    Intramolecular Povarov Reactions for the Synthesis of Chromenopyridine fused 2-Pyridone Polyheterocycles Binding to α-Synuclein and Amyloid-β fibrils2020In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 85, no 21, p. 14174-14189Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A BF3×OEt2 catalyzed intramolecular Povarov reaction was used to synthesize a library of 15 chromenopyridine fused thiazolino-2-pyridone peptidomimetics. The reaction works with a range of O-alkylated salicylaldehydes and amino functionalized thiazolino-2-pyridones, to generate polyheterocycles with diverse substitution. The synthesized compounds were screened for their ability to bind α-synuclein and amyloid β fibrils in vitro. Analogs substituted with a nitro group bind to mature amyloid fibrils, and the activity moreover depends on the positioning of this functional group.

    Amino acid building blocks for Fmoc solid-phase synthesis of peptides phosphocholinated at serine, threonine, and tyrosine2013In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 78, no 6, p. 2715-2719Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Phosphocholination of eukaryotic host cell proteins has recently been identified as a novel post-translational modification important for bacterial pathogenesis. Here, we describe the first straightforward synthetic strategy for peptides containing phosphocholinated serine, threonine, or tyrosine residues using preformed functional amino acid building blocks, fully compatible with standard Fmoc solid-phase peptide synthesis.

    Synthesis and conformational studies of a β-turn mimetic incorporated in Leu-enkephalin2004In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 69, no 10, p. 3500-3508Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A β-turn mimetic in which the four amino acids of a β-turn have been replaced by a 10-membered ring has been designed, synthesized, and subjected to conformational studies. In the mimetic, the intramolecular COi − HNi+3 hydrogen bond that is often found in β-turns has been replaced by an ethylene bridge. In addition, the amide bond between residues i and i + 1 was exchanged for a methylene ether isoster. Such a β-turn mimetic, based on the first four residues of Leu-enkephalin (Tyr-Gly-Gly-Phe-Leu), was prepared in 15 steps. The synthesis relied on a β-azido alcohol prepared in five steps from Cbz-Tyr(tBu)-OH as a key, i-position building block. tert-Butyl bromoacetate, glycine, and a Phe-Leu dipetide were then used as building blocks for positions i + 1, i + 2, and i + 3, respectively. Conformational studies based on 1H NMR data showed that the β-turn mimetic was flexible, but that it resembled a type-II β-turn at low temperature. This low energy conformer closely resembled the structure determined for crystalline Leu-enkephalin.

    Diverse functionalization of Thiazolo ring-fused 2-Pyridones2007In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 72, no 13, p. 4917-4924Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Thiazolo ring-fused 2-pyridones have proven to be highly interesting scaffolds for the development of biologically active compounds. Many methods are today available to introduce a variety of substituents in the 2-pyridone part of the heterocycle. Herein we disclose how a diverse set of substituents can be introduced in the thiazolo ring, with possibilities to vary also the spatial arrangement of the substituents. A key intermediate is the oxidized framework 9 for which an effective synthesis is described. The thiazolo part of this system can be substituted either via conjugate additions, resulting in trans selectivity, or via microwave-assisted Heck couplings that result in unsaturated aryl-substituted analogues. The scaffold can also be lithiated followed by the addition of various electrophiles, which increases the diversification potential substantially, as exemplified with the introduction of halogens, alkyl, acyl, and amide substituents.

    Synthesis of a C-glycoside analogue of β-D -galactosyl threonine2003In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 68, no 6, p. 2506-2509Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    C-linked analogue of β-d-galactosylthreonine has been prepared from 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-benzyl-d-galactopyranolactone (1) in 14 steps. Three stereogenic centers were created during the synthesis, with the anomeric center of the C-glycoside being generated first by addition of a Grignard reagent to 1 and subsequent reduction of the intermediate hemiacetal with triethylsilane. The two stereogenic centers in the threonine moiety were both established by alkylation of Evans' chiral N-acyloxazolidinone enolates.

    A total synthesis of hydroxylysine in protected form and investigations of the reductive opening of p-methoxybenzylidene acetals2004In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 69, no 25, p. 8694-8701Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A synthesis of (2S,5R)-5-hydoxylysine, based on (R)-malic acid and Williams glycine template as chiral precursors, has been developed. This afforded hydroxylysine, suitably protected for direct use in peptide synthesis, in 32% yield over the 13-step sequence. Regioselective reductive opening of a p-methoxybenzylidene acetal and alkylation of the Williams glycine template were key steps in the synthetic sequence. Surprisingly, the regioselectivity in opening of the p-methoxybenzylidene acetal was reversed as compared to what was expected. It was found that this was due to chelation of the trialkylsilyl choride, used as an electrophile in the reductive opening, to an adjacent azide functionality. It was also discovered that an equivalent amount of trialkylsilyl hydride was formed in the reaction, a finding that led to additional mechanistic insight into reductive openings of p-methoxybenzylidene acetals with sodium cyanoborohydride as reducing agent.

