An asymmetric synthesis of nelfinavir is described starting from acrolein and (S)-methyl phenyl sulfoxide. The key features include (a) stereoselective preparation of a beta-protected amino-gamma,delta-unsaturated sulfoxide by the reaction of an alpha-sulfinyl carbanion with an unsaturated t-butyl sulfinylimine, (b) stereoselective...

Endocytosis is critical for many cellular functions. We show that endocytosis of the common gammac cytokine receptor is clathrin independent by using a dominant-negative mutant of Eps15 or RNA interference to knock down clathrin heavy chain. This pathway is synaptojanin...
