There is increasing evidence that different phospholipids are involved in regulation of various cell processes and cell-cell interactions. Lysophospholipids (lysophosphatidic acid, lysophosphatidylcholine) and a number of lysosphingolipids play particular roles in these regulations. Their effects are mediated by specific G-protein-coupled receptors.(More)
The effects of grape phytoestrogens on cholesterol accumulation were studied in primary culture of human blood monocytes incubated with blood serum from postmenopausal women obtained before and 2, 4, and 6 h after single intake of plant components of grapes. Phytoestrogens from grape seeds, pressed out grapes, and fermented grape ridges prevent cholesterol(More)
It is shown that cholesterol incorporation into the membranes of Zajdel hepatoma cells, lymphoblast leukemia cells L1210 and into those of ovary tumour causes an increase in the membrane phospholipid bilayer microviscosity measured by pyrene as fluorescent probe. The increase in the membrane lipid microviscosity resulted in a decrease in the activity of(More)
Activity of Na+, K+-ATPase and the molar ratio "cholesterol/phospholipids" were estimated in erythrocyte membranes of patients with ischemic heart disease, in which an impairment of coronary arteries was documented by means of angiography. Distinct inhibition of the enzymatic activity as well as an increase in the ratio "cholesterol/phospholipids" was(More)
The parameters of cholesterol (CS) metabolism in the epidermis, blood plasma lipoproteins, and red cell membranes were assessed in patients with psoriasis. The levels of free and total CS in extracts from the surface of epidermis, in plasma lipoproteins, and in plasma triglycerides were measured, and the molar ratio CS/ phospholipids (CS/PL index) in red(More)
The effects of polyene phosphatidylcholine (PPC) treatment at oral and intravenous administration to rats and rabbits in hypercholesterolemic diet were studied. No aorta damage was observed in either of rat groups. But fatty liver appeared, and it was the greatest in rats, who received cholesterol and PPC. The result may be attributed to adaptive protection(More)
This review considers various functional aspects of cell sphingolipids (sphingomyelin, ceramides) and lysosphingolipids (sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) and sphingosine phosphorylcholine). Good evidence now exists that they are actively involved in numerous cell-signaling processes. The enzymes responsible for formation and interconversion of cell(More)
Changes in the mean firing rates of the preoptic and septal neurons under thermal stimulation of different skin areas were studied in unanesthetized rabbits. The skin temperature of the rabbit back (skin area I) or face (skin area II) was increased to 38-40 degrees C or decreased to 22-26 degrees C. Out of 111 units under study 21 units responded to changes(More)
We monitor our streets to prevent assault and rodents to develop drugs, but not those for whom the drugs are intended. It took over half a century to begin to monitor blood sugar values in patients with insulin-dependent diabetes. Monitoring blood pressure is equally timely and technically feasible for individual home- and website-based personalised care.(More)
The interaction of liposomes containing different amounts of cholesterol with human serum low density lipoproteins was investigated. Efficiency of the interaction depended on the cholesterol content of liposomes and was highest for liposomes with the maximal cholesterol/phospholipid molar ratio. The latter selectively and effectively interacted with low(More)
