We have determined the X-ray crystal structures of the NADH-dependent alcohol dehydrogenase LlAdhA from Lactococcus lactis and its laboratory-evolved variant LlAdhA(RE1) at 1.9Å and 2.5Å resolution, respectively. LlAdhA(RE1), which contains three amino acid mutations (Y50F, I212T, and L264V), was engineered...

This paper describes the method validation for the simultaneous determination of seven cysteinylated aldehydes, i.e. 2-substituted 1,3-thiazolidines-4-carboxylic acids, using ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (UHPLC-MS). Authentic reference compounds were first synthesized for identification and quantification purposes. Moreover, nuclear magnetic resonance (1H...

Addition of isobutyraldehyde to 1,2-bis(2-hydroxyphenyl)-1,2-diaminoethane (mother diamine) cleanly gives a stable, fused imidazolidine-dihydro-1,3-oxazine ring complex. However, vigorous heating of the fused ring complex gives the diaza-Cope rearrangement product with excellent yield and stereoselectivity. A variety of alkyl aldehydes have been...