    Synthesis of 4-O-alkylated N-acetylneuraminic acid derivatives2021In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 86, no 13, p. 9145-9154Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The synthesis of 4-O-alkyl analogs of N-acetylneuraminic acid (Neu5Ac) and the scope of the reaction are described. Activated alkyl halides and sulfonates and primary alkyl iodides give products in useful yields. The utility of the methodology is exemplified using a thiophenyl Neu5Ac building block to synthesize a 4-O-alkyl DANA analog. These results expand the toolbox of Neu5Ac chemistry with value in drug discovery and for the design of novel tools to study the biology of Neu5Ac lectins.

    Synthesis of fluorescent ring-fused 2-pyridone peptidomimetics2013In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 78, no 23, p. 12207-12213Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Thiazolino fused 2-pyridones peptidomimetics are of significant biological importance due to their ability to interfere with adhesive fiber formation in uropathogenic Escherichia coli and oligomerization of amyloid fibres. We have developed an efficient synthetic route to fluorescent BODIPY analogues, with structural diversification from a key intermediate enabling introduction of C-2 substituents and late incorporation of the BODIPY moiety. A mild lithium halide mediated hydrolysis enabled preparation of peptidomimetic fluorophores with useful photophysical properties for further chemical biology applications.

    Microwave-assisted synthesis of highly substituted aminomethylated 2-pyridones2004In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 69, no 23, p. 7830-7835Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    By employing microwave-assisted organic synthesis (MAOS) efficient conditions to introduce aminomethylene substituents in highly substituted bicyclic 2-pyridones have been established. Primary amino methylene substituents were introduced via a cyanodehalogenation followed by a borane dimethyl sulfide reduction of the afforded nitrile. In both of these transformations, microwave irradiation proved to be superior to traditional conditions and the primary amines were obtained in good overall yields (55-58% over three steps). To incorporate tertiary aminomethylene substituents in the 2-pyridone framework, a microwave-assisted Mannich reaction using preformed iminium salts proved to be effective. Thus highly substituted 2-pyridones were obtained in 48-93% yields.

    Synthesis of three-dimensional ring fused heterocycles by a selective [4 + 2] cycloaddition between bicyclic thiazolo 2-pyridones and arynes2024In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 89, no 1, p. 731-739Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A selective [4 + 2] cycloaddition reaction of thiazolo-2-pyridones with arynes has been demonstrated. The developed protocol allows rapid access to highly functionalized, structurally complex thiazolo-fused bridged isoquinolones in high yields, which are susceptible to further late-stage functionalization.

    Synthesis and Spectroscopic Properties of Fluorinated Coumarin Lysine Derivatives2018In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 83, no 8, p. 4792-4799Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The site-selective incorporation of fluorescent amino acids into proteins has emerged as a valuable alternative to expressible protein reporters. For successful application, a robust and scalable, yet flexible, route to non-natural amino acids is required. This work describes an improved synthesis of coumarin-conjugated lysine derivatives where fluorinated variants are accessed. These analogues can be utilized at low pH and should find application probing biological processes that operate under acidic conditions.

    We here describe the use of three-component reactions to synthesize tricyclic pyridine ring-fused 2-pyridones. The developed protocols have a wide substrate scope and allow for the installation of diverse chemical functionalities on the tricyclic central fragment. Several of these pyridine-fused rigid polyheterocycles are shown to bind to Aβ and α-synuclein fibrils, which are associated with neurodegenerative diseases.

    Tandem Ring Opening/Intramolecular [2 + 2] Cycloaddition Reaction for the Synthesis of Cyclobutane Fused Thiazolino-2-Pyridones2021In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 86, no 23, p. 16582-16592Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Reaction of thiazoline fused 2-pyridones with alkyl halides in the presence of cesium carbonate opens the thiazoline ring via S-alkylation and generates N-alkenyl functionalized 2-pyridones. In the reaction with propargyl bromide, the thiazoline ring opens and subsequently closes via a [2 + 2] cycloaddition between an in situ generated allene and the α,β-unsaturated methyl ester. This method enabled the synthesis of a variety of cyclobutane fused thiazolino-2-pyridones, of which a few analogues inhibit amyloid β1–40 fibril formation. Furthermore, other analogues were able to bind mature α-synuclein and amyloid β1−40 fibrils. Several thiazoline fused 2-pyridones with biological activity tolerate this transformation, which in addition provides an exocyclic alkene as a potential handle for tuning bioactivity.
