Direct carbon-carbon bond formation via soft enolization: aldol addition of alpha-halogenated thioesters Yost, Julianne M; Alfie, Rachel J; Tarsis, Emily M; Chong, Insun; Coltart, Don M (2011)alpha-Halo thioesters undergo soft enolization and syn-selective direct aldol addition to aldehydes in the presence of MgBr2 center dot OEt2 and i-Pr2NEt to produce alpha-halo-beta-hydroxy thioesters.
Drosophila muller f elements maintain a distinct set of genomic properties over 40 million years of evolution. Leung, Wilson; Shaffer, Christopher D; Reed, Laura K; Smith, Sheryl T; Barshop, William; Dirkes, William; Dothager, Matthew; ... (1014 authors) (G3 (Bethesda, Md.), 2015-03-04)The Muller F element (4.2 Mb, ~80 protein-coding genes) is an unusual autosome of Drosophila melanogaster; it is mostly heterochromatic with a low recombination rate. To investigate how these properties impact the evolution ...
Retrotransposons Are the Major Contributors to the Expansion of the Drosophila ananassae Muller F Element. Leung, Wilson; Shaffer, Christopher D; Chen, Elizabeth J; Quisenberry, Thomas J; Ko, Kevin; Braverman, John M; Giarla, Thomas C; ... (276 authors) (G3 (Bethesda, Md.), 2017-08-07)The discordance between genome size and the complexity of eukaryotes can partly be attributed to differences in repeat density. The Muller F element (∼5.2 Mb) is the smallest chromosome in Drosophila melanogaster, but it ...
