promising target for the development of anticancer agents due to its importance in regulating cell-cycle progression, and several
Plk1 inhibitors are currently undergoing clinical investigations/evaluations.

Rearrangement of a Benzofuran to a Benzopyran
Investigation of an apparent 6-endo-dig cyclization reveals an unusual acid-catalyzed rearrangement of the initially formed
benzofuran derivative. The possible mechanism of the novel rearrangement was also discussed. The construction of ring systems by
intramolecular addition of an anionic center to a carbon-carbon pi-bond has attracted considerable attention in recent years.
Various organometallic reagents have been used resulting in the formation of cycloalkenyl containing products.

The germination and early growth of Ethiopian indigenous plant seeds in the simulated microgravity environment
Menberu Mengesha, Tolu Biressa, Deresse Tekestebirhan
In this article, the overall growth rate of roots in simulated microgravity condition was studied. The length of roots of a seedling
under normal gravity condition was compared with simulated microgravity condition. Moreover, the curvature angle of roots of a
horizontally turned and clinorotated seedlings were analyzed using image analysis software.
