The distribution of F-actin, β-tubulin, aldolase, and fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase (FBPase) in ovarioles of four heteropteran species (Ilyocoris cimicoides, Coreus marginatus, Lygus pratensis, and Notostira elongata) was investigated biochemically and immunocytochemically. Aldolase was found to be uniformly distributed in the cytoplasm of trophocytes and(More)
Ovaries of heteropterans consist of telotrophic meroistic ovarioles that are composed of apically located tropharium and basal vitellarium, containing developing oocytes. The tropharium (trophic chamber) houses trophocytes (nurse cells) that are connected with the centrally located trophic core. The organization of the heteropteran tropharia is highly(More)
The sensitivity of the available methods of apoptosis detection in lymphocyte cultures was tested. Cells were preincubated with genotoxic agents: hydrogen peroxide (0.2 mM; 20 min.) and benzo[a]pyrene (40 microM; 90min.), and then cultured for 36h in the presence of a lectin (PHA-M; 1% v/v) and one of the following potentially antimutagenic agents:(More)
A proline-rich polypeptide complex (PRP) with immunoregulatory and procognitive properties showed a beneficial effect in Alzheimer's disease (AD) when administered orally in the form of Colostrinin(R) tablets. The mechanism of action of PRP/Colostrinin in AD has not been yet clarified. It is known that oxidative stress enhances neurodegenerative processes.(More)
Follicular cells in Coreus marginatus are diversified into two main subpopulations of different cell morphology, ultrastructure, distribution of F-actin and ionic communication between oocyte and follicular cells. Cells forming the insert between the operculum and the bottom of the egg envelope and, subsequently, a circle of micropylar processes were(More)
An oocyte nucleus contains different extrachromosomal nuclear domains collectively called nuclear bodies (NBs). In the present work we revealed, using immunogold labeling electron microscopy, some marker components of interchromatin granule clusters (IGCs) and Cajal bodies (CBs) in morphologically heterogeneous oocyte NBs studied in three hemipteran(More)
An antimutagenic activity of fluphenazine, todralazine, anthocyanins and alkylresorcinols was established in a battery of short-term cytogenetic tests. One of the possible mechanisms of their antimutagenic action could be an increase in apoptotic elimination of heavily-damaged cells from a culture. In this paper we provide data on quantitative estimation of(More)
First generation egg clusters of Elasmucha grisea are more closely guarded than second generation clusters. The ovaries of this species are structured to enhance this behavior. The population of E. grisea from S-W Poland breeds in the spring (May-June) and late summer (July-August). The second generation clutches contain fewer eggs and are destroyed 3-4(More)
The rats exposition for 15 weeks to SO2 inhalation resulted in chronic bronchitis. The BALF evaluation revealed an increase in inflammatory cells number: neutrophils, macrophages, lymphocytes. Electron microscope examination demonstrated that macrophages were activated in comparison to healthy rats. Immunoreactive endothelin was found in bronchial specimens(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of SO2 on bronchial mucosa in rats. Our interest was focused on macrophages function and expression of endothelin. 20 animals were used in the study; 5 of them constituted the control group, 15 of them were submitted to long term SO2 irritation. In animals exposed to SO2 the BALF evaluation revealed the(More)
