We report a highly enantioselective [3 + 2] annulation between 3-butynoates and β-trifluoromethyl enones, furnishing trifluoromethylated cyclopentenes with three contiguous stereogenic centers in good yields, high diastereoselectivities, and excellent enantioselectivities. A unique catalytic system consisting of a simple amine and a chiral phosphine was devised, and the synergistic play of Lewis basic amine and phosphine was crucial for alkyne isomerization and subsequent cyclization. The protocol disclosed herein allows facile activation of 3-butynoates in phosphine-mediated asymmetric transformations.

Treatment modality for DENTAL CARIES that uses manual excavation method and GLASS IONOMER CEMENTS. Because of its noninvasiveness and no need for expensive equipment and anesthesia it is promoted as an approach in places where dental care is not readily available.
A dual inhibitor of both cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase pathways. It exerts an anti-inflammatory effect by inhibiting the formation of prostaglandins and leukotrienes. The drug also enhances pulmonary hypoxic vasoconstriction and has a protective effect after myocardial ischemia.
A dihydropyridine derivative, which, in contrast to NIFEDIPINE, functions as a calcium channel agonist. The compound facilitates Ca2+ influx through partially activated voltage-dependent Ca2+ channels, thereby causing vasoconstrictor and positive inotropic effects. It is used primarily as a research tool.
A group of homologous proteins which form the intermembrane channels of GAP JUNCTIONS. The connexins are the products of an identified gene family which has both highly conserved and highly divergent regions. The variety contributes to the wide range of functional properties of gap junctions.
A protein family characterized by a highly conserved N-terminus and four to six transmembrane helices; they function as bicarbonate permeable, calcium-activated chloride channels. Bestrophin-1 (BEST-1) and bestrophin-2 are highly expressed in human RETINAL PIGMENT EPITHELIUM cells and mutations in the BEST-1 gene are associated with VITELLIFORM MACULAR DYSTROPHY, TYPE 2.
