VDAC provides the major permeability pathway through the mitochondrial outer membrane by forming voltage-gated channels with pore radius of 1.2-1.5 nm. We find that VDAC can select among comparably-charged molecules with a much smaller effective radius, 0.4-0.5 nm. The molecules studied were the nucleotides, ATP, UTP, NADH and synthetic anions,(More)
The participation of mitochondria in cellular and neuronal Ca(2+) homeostatic networks is now well accepted. Yet, critical tests of specific mitochondrial pathways in neuronal Ca(2+) responses have been hampered because the identity of mitochondrial proteins that must be integrated within this dynamic system remain uncertain. One putative pathway for Ca(2+)(More)
Groups of adult humans, previously unexposed to rabies and with no history of rabies vaccination, were inoculated with different schedules of phenolized inactivated vaccine and Flury strain chicken-embryo vaccine, with or without one inoculation of hyperimmune serum. Serum specimens of the inoculated individuals were studied for antibody up to the 28th day(More)
The individual-based system of models EFIMOD simulating carbon and nitrogen flows in forest ecosystems has been used for forecasting the response of forest ecosystems to various forest management regimes with climate change. As input data the forest inventory data for the Manturovskii forestry of the Kostroma region were used. It has been shown that(More)
Materials have been generalized that were accumulated in population-ontogenetic studies of plants and leading features of the ontogeny of plants have been noted that determine specific structural features of their populations. The described patterns allowed the authors to develop simulation models of plant population dynamics. The results of simulation are(More)
The effect of forest fires differing in intensity on organic matter dynamics in forest soils has been assessed in different types of forest sites using the EFIMOD system of models. Differences between the patterns of organic matter dynamics according to scenarios of forest ecosystem development under normal conditions and upon forest fires have been(More)
