  1. Agonists of the nuclear receptor PPARγ are therapeutically used to combat hyperglycaemia associated with the metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. In spite of being effective in normalization of blood glucose levels, the currently used PPARγ…
  2. In order to develop a lead antimycobacterium tuberculosis compound, a series of 52, novel pyrrole hydrazine derivatives have been synthesized and screened which target the essential enoyl-ACP reductase. The binding mode of the compounds at the…
  3. Unprotected S-acylated cysteine isopeptides containing α-, β- or γ-amino acid units have been synthesized, and their conversion to native hexapeptides by S- to the N-terminus ligations involving 17-, 18- and 19-membered cyclic transition states have…
  4. Aspartic and glutamic acids were selectively extended at each of the alternative C-terminals under mild conditions to afford diverse natural and unnatural N-protected dipeptides and tripeptides in yields of 73-96%. The reactions between N-protected…
  5. An efficient approach for the synthesis of a series of S-acyl peptides containing internal cysteine residues has been developed and the chemical long-range ligation of these S-acyl peptides via 5-, 8-, 11- and 14-membered cyclic transition states…
  6. The first total synthesis of Rolloamide B, a cyclic proline-enriched heptapeptide, is reported. This work features solution phase benzotriazole-mediated peptide synthesis ligating native amino acids.
  7. A new hybrid density functional, APF, is introduced, which avoids the spurious long-range attractive or repulsive interactions that are found in most density functional theory (DFT) models. It therefore provides a sound baseline for the addition of…
