Specific interactions between transmembrane α-helices, to a large extent, determine the biological function of integral membrane proteins upon normal development and in pathological states of an organism. Various membrane-like media, partially those mimicking the conditions of multicomponent biological membranes, are used to study the structural and(More)
The fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3) is a protein belonging to the family of receptor tyrosine kinases. FGFR3 plays an important role in human skeletal development. Mutations in this protein, including Gly380Arg or Ala391Glu substitutions in the transmembrane (TM) region, can cause different disorders in bone development. The determination of the(More)
Alzheimer's disease affects people all over the world, regardless of nationality, gender or social status. An adequate study of the disease requires essential understanding of the molecular fundamentals of the pathogenesis. The amyloid β-peptide, which forms amyloid plaques in the brain of people with Alzheimer's disease, is the product of sequential(More)
We are writing in response to an editorial published in Nature Structural Biology1, which highlighted events at an American Crystallographic Association meeting. In particular, the editorial highlighted a presentation by William Duax of two “new” intertwined double-stranded (DS) gramicidin A structures, one crystallized from a CsCl saturated methanol(More)
G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) constitute one of the biggest families of membrane proteins. In spite of the fact that they are highly relevant to pharmacy, they have remained poorly explored. One of the main bottlenecks encountered in structural-functional studies of GPCRs is the difficulty to produce sufficient amounts of the proteins. Cell-free(More)
This review summarizes data dedicated to improving the efficiency of screening of malignant tumors through the use of modern information and telecommunication technologies. It is showed that currently available software solutions in the field of medical imaging is not enough adapted for population screening. So far there is no single standard that defines(More)
This review article analyzes data of literature devoted to the description, interpretation and classification of focal (nodal) changes in the lungs detected by computed tomography of the chest cavity. There are discussed possible criteria for determining the most likely of their character--primary and metastatic tumor processes, inflammation, scarring, and(More)
There are summarized the foreign and domestic references of recent years devoted to methodology and the efficiency of the use of intraluminal high-dose radiation brachytherapy in patients with lesions of the central bronchi and trachea caused by primary and metastatic malignant tumors. It is presented own experience of applying this method in 207 patients.(More)
t he nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAchr) is a li-gand-gated ion channel which is incorporated into the postsynaptic membrane of neurons [1]. nAchr is composed of five homologous subunits, whose transmem-brane domains form an ion pore and the n-terminal domains contain the binding sites for the ligand (Fig.1). One of the most common subtypes of nAchr(More)
