The rapid social and cultural changes introduced by the collapse of the Soviet Union have resulted in important differences in cardiovascular health for indigenous Siberians. This study investigated diet and lifestyle determinants of plasma lipids in the Yakut, an indigenous Siberian herding population. The study used a cross-sectional design with data on(More)
C-reactive protein (CRP), an acute-phase reactant and marker of inflammatory response, is known to be an important predictor of future cardiovascular mortality, independent of other risk factors. The purpose of this research was to investigate the association between CRP, adiposity, and blood pressure in the Yakut, an indigenous Siberian population(More)
It was found that the fusion (His)6-movement proteins (MPs) of two tobamoviruses (TMV UI and a crucifer-infecting tobamovirus, crTMV) were efficient nonspecific translational repressors. The in vitro translation of viral RNAs was blocked by incomplete 30K MP-RNA complexes formed at the MP:RNA molar ratios of 100-150:1. Similar results were obtained with the(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of economic and cultural change on immune function and psychosocial stress in an indigenous Siberian population. We examined Epstein-Barr virus antibodies (EBV), an indirect biomarker of cell-mediated immune function, in venous whole blood samples collected from 143 Yakut (Sakha) herders (45 men and 98(More)
The movement proteins of two tobamoviruses (tobacco mosaic virus, TMV, common strain U1 and cruciferous TMV strain) containing amino-terminal hexahistidine affinity tags were overexpressed in Escherichia coli and purified by metal chelate affinity chromatography. Purified recombinant proteins were immobilized to a Ni(2+)-chelate adsorbent and their ability(More)
