To evaluate toxicity of silver nanoparticles synthesized by using the reverse micelle formation method, the effects of nanoparticles on lipid peroxidation and morphological changes of cell membranes in human lymphocytes were studied. It was found that under the influence of nanoparticles a reduction in cell viability and formation of excessive levels of(More)
The protein composition of microtubular structures of bovine retinal rod axoneme and phosphorylation of its proteins were studied. The axoneme was shown to consist of proteins of 25, 43, 51, 112, 145 and 240 kDa molecular mass. It was demonstrated that 32P is mainly incorporated into the 25, 43 and 51 kDa proteins. cGMP was found to enhance 32P.(More)
Binary vectors for Agrobacterium-mediated transformation were constructed to express the genes for antimicrobial peptides (APs) of the cectropin-melittin type under the control of the cauliflower mosaic virus 35S RNA promoter in plants. It was shown with Escherichia coli and Agrobacterium tumefaciens cells that the cassettes could be cloned in pB1121-based(More)
The heavy water (D2O) has been shown to induce the conformational transitions in trypsin, chymotrypsin and pepsin. The transfer of proteins from H2O into D2O results a change in their sensitivity to UV-light. An increase in sensitivity to the irradiation at 248 nm and a decrease in sensitivity to the irradiation at 280 nm were observed. The quantum yield of(More)
The binding of cGMP by structural components of bovine rod outer segments was studied. The discs and plasma membranes were shown to contain two types of the specific binding sites for cGMP which are distinct from cyclic GMP phosphodiesterase. The sites have a "high" and "low" (Kd = 0.1 divided by 0.35 and 1.5 divided by 2.0 X 10(-6) M respectively) affinity(More)
To assess the potential risks of using the artificial nanostructures the structural state of the human lymphocyte membrane and lipid peroxidation under the influence of multi-walled carbon nanotubes with metal impurities was studied. The ability of carbon nanotubes to induce the formation of reactive oxygen species in cells was examined. A dose-dependent(More)
The binding of L-[3H]leucine by the plasma membranes from the catfish Ictalurus nebulosus taste organ was studied. The two types of specific binding centers for amino acid with high (KD = 2,5 X 10(-10) M) and low (KD = 1,04 X 10(-9) M) affinities were found. Concentrations of high and low affinity centers were 11,85 nmol/mg and 26 nmol/mg respectively. The(More)
The influence of guanosine-5'-triphosphate and secondary messengers forming in rod outer segment membranes during light-stimulated hydrolysis of phosphoinositides on the ATP-dependent Ca(2+)-uptake in microsomes of the retinal rod inner segment was studied. The water-soluble cytoplasmic components of the retinal rod outer segment were shown to be capable of(More)
It was shown that selective interactions between helical segments of macromolecules can realize in globular proteins in the segments characterized by the same periodicities of charge distribution i.e. between conformationally conservative oligopeptides. It was found that in the macromolecules of alpha-helical proteins conformationally conservative(More)
