Azaphilone α-Bromoacetates (AzαBs): Fluorescent Linchpin Reagents for the Inter- and Intramolecular Cross-Linkage of Primary Amines to Thiols

Author(s): Jason J. Chruma, Sung-Ju Moon, William E. Sanford Jr..

Abstract:

α-Bromoacetate esters of the azaphilone isochromene-6,8-dione core exhibit a pH-dependent orthogonal reactivity allowing for the one-pot cross-linkage of primary amines to thiols in an inter- or intramolecular fashion to afford fluorescent products. This represents a new potential strategy for bioconjugate chemistry.

Keywords: Azaphilones, bioconjugation, orthogonal reactivity, cross-linkage, fluorescent
