The effect of UV-B irradiation at temperatures of 22 and 4 °C on flash induced oxygen yields, photochemical activity, and energy transfer in pea thylakoid membranes in the absence and presence of scavengers of reactive oxygen species (ROS) was studied. Three different scavengers were used: dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), histidine (His), and n-propyl gallate(More)
The present study was designed to investigate whether poly-ion complex hollow vesicles (polymersomes), based on chemically modified chitosan, are appropriate for passive tumour targeting in the context of their application as drug carriers. The experiments were performed on colon cancer-grafted mice. The mice were subjected to anaesthesia and injected(More)
The effect of high temperature (HT) and dehydration on the activity of photosynthetic apparatus and its ability to restore membrane properties, oxygen evolution, and energy distribution upon rehydration were investigated in a resurrection plant, Haberlea rhodopensis. Plants growing under low irradiance in their natural habitat were desiccated to air-dry(More)
