OBJECTIVES The health effects of chronic low-dose radiation exposure remains a controversial question. Monitoring after the Chernobyl nuclear accident in Ukraine suggested that chronic low-dose radiation exposure was not linked to cancer mortality among the general population. However, elevated rates of birth defects in contaminated compared to(More)
Data available in literature on neurospecific proteins of cytoskeletal structures--microtubules, microfilaments and intermediate filaments are generalized. Properties of tissue-specific cytoskeletal proteins which are typical of nerve cells are summarized. The structure, physicochemical properties, cell localization, metabolism and function of cytoskeletal(More)
Data on the application of neurospecific proteins S-100, GFAP, D2 glycoprotein and neuron-specific enolase (NSE) in the differential tumor diagnosis are reviewed. S-100 protein and GFAP are found in well differentiated astroglial tumors. S-100 protein can be used as melanoma and Schwannoma specific marker. In malignant CNS tumors there is a decrease of(More)
The content of neurospecific proteins S-100, GFA and D2 was measured in malignant cerebral tumors by electrophoresis with the use of monospecific antisera. Concomitant measurement of proteins S-100 and GFA is a more reliable diagnostic criterion as to the tumor histogenesis than study of each protein alone. D2 protein appeared to be the most stable specific(More)
In response to repetitive stimulation of a dorsal root with relatively short intervals between stimuli (10-17 msee) a decrease in the amplitude of the second antidromic action potential of the series recorded from the divided dorsal root L 7 and peripheral nerves was observed. This decrease may be the result of refractoriness and after-changes in(More)
The polypeptide composition of neurospecific glycoproteins in different areas of the rat brain under experimental neurosis is characterized using SDS-PAG-electrophoresis followed by electroblot and immunofixation on nitrocellulose membranes. The soluble and membrane-bound glycoproteins are purified by Con A-Sepharose column chromatography. Changes in the(More)
The methods of quantitative immunoelectrophoresis and indirect immunofluorescence were used study the content of glial fibrillary acid protein in 10 serially reinoculated rat gliomas induced primarily by ethylnitrosourea (a total of 135 tumors). It was found that the GFAP content reduced with increase of malignancy. However, wide scattering of the GFAP(More)
