  • Patent number: 10961202
    Abstract: Provided herein are compounds and methods for modulating abnormal repeat expansions of gene sequences. More particularly, provided are inhibitors of RNA and the uses of such inhibitors in regulating nucleotide repeat expansions, e.g., to treat Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 (DM1), Myotonic Dystrophy Type 2 (DM2), Fuchs dystrophy, Huntington Disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or Frontotemporal Dementia.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: November 16, 2018
    Date of Patent: March 30, 2021

  • Publication number: 20090076290
    Abstract: The present invention provides a process of preparing betulin-28-aldehyde from betulin. The process includes contacting betulin with a compound of formula (I), e.g., TEMPO (2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine 1-oxyl) for a period of time effective to provide betulin-28-aldehyde. The present invention also provides a process of preparing betulinic acid. The process includes contacting betulin with a composition that includes: sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl); sodium chlorite (NaClO2), potassium chlorite (KClO2), or a combination thereof; and a compound of formula (I), e.g., TEMPO (2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidine 1-oxyl); for a period of time effective to provide betulinic acid.
