Laccase-catalysed oxidation of ergot alkaloids in the absence of chemical mediators allowed the unexpected isolation of the mono-hydroxylated derivatives of compounds 2-7. Structure determination by NMR techniques clearly indicated that hydroxylation took place at the C-4 benzylic position. Quite notably, the proposed protocol allowed, for the first time, functionalisation at the C-4 position of the ergoline skeleton. Depending on the absence or on the presence of a C-10 α-methoxy substituent, hydroxylation was either stereoselective (furnishing C-4α OH derivatives) or gave rise to a C-4α/C-4β OH mixture in a 2:1 ratio, respectively.

The directing group assisted site selective C-H functionalization approach is having a continuous impact in the field of natural product synthesis, drug discovery and material sciences. While ortho-se...
A strain LN07 with high laccase yield was identified as basidiomycete fungus Lepista nuda from which a white laccase without type I copper was purified and characterized. The laccase was a monomeric p...
The Catellani reaction - a palladium-catalysed C-H functionalization reaction mediated by norbornene - was first reported in 1997. The capacity to functionalize both the ortho and ipso positions of ar...
Curcumin, or diferuloylmethane, a polyphenolic molecule isolated from the rhizome of Curcuma longa, is reported to modulate multiple molecular targets involved in cancer and inflammatory processes. On...
The quest for ligands that bind specifically to particular G-quadruplex nucleic acid structures is particularly important to conceive molecules with specific effects on gene expression or telomere mai...
The purpose of the Optimize RV study is to determine the long-term effect of selective site pacing. Selective site pacing refers to which area of the right ventricle the lead is placed. T...

Any of various enzymatically catalyzed post-translational modifications of PEPTIDES or PROTEINS in the cell of origin. These modifications include carboxylation; HYDROXYLATION; ACETYLATION; PHOSPHORYLATION; METHYLATION; GLYCOSYLATION; ubiquitination; oxidation; proteolysis; and crosslinking and result in changes in molecular weight and electrophoretic motility.
A species of gram-negative bacteria infecting DOGS, the natural hosts, and causing canine BRUCELLOSIS. It can also cause a mild infection in humans.
Patterns (real or mathematical) which look similar at different scales, for example the network of airways in the lung which shows similar branching patterns at progressively higher magnifications. Natural fractals are self-similar across a finite range of scales while mathematical fractals are the same across an infinite range. Many natural, including biological, structures are fractal (or fractal-like). Fractals are related to "chaos" (see NONLINEAR DYNAMICS) in that chaotic processes can produce fractal structures in nature, and appropriate representations of chaotic processes usually reveal self-similarity over time.
Mild to severe infections of the eye and its adjacent structures (adnexa) by adult or larval protozoan or metazoan parasites.
A species of gram-negative bacteria producing mild to severe ANAPLASMOSIS in SHEEP and GOATS, and mild or inapparent infections in DEER and CATTLE.
