A one-pot synthesis of 3,4,5- and 1,3,5-pyrazoles from tertiary propargylic alcohols and para-tolylsulfonohydrazide has been accomplished. The pyrazoles are formed through a four-step cascade sequence, including FeCl3 -catalyzed propargylic substitution, aza-Meyer-Schuster rearrangement, base-mediated 6π electrocyclization, and thermal [1,5] sigmatropic shift. In this reaction, the 3,4,5- and 1,3,5-pyrazoles are produced selectively according ...

Perinatal asphyxia (PA) increases the likelihood of suffering from dopamine-related disorders, such as ADHD and schizophrenia. Since dopaminergic transmission plays a major role in cocaine sensitization, the purpose of this study was to determine whether PA could be associated with altered behavioral sensitization to cocaine. To this end, adult rats ...

Patients with haemophilia (PWH) are relatively protected from cardiovascular death. Recent insights have shown that this is not due to less formation of atherosclerosis than in non-haemophilic men, therefore protection from the final occlusive thrombus will be the major determinant. Prevalence and incidence rates of cardiovascular disease (especially non-fatal events) ...

The rhodium-catalyzed intramolecular direct arylation of imidazole and benzimidazole derivatives via double C-H bond activation is described. This approach provides new access to a wide range of imidazo and benzimidazo[2,1-a]isoquinoline derivatives in moderate to high yields. This reaction provides an alternative method to the known Pd-catalyzed intramolecular oxidative cross-coupling reactions.

The cytoplasmic polyadenylation element binding proteins (CPEBs) associate with specific sequences in mRNA 3' untranslated regions to promote translation. They do so by inducing cytoplasmic polyadenylation, which requires specialized poly(A) polymerases. Aberrant expression of these proteins correlates with certain types of cancer, indicating that cytoplasmic RNA 3' end processing is ...
