Semax (100 µM) and its Pro-Gly-Pro fragment (20 and 100 µM) delayed the development of calcium dysregulation and reduction of the mitochondrial potential in cultured cerebellar granule cells under conditions of glutamate neurotoxicity. Incubation with these peptides improved neuronal survival by on average 30%. The neuroprotective effect of semax in(More)
Semax is one of the rare analogues of regulatory peptides which underwent all stages from fundamental investigations to practical usage. It has been demonstrated that this peptide is capable to stimulate operative memory and attention, to increase resistance to hypoxia and to improve brain circulation in experimental animals and human beings over prolonged(More)
The present concept of relative instability of regulatory peptides (RPs) in organisms must be amended. The recently characterized family of glyprolines and some other prolyl-glycyl-proline (PGP)-containing oligopeptides show the stability quite comparable with those of major pharmacological preparations. The ability of glyprolines to pass gastro-enteric(More)
Here a new approach of the elucidation of paths of proteolytic biodegradation of physiologically active peptides, based on the use of a peptide with isotopic label at all amino acid residues and the enrichment of HPLC samples with unlabeled peptide fragments in UV-detectable concentration, has been proposed. The method has been applied for the investigation(More)
Semax is a synthetic analog of adrenocorticotropic hormone 4-10 with a pronounced nootropic effect. It was used in the treatment of vascular, toxic allergic, and inflammatory diseases of the optic nerve and partial atrophy of the optic nerve in parallel with basic neurotrophic and antiinflammatory therapy. For evaluating the drug efficiency, the patients(More)
In order to substantiate the feasibility of using the "Semax" neuroprotector in the treatment of optic-nerve diseases its pharmacokinetics in the intranasal administration was studied in experiments with rats; besides, the physical-and-chemical properties of "Semax" were investigated to define the preparation's stability and mobility in the electric field.(More)
The effects of Selank, the active component of which is the heptapeptide Thr-Lys-Pro-Arg-Pro-Gly-Pro, which includes the tetrapeptide tuftsin and three natural levorotatory amino acids, on behavior and brain serotonin and noradrenaline levels were studied in adult rats subjected to antenatal hypoxia on days 14–16 of gestation. Administration of Selank (300(More)
The most interesting direction in search for new antiulcerogenic preparations is designing drugs that have a complex effect, simultaneously affecting several mechanisms of ulcerogenesis. These drugs include, first, short proline-containing peptides, glyprolines (first of all, Pro–Gly–Pro, PGP) [1, 3]. PGP has not only a protective antiulcerogenic effect,(More)
Biologically active peptides evenly labeled with tritium were used for studying the in vitro and in vivo biodegradation of the peptides. Tritium-labeled peptides with a specific radioactivity of 50-150 Ci/mmol were obtained by high temperature solid phase catalytic isotope exchange (HSCIE) with spillover tritium. The distribution of the isotope label among(More)
