This review considers the data of recent years concerning the contact system initiating the activation of blood plasma proteolytic systems, such as hemocoagulation, fibrinolysis, kininogenesis, and also complement and angiotensinogenesis. The main proteins of the contact system are the factors XII and XI, prekallikrein, and high-molecular-weight kininogen.(More)
It is commonly known that activation of plasma kallikrein-kinin system is of great importance in the pathogenesis of atopic diseases. Plasma kallikrein most likely activates other arginine-esterases in human plasma. Diagnostic and prognostic values of the total arginine-esterase activity and the activity of leukocyte elastase (LE) in plasma of patients with(More)
The main purpose of this paper is to study the possible causes of blood-brain barrier (BBB) damage during the acute condition of schizophrenia (Sch), which makes brain antigens accessible to the immunocompetent cells. The development of autoimmune reactions in this disease has to be preceded by the damage of BBB. We have studied the level of activity of(More)
It is thought that dystrophic changes in the human aging anterior eye are due to lipid peroxidation in both the cortical and nuclear structures of the lens under the conditions of ischemia. These changes are often accompanied by only lens opacification (senile cataract-SC) or by formation of amorphous or fibrillar deposits in anterior eye, disturbances of(More)
A chromatographic method of determination of kallikrein and prekallikrein [i, 3, 4] was developed in order to measure the activity of these components in human blood serum. The principle of the method was based on measurement of BAEE (N-benzoyl-L-arginine ethyl ester) esterase activity of kallikrein after separation of the enzyme and its precursor from(More)
The large number of components of the kallikrein-kinin system (KKS) and multifunctionality of the system as a whole and that of each of its components enable its participation in the processes of adaptation and organism defense, as well as in many other physiological and pathological states, and serve as the main reasons for unfailing interest in this(More)
The effect of a cationic fragment of high molecular mass (HMM) kininogen on kallikrein activity and the autocatalytic process of prekallikrein-to-kallikrein conversion were studied. Prekallikrein and kallikrein were obtained by ion exchange and affinity chromatography; the purification of HMM kininogen was achieved using QAE- and DEAE-Sephadex, and(More)
High prevalence of retinal vein occlusion in young people as well as treatment complexity and inadequate control of hemostatic parameters of blood and lacrimal fluid determine the significance of relevant research in patients with retinal vascular pathology. The data thus obtained may be useful for disease prognosis, severity evaluation and therapy control.(More)
A highly purified human serum kallikrein immobilized on CH-Sepharose 4-B was obtained. KM values for N-benzoyl-L-arginine ethyl ester and N-tosyl-L-arginine methyl ester hydrolysis of this preparation were 1.10 x 10(-3) M and 3.6 x 10(-4) M, respectively; pH optimum of hydrolysis of these esters were found to be 8.2 and 8.5, respectively. The immobilized(More)
