DNA colonies formed during PCR in a polyacrylamide gel and RNA colonies grown in an agarose gel containing Qβ replicase can be identified using the procedure of transfer of molecular colonies onto a nylon membrane followed by membrane hybridization with fluorescent oligonucleotide probes. The suggested improvements significantly simplify and shorten the(More)
Relative hydrophobicity of a series of enkephalin-like peptides has been studied by partitioning in the aqueous polymeric Ficoll-dextran biphasic system. The activities of the peptides in the guinea pig ileum, mouse vas deferens and rat brain receptor binding assay systems have been examined. The biological activities of the peptides in the two latter(More)
The review briefs the history of the invention of the molecular colony techique, also known as a polony technology; applications of this method to studies of the reactions between single RNA molecules, ultrasensitive diagnosis, gene cloning, and in vitro screening, as well as the concepts of the origin of life that regard molecular colonies as a prototype(More)
This paper reviews chromosomal abnormalities observed in oncological diseases, the history of discovery of chromosomal translocations (a widespread type of chromosomal abnormalities), and statistical data showing a correlation between translocations and emergence of oncological diseases (in particular leukemia). The importance of detection of minimal(More)
High-molecular-mass RNA and DNA have been shown to retain their integrity for three days at room temperature, no less than two weeks at +4°C, and more than a year at −20°C when whole blood samples are stored as lysates containing 4 M guanidine thiocyanate. Storage time at room temperature can be prolonged at least up to 14 days if nucleic acids were(More)
A complete diagnostic procedure was developed that allows single molecules of mRNA AML1-ETO to be detected in samples of whole blood and bone marrow of the leukemia t(8;21)(q22;q22) patients. The procedure includes: a method for preservation of biological samples ensuring the RNA integrity; an improved method for isolation of RNA from the unfractionated(More)
The structure of the alpha-carbon chain was solved by molecular replacement method at 2.7 A resolution. Neurotoxin I (NTX-I) is one of the main protein components purified from the venom of the central asian cobra Naja naja oxiana. NTX-I is known to bind specifically to acetylcholine receptors thus preventing the transmission of the neuroconductivity signal(More)
Crystals of the neurotoxin-I (NTX-I) from the venom of the middle Asian cobra Naja naja oxiana have been grown by vapour diffusion and dialysis methods. The crystals belong to space group P2(1)2(1)2 with dimension of a = 25.19 A, b = 75.59 A, c = 36.09 A and diffract to 1.9 A resolution. The asymmetric unit contains one molecule (Vm = 2.2 A/Da). Using the(More)
