The effect of D-glucose and insulin on conducting properties of supported bilayer lipid membranes (s-BLM) modified by anthraquinone-2-sulphonic acid (AQS) at the presence of potassium ferricyanide was studied by means of cyclic voltammetry (CV). Both the oxidation and the reduction current peaks were found to decrease at the presence of glucose in(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of high-frequency electromagnetic field of 900 MHz at 8 W input power on metabolic activity of human breast adenocarcinoma MCF-7 cells. With the aid of the colorimetric MTT assay, it was shown that there is significant change in cell culture survival exposed to docetaxel in field-free conditions in(More)
BACKGROUND Cell viability assays are important tools in oncological research. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of docetaxel, doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide on the metabolic activity of MCF-7 breast cancer cell line. MATERIALS AND METHODS Antiproliferative effect of cytostatics on MCF-7 cells was measured using the standard(More)
The interaction of angiotensin II (ANG II) with membrane was studied by measuring conductance and current-voltage characteristics (IVC) of bilayer lipid membranes (BLM) prepared of a mixture of egg lecithin with cholesterol, and of gramicidin D-modified membranes of the same composition. Addition of physiological concentrations of ANG II (approx. 15(More)
The influence of D-glucose on a lipid solid support system with the aid of impedance spectrocopy as a preliminary attempt for the biosensing of medical relevant molecules was studied. In spite of some shortcomings, s-BLM's proved to be an appropriate model for the study of lipid membrane-D-glucose interactions. The shortcomings were the roughness of the(More)
Kinetics of conductance and current-voltage characteristics (VACH) were studied on the bilayer lipid membranes from egg lecithin and cholesterol modified by gramicidin D and valinomycin. There were found significant changes of ionic channels conductance g, lifetime tau and non-linearity coefficient beta of VACH of modified membranes dependent on cholesterol(More)
