Y.; Yue, Shijun; Jitkova, Yulia; To, Terence; Zahedi, Payam; Zahedi, Payam; Pai, Emil F.; Schimmer, Aaron D.; Lovell, Jonathan F.; Sessler, Jonathan L.; Liu, Fei-Fei (PLOS One, 2014-12-15)
    Uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase (UROD) catalyzes the conversion of uroporphyrinogen to coproporphyrinogen during heme biosynthesis. This enzyme was recently identified as a potential anticancer target; its inhibition leads ...
  • Synthesis of a boronic acid-based oligosaccharide receptor using a porphyrin scaffold 

    Reyes, Ryan Noel (2011-09-01)
    The multi-step synthesis of a boronic acid-based oligosaccharide receptor is described. The proposed molecule was synthesized with the aim of developing a sensor that could be tuned to bind specific oligosaccharides on ...
