The Nucleic acid-Protein Interaction DataBase (http://npidb.belozersky.msu.ru/) contains information derived from structures of DNA-protein and RNA-protein complexes extracted from the Protein Data Bank (3846 complexes in October 2012). It provides a web interface and a set of tools for extracting biologically meaningful characteristics of nucleoprotein(More)
Osteoinductive characteristics of new osteoplastic materials based on demineralized bone matrix of xenogenic origin with high and controlled degree of purification were studied on the model of regeneration of critical-size cranial defects in rats using modern approaches, including histological analysis, evaluation of morphological parameters of the bone(More)
Standard Affymetrix technology evaluates gene expression by measuring the intensity of mRNA hybridization with a panel of the 25-mer oligonucleotide probes, and summarizing the probe signal intensities by a robust average method. However, in many cases, signal intensity of the probe does not correlate with gene expression. This could be due to the(More)
UNLABELLED The database NPIDB (Nucleic Acids-Protein Interaction DataBase) contains information derived from structures of DNA-protein and RNA-protein complexes extracted from PDB (1834 complexes in July 2007). It is organized as a collection of files in PDB format and is equipped with a web-interface and a set of tools for extracting biologically(More)
Prokaryotic restriction-modification (R-M) systems defend the host cell from the invasion of a foreign DNA. They comprise two enzymatic activities: specific DNA cleavage activity and DNA methylation activity preventing cleavage. Typically, these activities are provided by two separate enzymes: a DNA methyltransferase (MTase) and a restriction endonuclease(More)
The conserved hydrophobic core is an important feature of a family of protein domains. We suggest a procedure for finding and the analysis of conserved hydrophobic cores. The procedure is based on using an original program called CluD (http://monkey.belozersky.msu.ru/CluD/cgi-bin/hftri.pl). Conserved hydrophobic cores of several families including(More)
LAGLIDADG family of homing endonucleases are rare-cutting enzymes which recognize long target sequences and are of great interest in genome engineering. Despite advances in homing endonuclease engineering, effective methods of broadening the range of cleaved sequences are still lacking. Here, we present a study of conserved structural features of LAGLIDADG(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is one of the most widespread and troublesome opportunistic pathogens that is capable of colonizing various human tissues and organs and is often resistant to many currently used antibiotics. This resistance is caused by different factors, including the acquisition of specific resistance genes, intrinsic capability to diminish(More)
Test system ELISA-BMP-2 is developed for measuring recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 in human and laboratory animal serum and plasma by sandwich ELISA. The test system has been used for studies of the kinetics of bone morphogenetic protein-2 release from collagen carrier in the presence of plasma proteins.
Water molecules immobilized on a protein or DNA surface are known to play an important role in intramolecular and intermolecular interactions. Comparative analysis of related three-dimensional (3D) structures allows to predict the locations of such water molecules on the protein surface. We have developed and implemented the algorithm WLAKE detecting(More)
