Methylation, to give 2-hydroxy-4-methoxymethyl benzoate, followed by reduction to yield 2-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzyl alcohol, and then partial oxidation of the primary alcohol with pyridinium chlorochromate
Fleisher JH, Harris LW, Murtha EF (1967) Reactivation by pyridinium aldoxime methochloride (PAM) of inhibited cholinesterase activity in dogs after poisoning with pinacolyl methylphosphonofluoridate (soman).
Design: We determined the ratio of pyridinium and dehydrodihydroxylysinonorleucine collagen cross-links in 46 iliac crest bone biopsies from patients with PHPT (14 men, aged 28-68 yr; 32 women, aged 26-74 yr) by Fourier transform infrared imaging.
Results: PHPT patients exhibited significantly lower pyridinium to dehydrodihydroxylysinonorleucine collagen cross-links ratio, compared with normal controls.
As a positive control for the PM, we used N - (3 triethylammoniumpropyl) - 4 - (6 - (4 (diethyla mino) phenyl) hexatrienyl) pyridinium dibromide (FM4-64), which stains the PM of protoplast cells.
AMTSn with 4-amino-pyridinium and bromide, respectively, for the purpose of retaining affinity while reducing reactivity toward Cys residues "in general" (
