Proteins: Structure, Function, and Bioinformatics

Archaeal roots of intramembrane aspartyl protease siblings signal peptide peptidase and presenilin

Published: 01 October 2020

Author(s): Priyam Raut, Jennifer B. Glass, Raquel L. Lieberman

Abstract Signal peptides help newly synthesized proteins reach the cell membrane or be secreted. As part of a biological process key to immune response and surveillance in humans, and associated with diseases, for example, Alzheimer, remnant signal peptides and other transmembrane segments are proteolyzed by the intramembrane aspartyl protease (IAP) enzyme family. Here, we identified IAP orthologs throughout the tree of life. In addition to eukaryotes, IAPs are encoded in metabolically diverse...

Aqueous Co‐Solvent in Zwitterionic‐based Protic Ionic Liquids as Electrolytes in 2.0 V Supercapacitors

Published: 01 October 2020

Author(s): Xuejun Lu, José Manuel Vicent‐Luna, Sofia Calero, María J. Roldán‐Ruiz, Ricardo Jiménez, M. Luisa Ferrer, María C. Gutiérrez, Francisco Monte

Abstract High‐performance energy‐storage devices are receiving great interest in sustainable terms as a required complement to renewable energy sources to level out the imbalances between supply and demand. Besides electrode optimization, a primary objective is also the judicious design of high‐performance electrolytes combining novel ionic liquids (ILs) and mixtures of aqueous solvents capable of offering “à la carte” properties. Herein, it is described the stoichiometric addition of a...

Cyclotide Structures Revealed by NMR, with a Little Help from X‐ray Crystallography

Published: 01 October 2020

Author(s): Thomas N. G. Handley, Conan K. Wang, Peta J. Harvey, Nicole Lawrence, David J. Craik

Abstract This review highlights the predominant role that NMR has had in determining the structures of cyclotides, a fascinating class of macrocyclic peptides found in plants. Cyclotides contain a cystine knot, a compact structural motif that is constrained by three disulfide bonds and able to resist chemical and biological degradation. Their resistance to proteolytic degradation has made cyclotides appealing as drug leads. Herein, we examine the developments that led to the identification and...

Synthesis of 4‐Acylchromene via Highly Chemoselective Iodine‐Catalyzed Cyclization of Alkynylarylether Dimethylacetals

Published: 01 October 2020

Author(s): Warabhorn Rodphon, Charnsak Thongsornkleeb, Jumreang Tummatorn, Somsak Ruchirawat

Abstract 4‐Acylchromene is an important core structure found in bioactive natural products and bioactive synthetic compounds. Moreover, this core structure is frequently used as a key precursor for the synthesis of more complex molecules. In this work, we discovered that a combination of acetone and catalytic I2 could lead to selective activation of acetal in alkynylarylether dimethylacetal substrates while alkyne moiety remained intact. This activation of acetal led to the generation of...

Building N‐Heterocyclic Carbene into Triazine‐Linked Polymer for Multiple CO2 Utilization

Published: 01 October 2020

Author(s): Chengtao Yue, Wenlong Wang, Fuwei Li

Abstract The development of new CO2 detection technologies and CO2 “capture‐conversion” materials is of great significance due to the growing environmental crisis. Here, multifunctional triazine‐linked polymers with built‐in N‐heterocyclic carbene (NHC) sites (designated as NHC‐triazine@polymer) are presented for simultaneous CO2 detection, capture, activation, and catalytic conversion. NHC‐triazine@polymer were readily obtained through polymerization of cyanophenyl‐substituted NHC. The...

CheKiPEUQ Intro 1: Bayesian Parameter Estimation Considering Uncertainty or Error from both Experiments and Theory

Published: 01 October 2020

Author(s): Aditya Savara, Eric A. Walker

Abstract A common goal is extraction of physico‐chemical parameter values such as pre‐exponentials and activation energies from experiment. Ever increasing knowledge from experiments and computations is enabling semi‐quantitative prior predictions of such values. When prior knowledge of physically realistic ranges is available, a method named Bayesian parameter estimation (BPE) enables more physically realistic parameter estimation relative to unsophisticated fitting by seeking the most...

Unified Total Synthesis of (−)‐Enigmazole A and (−)‐15‐O‐Methylenigmazole A

Published: 01 October 2020

Author(s): Keisuke Sakurai, Keita Sakamoto, Makoto Sasaki, Haruhiko Fuwa

Abstract The total synthesis of cytotoxic marine phosphomacrolides, (−)‐enigmazole A and (−)‐15‐O‐methylenigmazole A, is described in detail. The 2,6‐cis‐substituted tetrahydropyran ring was efficiently elaborated by using a tandem olefin cross‐metathesis/intramolecular oxa‐Michael addition reaction. The 18‐membered macrolactone skeleton was forged via a Au‐catalyzed propargylic benzoate rearrangement/macrocyclic ring‐closing metathesis sequence. Late‐stage diversification of a common...

Disulfide Promoted C−P Bond Cleavage of Phosphoramide: “P” Surrogates to Synthesize Phosphonates and Phosphinates

Published: 01 October 2020

Author(s): Fei Hou, Xing‐Peng Du, Anwar I. Alduma, Zhi‐Feng Li, Cong‐De Huo, Xi‐Cun Wang, Xiao‐Feng Wu, Zheng‐Jun Quan

Abstract A metal‐free C−P bond cleavage reaction is described herein. Phosphoramides, a phosphine source, can react with alcohols to produce phosphonate and phosphinate derivatives in the presence of a disulfide. P−H2, P‐alkyl, and P,P‐dialkyl phosphoramides can be used as substrates to obtain the corresponding pentavalent phosphine products.

Catalyst and Additive‐Free Direct Amidation/Halogenation of Tertiary Arylamines with N‐haloimide/amides

Published: 01 October 2020

Author(s): Xiu‐Juan Xu, Adila Amuti, Abudureheman Wusiman

Abstract An approach has been developed for the amidation (halogenation) of tertiary arylamines by electrophilic activation using N‐haloimide/amides. Several control experiments have been performed, and the coupling reaction outcomes indicated that the N‐haloimide/amide brings three major functions, including electrophilic activation, aromatic halogenation and nucleophilic nitrogen sources. This cascade reaction features simple manipulation, requires no additional catalyst, oxidant or...

Construction of Boronated γ‐Lactams via Palladium‐Catalyzed Intramolecular Boryldifluoroalkylation of Alkenes

Published: 01 October 2020

Author(s): Wu‐Jie Lin, Yu‐Zhao Wang, Jian‐Yu Zou, Yi‐Chuan Zhao, Jin‐Lin Wang, Xue‐Yuan Liu

Abstract An approach for the preparation of boronated γ‐lactams via palladium‐catalyzed boryldifluoroalkylation of alkenes with α‐bromodifluoroacetamides was developed. This method exhibits good functional group tolerance. Various boronated products were obtained in moderate to good yields for 1 h. Mechanistic studies indicated that this reaction may involve an intramolecular radical cascade cyclization process.
