Leishmania turanica n.sp., found infecting the desert rodent Rhombomys opimus in the southern territories of the USSR and the Mongolian People's Republic, is described. This parasite exists sympatrically with L. major and L. gerbilli in R. opimus and is the predominant species. A total of 284 isolates of L. turanica from R. opimus, 3 from naturally infected(More)
A group of 1916 Russian men donors was studied for 15 electrophoretic blood protein systems, coded by 22 protein loci: Transferrin (Tf), Haptoglobin (Hp)--2 loci, Group-specific component (Gc), Hemoglobin (Hb)--2 loci, Lactatdehydrogenase (LDH)--2 loci, Malatdehydrogenase (MDH), Erythrocyte esterase (Est)--4 loci, Albumen (Alb),(More)
Using electrophoresis in polyacrylamide gel, 11 isolates have been detected by 8 enzymes (PGI, PGM, 6-PGD, MDG, G-6-PGD, ME, ALAT, ASAT) from patients with visceral leishmaniasis and dogs in the Turkmen SSR. The isolates were obtained from different areas of the republic varying in landscape and climatic conditions. The isolates were maintained by passages(More)
Sperm was taken from one alive (by electroejaculation) and two dead (from epididymis tissue) wisent males, and was conserved by the method similar to that used to freeze sperm from cattle. Spermatozoon mobility and acrosome conditions underwent no noticeable changes when kept under preservation. Eight cows were fertilized with the sperm which had been kept(More)
17 blood proteins of infants with rough and multiple congenital malformations (CM), prematurely born infants and sick newborns without developmental anomalies were studied electrophoretically in polyacrylamide and starch gels (62422 locus tests). The control included blood samples of healthy newborns from ordinary maternity hospitals (60234 locus tests).(More)
Alpha 1-antitrypsin rare variants' distribution in a group of 196 families with developmental malformations of newborns was investigated. Significantly increased frequencies of rare variants were noted in groups of probands and their mothers, as compared to the control groups. Preferential transmission of rare alleles from mothers to probands is(More)
The data are presented on distribution of subtypes and rare variants of Pi system for Moscow population. Serum samples were obtained from 210 families of healthy newborn (father-mother-newborn) from several Moscow maternity hospitals. Phenotypes of alpha 1-antitrypsin were detected by isoelectric focusing in ultrathin layer polyacrylamide gel with the range(More)
By 8-11 enzymes, using polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, 378 isolates from R. opimus, 3 isolates from M. libycus, 4 isolates from P. andrejevi, 1 isolate from P. papatasi, 1 isolate from S. murgabiensis and 25 isolates from human patients with skin leishmaniasis have been identified. Using starch gel electrophoresis, 17 strains from R. opimus and 3(More)
