It was found that all halides can compete with cyanide for binding with myeloperoxidase. The lower is the pH, the higher is the affinity of halides. The apparent dissociation constants (Kd) of myeloperoxidase-cyanide complex were determined in the presence of F-, Cl-, Br- and I- in the pH range of 4 to 7. In slightly acidic pH (4 - 6) fluoride and chloride(More)
Pantropical plant Catharanthus roseus (L) G. Don is known as a source of valuable bisindole alkaloids: vinblastine (VBL) and vincristine (VCR), oncolytics widely used as sulfates in therapy of malignant diseases. They are biosynthesized in the plant from monoindolic vindoline and catharanthine, both derived from L-tryptophan and loganine units. In the(More)
Phytoalexins are low molecular weight antimicrobial compounds that are synthesized and accumulated in plants after their exposure to pathogenic microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, viruses and protozoans). They are extensively studied now as promising antifungal, potentially anticancer and plant diseases controlling agents. The article pertains to a group of(More)
The exoskeleton triglyceride fraction isolated from the Colorado beetle,Leptinotarsa decemlineata Say, was studied. Analysis of the hydrolysis products and direct capillary column gas chromatography showed that, apart from triglycerides, the fraction contained no diol lipids. The composition of the natural triacylglccerol mixture was assessed by gas(More)
Functional characterization of membrane channels by patch clamp techniques has revealed great diversity of transmitter or Voltage gated channels in native membranes. Concomitantly recombinant DNA techniques revealed a plethora of genes encoding channel subunits. Thus functional diversity within a particular class of channels may be generated by families of(More)
