The contents of bioactive sphingolipids (sphingomyelin, ceramide, glucosyl- and lactosylceramides, gangliosides) were studied in rat hepatoma 27 and rat liver. The amounts of sphingomyelin, ceramide, and glucosyl- and lactosylceramides were about twofold and that of gangliosides was about 3.5-fold increased in the tumor compared to normal tissue. Since(More)
Contents of sphingenine (sphingosine) and sphinganine were studied in sphingomyelins of transplantable mouse tumors (hepatoma-22, melanoma B16, Lewis lung carcinoma, intestine carcinoma) and rat nephroma RA. The content of sphinganine was increased in sphingomyelins of hepatoma-22 and nephroma RA compared to sphingomyelins of liver and kidneys. Significant(More)
Optimal healthcare supply today requires the extensive usage of information and communication technologies (ICT) to reduce the emerging costs and to ensure high quality standards. With FitPit – The Fitness Cockpit we are investigating concepts, methods and algorithms to implement an information system which will cope with the increasing problems in(More)
Proliferative activity and lipid composition (phospholipids and gangliosides) were studied in rat hepatoma-27 transplanted subcutaneously or intrahepatically (as models for primary and metastasizing tumors). The mitotic index of subcutaneously transplanted hepatoma far exceeded that of the intrahepatically transplanted tumor. The overall amounts of both(More)
Contents of sphingolipids (ceramide, sphingomyelin, gangliosides) and the composition of their sphingoid bases were studied in the transplantable rat nephroma-RA and in rat kidneys. The content of sphingomyelin was about 1.3-fold decreased and the content of ceramide was about 1.4-fold increased in the nephroma compared to normal kidneys, and this(More)
The content of sphingolipids in M3 and B16/F10 melanomas with a high metastatic potential and in Claudman's and B16/F1 melanomas with a low metastatic potential was studied. It was shown that the content of total lipid-bound sialic acids and ganglioside GM3 in melanomas with a high metastatic potential is considerably higher than that in melanomas with a(More)
Dihydroceramide desaturase activity in the transplantable mouse hepatoma-22, rat hepatoma-27, M1 sarcoma, and RS1 rat cholangiocellular carcinoma has been investigated. It was found that the dihydroceramide desaturase activity in mouse hepatoma-22 is lower than that in normal mouse liver. However, the activity of this enzyme in subcutaneously and(More)
The content of sphingenine (sphingosine) and sphinganine was determined in the total pool of sphingomyelin and ceramide in the rat tumors transplanted subcutaneously and intrahepatically. The sphingenine/sphinganine ratio in the subcutaneously transplanted sarcoma M1 and cholangiocellular carcinoma RS1 was lower than that in the sphingolipids of the(More)
The composition of biologically active sphingolipids in hepatoma 22, breast adenocarcinoma, Lewis lung carcinoma, large intestine adenocarcinoma, cervical carcinoma, and melanomas M3 and B16 was compared to elucidate the similarity and differences in sphingolipids of subcutaneously transplantable murine tumors. The sphingolipid composition of the tumors was(More)
