Strong interest in copper homeostasis is due to the fact that copper is simultaneously a catalytic co-factor of the vital enzymes, a participant in signaling, and a toxic agent provoking oxidative stress. In mammals, during development copper metabolism is conformed to two types. In embryonic type copper metabolism (ETCM), newborns accumulate copper to high(More)
We have previously shown that (1) an acute deficiency in blood serum holo-ceruloplasmin (Cp) developed in rats that were fed fodder containing silver ions (Ag-fodder) for one month and (2) the deficiency in holo-Cp was compensated by non-hepatic holo-Cp synthesis in rats that were chronically fed Ag-fodder for 6 months (Ag-rats). The purpose of the present(More)
Cisplatin is a widely used antitumor agent; however, tumor resistance and severe side effects limit its use. It is well accepted that cisplatin toxicity can be modulated in vitro in cell cultures by copper salts. In the present work, mice with different blood serum copper status were treated with a single intraperitoneal cisplatin injection at a dose of 5(More)
218 Copper is a trace element belonging to the transii tion group of heavy metals. Copper performs several functions in mammals. Being a catalytic and structural cofactor, copper is a constituent of active centers of essential enzymes [1], a participant of signaling pathh ways [2], a regulator of reprogramming of energy metabolism under hypoxia [3], and an(More)
