Multidrug resistance (MDR) is a phenomenon in which cells become resistant to cytostatic drugs and other substances with diverse chemical structures and cytotoxicity mechanisms. The most often observed molecular mechanism for MDR includes high levels of P-glycoprotein (P-gp)--an ABCB1 member of the ABC drug transporter family. Overexpression of P-gp in(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Phenotypically, Sw(a+) erythrocytes have been classified as either 700:4,41 or 700:4,-41. Since anti-700.4, in particular, and sometimes anti-700.41 are contained in reagents defining other low-incidence antigens that are members of the Diego blood group system, we undertook the current investigation in an attempt to establish(More)
This paper presents the Generalized Predictive Control (GPC) strategy based on Artificial Neural Network (ANN) plant model. To obtain the step and the free process responses which are needed in the generalized predictive control strategy we iteratively use a multilayer feedforward ANN as a one-step-ahead predictor. A bioprocess was chosen as a realistic(More)
In P-gp-positive cell variants obtained from L1210 cells either by selection with vincristine (L1210/R) or by transfection with the human gene encoding P-gp (L1210/T), we have previously described cross-resistance to tunicamycin (TNM), a protein N-glycosylation inhibitor. Here we studied whether this cross-resistance also underlies P-gp-positive variants of(More)
Even though stress belongs to the most common lifestyle risk factors of cardiovascular diseases, there are only limited data on direct influence of stressors on the heart. The aim of the present study was to explore selected protein signaling pathways in response to repeated immobilization stress in the heart tissue. Effects of simultaneous treatment with(More)
