The efficacy of lacZ gene transfer into the L929 cell line and a local [l4C]-DNA delivery in male NMRI mice (10-12 weeks old), were studied using new pH-sensitive liposomes, containing phosphatidylcholine/glycyrrhizin (PC/GL) or alpha-tocopherol ester of succinic acid (PC/TSA). The reporter gene (pQE-LacZ plasmid) was transferred into L929 cells using(More)
In this paper the method of life span extension of multicellular organisms (human) using the reservation of stem cells followed by autotransplantation has been proposed. As the efficiency of this method results from the information theory of ageing, it is important to verify it experimentally testing the basic concepts of the theory. Taking it into(More)
It has been established that natural glycolipids are implicated in many essential biological processes, entering into highly specific and reversible interactions with macromolecules of proteins and plasma membrane receptors [1]. It was shown that modified liposomes containing synthetic glycolipids may be used for targeted delivery of drugs or other(More)
306 Mammalian embryos were studied using time-lapse cinematography for the first time in 1929 [1]. Rabbit blastocysts were the object of the study. It was found that mature blastocysts can periodically contract and expand. Similar characteristic contractions were found later, by means of time-lapse cinematography, in blastocysts of other mammalian species,(More)
The effect of ortophen on the embryogenesis of laboratory mice of two inbred lines BALB/c and C57B1/6 and of outbred stock NMR was studied. The drug was injected intraperitoneally on days 1-6, 6-16, and 16-18 of pregnancy in a therapeutic dose (1 mg/g) and 10-fold doses. General development of the fetuses was delayed and the condition of the pregnant(More)
The success of protocols of clinical genetic therapy depends on the presence of effective and safe vectors— viral [1–3] or nonviral [3–6]. Since nonviral vectors usually transfer genes much less effectively than viral vectors, the search for new effective nonviral vectors remains a topical problem [3, 4, 6]. The appearance of such vectors may increase the(More)
The method of lifespan extension that is a practical application of the informational theory of aging is proposed. In this theory, the degradation (error accumulation) of the genetic information in cells is considered a main cause of aging. According to it, our method is based on the transplantation of genetically identical (or similar) stem cells with the(More)
In this paper the experimental results of bone marrow transplantation from C57BL/6-Tg(ACTB-EGFP)1Osb/J transgenic mice into C57BL/6 mice subjected to 5-fluorouracil treatment are represented. It has been shown that EGFP+ cells engraftment in bone marrow, spleen and thymus of host mice after 5-Fu treatment significantly increased. More long-term engraftment(More)
Recent findings connected with in vivo use of artificial macromolecular complexes (genosomes) for functional gene transfer and delivery are discussed in the paper. Non-viral methods are the most safe for the purpose of human gene delivery. The cationic liposomes containing cholesterol are the most suitable for this purpose, because they possess high(More)
