Lipid peroxidation (LPO) of unsaturated fatty acids in bimolecular lipid membranes (BLM), induced by ultraviolet irradiation [l-3] or by chemical agents [4], brings about an increase in conductivity of these membranes. For BLM prepared from egg phosphatidylcholine/cholesterol mixture this effect is accounted for by the rise of proton permeability [3,5]; the(More)
We are using the coupled models in a decision support system, Nest, to evaluate the response of the marine ecosystem to changes in external loads through various management options. The models address all the seven major marine basins and the entire drainage basin of the Baltic Sea. A series of future scenarios have been developed, in close collaboration(More)
There is extensive clinical evidence for the high efficacy of GABA-ergic drugs in prophylactic and abortive treatment of migraine and cluster headache, while the mechanisms of anticephalgic drugs action are not clear, in particular, because of insufficient number of investigations on experimental headache models. In this study, the influence of baclofen(More)
Biological effects of wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluents were investigated in Baltic mussels (Mytilus trossulus) caged for one month 800m and 1100m from the WWTP discharge site and at a reference site 4km away. Significant antioxidant, genotoxic and lysosomal responses were observed close to the point of the WWTP discharge. Passive samplers (POCIS)(More)
The efficacy and safety of the transcatheter patch (TP) correction of a secundum atrial septal defect (ASD) was studied acutely and on short-term follow-up in 20 patients, successfully implanted with the device. TPs are made of polyurethane foam and require temporary balloon catheter immobilization on the atrial septum for 48 hours. Eighteen patients were(More)
The energy expenditure and requirements and dietary intake were studied in basketball players aged 14-16 years during 3 week-training period. The subjects of study were 14 boys and 18 girls as of the members of reserve of Russian Olympic basketball team. The dietary intake was estimated by dietary record of all food consumed within 24 hours last 7 days of(More)
We propose and test a method for the optimisation of marine fairways to minimise the risk to high-value areas, based on statistical analysis of Lagrangian trajectories of current-driven pollution transport. The offshore areas are quantified according to the probability of pollution released in these areas to reach vulnerable regions. The method contains an(More)
The paper addresses the sensitivity of a novel method for quantifying the environmental risks associated with the current-driven transport of adverse impacts released from offshore sources (e.g. ship traffic) with respect to the spatial resolution of the underlying hydrodynamic model. The risk is evaluated as the probability of particles released in(More)
With an increase in content of sugar in a diet from 10% to 50% of the caloric value the rate of synthesis and accumulation of lipids were increased in perinephric adipose tissue of rats exhibiting the maximal values at 30% content of sugar in rations. Under these conditions content of insulin was decreased in blood and half-life of sialic acids was(More)
Chronic, low intensity herbivory by invertebrates, termed background herbivory, has been understudied in tundra, yet its impacts are likely to increase in a warmer Arctic. The magnitude of these changes is however hard to predict as we know little about the drivers of current levels of invertebrate herbivory in tundra. We assessed the intensity of(More)
