In order to identify polymorphic sites and to find out their frequencies and the frequency of haplotypes, the complete D-loop of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) from 93 unrelated Czech Caucasians was sequenced. Sequence comparison showed that 85 haplotypes were found and of these 78 were unique, 6 were observed twice and 1 was observed three times. Genetic(More)
Oxygen concentration controls the reaction rate of porphyrin-sensitized photo-oxidation under constant experimental conditions. The rate of bilirubin and ditaurobilirubin auto-oxidation and meso-tetra-(4-sulphonatophenyl) porphine-sensitized photo-oxidation in aqueous solution increases by about 3.5 times in 0.5 MPa of oxygen. Use of hyperbaric oxygenation(More)
The mechanism of carbocyanine dye diS-C3-(5) fluorescence intensity variations with transmembrane potential changes has been studied using time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. Clear evidence is given of the transmembrane-potential-dependent partition of the dye among various sites with different fluorescence lifetimes. It was found that fluorescence(More)
Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of single-stranded (ss) and double-stranded (ds) oligonucleotides anchored via an aliphatic linker to a graphene surface were performed in order to investigate the role of the surface charge density in the structure and orientation of attached DNA. Two types of interactions of DNA with the surface are crucial for the(More)
