Four fragments (F1-F4) of SEA, obtained via papain proteolysis were separated and isolated as individual components by means of the SDS-electrophoresis in polyacrilamide gel. Molecular masses of the pairs F1 + F4 and F2 + F3 are equal to the mass of the intact toxin--a fact that supposes a cleavage of polypeptide chain in two regions of "disulphide loop" in(More)
It is established that the part of the SEA and SEC2 polypeptide chain responsible for the binding of these toxin proteins with the membrane receptor on the surface of rabbit thymocytes and mitogenic effect is localised in the NH2-terminal region of the molecule. The SEC2 splits in two fragments T1 (17 kdalton) and T2 (12.5 kdalton) under limited proteolysis(More)
Using the limited proteolysis method, we established that the protective antigen (PA) molecule consists of four functionally active domains. The shielding domain occupies an area in the linear structure of the molecule PA with NH4-terminal up to Lys166 and plays an important role in the proteolytic activation of PA. The associative domain situated in the(More)
The developmental mechanisms of anthrax immunity were studied. Immunization was found to generally generate specific antibodies and lysozyme. Collectively, all the factors are responsible for suppressing the development of spores in the body. This proves the fact that the immunity is directed not only towards the exotoxin of B. anthracis, but it affects(More)
AB5 toxins are pore-forming protein complexes, which destroy eukaryotic target cells inactivating essential enzyme complexes through protein ADP-ribosylation or glycosylation by enzymatically active A1 subunits. The B-subunit pentamer interacts with the target cell receptor, induces membrane pore formation, and initiates receptor-mediated endocytosis. In(More)
It was shown that spore germination of different Bacillus anthracis strains in macrophage-like cells J774A.1 depended on the genotype of the strains. The virulent B. anthracis strains contain plasmids pXO1 and pX02 responsible for the synthesis of a toxin and a capsule, respectively. The loss of one of the plasmids results in the reduction of strain(More)
Limited proteolysis has established that the protective antigen (PA) molecule consists of four functional-active domains. So, the shielding domain borrows an area in the linear structure of the PA molecule with NH2 of the end up to Lys 166 and plays a conducting role in the proteolytic activation of PA. The associative domain, engaging in the area Arg(More)
The purpose of this paper is to develop of a single mechanism of the adaptive routing of different types of traffic based on the current quality of service requirements. Software-defined networking is a technology of the future. The current development trend of communication systems constantly confirms this fact. However, to date, the use of this technology(More)
The pesticinogenicity 9.5 kb plasmid from Yersinia pestis strain EV76 has been marked by the kanamycin phosphotransferase gene inserted into PstI site and designated pP3. The obtained plasmid pP3 determines the synthesis of 45 kd pesticin, alpha and beta-forms of fibrinolysin coagulase (37 and 35 kd) and the 29, 19 and 13 kd proteins in Escherichia coli(More)
The immunological and genetic properties of Francisella tularensis vaccine strain are discussion with regard to its use to produce recombinant vaccines. This bacterium-based vector is supposed to be an excellent object for investigating the role of protective antigens in the development of immunity against intracellular bacteria.
