A series of new benzoxazepine derivatives substituted with different alkoxy and aryloxy group were synthesized comprising synthetic steps of Mitsunobu reaction, lithium aluminum hydride (LAH) reduction, followed by debenzylation and finally intramolecular Mitsunobu cyclization. The new benzoxazepines specifically inhibited growth

Previous studies indicate that RNA may be required for proteinase-resistant prion protein (PrP) amplification and for infectious prion formation in vitro, suggesting that RNA molecules may function as cellular cofactors for abnormal PrP (PrPSc) formation and become part of the
