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)
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 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)
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)
A new sea ice motion tracking algorithm that operates with two sequential synthetic aperture radar (SAR) RADARSAT-2 ScanSAR images is presented. The feature tracking approach is based on the combination of the phase-correlation and cross-correlation methods. An algorithm for selecting control points, a matching technique, an approach for filtering out error(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)
