It is the first time when the substrate specificity is considered as a complex phenomenon, taking into account an influence of substrate structure on the rate of enzymatic hydrolysis and interaction of cholinesterases with reversible and irreversible inhibitors. Kinetic parameters of hydrolysis of 18 esters, including choline, ammonium and indophenol(More)
Conformational and geometrical properties of the hexamethylenebis(trimethylammonium) (CH3)3N+-(CH2)6)-N+(CH3)3 (hexamethonium) and its derivatives with various degree of conformational flexibility of interonion chain having disulfide or two dimethylsilane groups or difluoromethylene chain instead of cholinesterase reversible inhibitors have been determined(More)
The monoamine oxidase (MAO) from the liver of Comandor squid inhabiting at depth of 800 m transformed histamine along with specific substrates (tyramine, serotonin, benzylamine). MAO from the squid nervous ganglia as well as from mouse liver and brain was inactive towards histamine. Under normal atmospheric pressure the activity of the enzyme prepared from(More)
Conformational properties of a series of polymethylenebis (trimethylammonium) derivatives [formula: see text] (n = 4-10), cholinesterase reversible inhibitors, were studied by molecular mechanics method. Conformation-activity relationships between these inhibitors and human erythrocyte acetylcholinesterase, horse plasma butyrylcholinesterase,(More)
Among a large number of reversible inhibitors of cholinesterases, a special position belongs to bisonium compounds possessing high activity and specificity of action [1]. In recent years we have synthesized and characterized bisonium derivatives of nitrogen-containing alkaloids, which exhibited specificity of action with respect to erythrocytic(More)
Authors had received and investigated on experiment milk medical and prophylactic products (milk and kefir) with addition peptide, obtained from nervous tissue of squids. It has been established that addition of gangliin to the milk and kefir causes stimulation cellular and humoral factors of immunity answer at laboratory animals. Medical and prophylactic(More)
Yersinia pseudotuberculosis and Listeria have been shown to be capable of assimilating carbon dioxide from the air and using its carbon for the synthesis of biopolymers of the bacterial cell. These microorganisms, the causative agents of saprozoonotic infections, have also been found to be capable of assimilating molecular nitrogen from the air in small(More)
Conditions for transformation of tissue adenosine-5'-monophosphate (AMP) into inosine-5'-monophosphate (IMP) with the aid of endogenic AMP-aminohydrolase are developed resting on the studied properties of AMP-aminohydrolase (EC 3.5.4.6) from saltwater fish muscles (one of the enzymes participating in the nucleotide metabolism). Sorption of the nucleotide is(More)
