful biocides, detergents, and disinfectants. Their antimicrobial activities depend on the structure of the side alkyl chain. For instance, long alkyl chains of C12 were most effective against fungi, yeast, and ophthalmic solution, C14 were effective against gram-positive bacteria, and C16 were effective against gram-negative bacteria. To add them to the databank of structure activity relationships (SAR) of benzalkonium salts ...
