The negative electric charges on the synaptosomes from rat cerebral cortex were studied by means of protamine-ferritin conjugate. The synaptic vesicles in some synaptosomes were heavily labelled with the positively charged conjugate. The synaptosomal membranes including presynaptic and postsynaptic membranes were also stained but in a lesser degree. It was(More)
By means of combined lectinological and immunological methods were demonstrated mistletoe lectin I binding sites on rat cerebral cortex synaptosomes. The mistletoe lectin I binds specifically D-galactose. Galactosyl residues were established on the junctional and nonjunctional synaptosomal membrane, on the synaptic vesicles, mitochondria and on myelin(More)
Although the Bradford protein estimation assay has found wide distribution, it has a number of drawbacks, which in some cases have been shown to produce erroneous results upon comparison to other, more precise, methods for protein estimation. It was found that the underestimation of the protein content of membrane-containing fractions cannot be overcome by(More)
The LDH isoenzymes of cell organelles (nuclei, mitochondria, microsomes, cytosol) obtained from neuronal- and glial-enriched fractions were determined by disc polyacrylamide electrophoresis and stained for enzyme activity. The quantitative estimation was made either by elution of isoenzymes or by densitometric measurements. The neuronal fraction was found(More)
During synaptogenesis the plasma membrane of neurons undergoes considerable changes and large portions of it develop to synaptic membranes. This transformation is brought about by biochemical and morphological changes. The aim of the present investigation was to study by morphological methods the in vivo changes of some basic components of the neuronal(More)
The damage and repair of rat brain DNA was studied in vivo after a single carcinogenic dose of ethylnitrosourea. Fragmentation of the brain DNA produced by this carcinogen was demonstrated on alkaline sucrose gradients. By the 24th hrs after treatment with ethylnitrosourea the single-strand damage to DNA was not completely repaired. As the highly(More)
The molar concentrations of the catalytic sites of serum cholinesterase (ChE--EC 3.1.1.8.) and cholinesterases (ChEs-acetylcholinesterase (AChE)--EC 3.1.1.7. and ChE) from brain and perfused liver of male birds, rats, swine and sheep were determined. A positive correlation between the molar concentrations of the catalytic sites of ChEs and the resistance of(More)
Studies were performed in the activities of certain enzymes from oxidoreductase group: cytochrome c-oxidoreductase (EC 1.6.99.3), succinate dehydrogenase succinates: cytochrome c-oxidoreductase (EC 1.3.99.1), cytochrome oxidase (EC 1.9.3.1) and malate dehydrogenase (EC 1.1.1.37) in mitochondria from neuronal and glial-enriched fractions. The mitochondrial(More)
