Rapid development of computer technologies leads to the intensive automation of many different processes traditionally performed by human experts. One of the spheres characterized by the introduction of new high intelligence technologies substituting analysis performed by humans is sleep scoring. This refers to the classification task and can be solved -(More)
Changes in the contents of polyamines (PAs) in tobacco leaves (Nicotiana tabacum L. cv. Wisconsin 38) grown under 16 h photoperiod were correlated with arginine and ornithine decarboxylase (EC 4.1.1.19 and EC 4.1.1.17) and diamine oxidase (EC 1.4.3.6) activities. The maximum of free and soluble conjugated forms of PAs occurred 1-2 h after the middle of the(More)
BACKGROUND This study was designed to evaluate the effects of low-frequency electrical stimulation (LFES) on muscle strength and blood flow in patients with advanced chronic heart failure (CHF). METHODS AND RESULTS Patients with CHF (n=15; age 56.5 +/- 5.2 years; New York Heart Association III - IV; ejection fraction 18.7 +/- 3.3%) were examined before(More)
As many processes are regulated by both light and plant hormones, evaluation of diurnal variations of their levels may contribute to the elucidation of the complex network of light and hormone signal transduction pathways. Diurnal variation of cytokinin, auxin, and abscisic acid levels was tested in tobacco leaves (Nicotiana tabacum L. cv. Wisconsin 38)(More)
BACKGROUND The default mode network (DMN) decreases its activity when switching from a resting state to a cognitive task condition, while activity of the network engaged in the given task increases. Visual processing is typically disturbed in Parkinson's disease dementia (PDD). OBJECTIVE Using functional MRI, we studied the DMN effective connectivity(More)
Cytokinins (CKs) are involved in the regulation of plant development including plastid differentiation and function. Partial location of CK biosynthetic pathways in plastids suggests the importance of CKs for chloroplast development. The impact of genetically modified CK metabolism on endogenous CK, indole-3-acetic acid, and abscisic acid contents in leaves(More)
Voltage-sensitive dyes (VSDs) are used to record transient potential changes in various cardiac preparations. In our laboratory, action potentials have been recorded by optical probe using di-4-ANEPPS. In this study, the effects of two different ways of staining were compared in guinea pig and rabbit isolated hearts perfused according to Langendorff:(More)
Hemodialyzed (HD) patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) exhibit lower fitness as a consequence of chronic uremic changes that trigger various structural, metabolic, and functional abnormalities in skeletal muscles. The aim of this randomized study was to compare the effect of rehabilitation (RHB) training on a bicycle ergometer and(More)
Although sigma ligand haloperidol is known to affect repolarization in heart, its effect on potassium currents in cardiomyocytes has not yet been studied. We analyzed the effect of 1 micromol/l haloperidol on transient outward K(+) current (I(to)) in enzymatically isolated rat right ventricular cardiomyocytes using the whole-cell patch-clamp technique at(More)
CA IX is an active transmembrane carbonic anhydrase isoform functionally implicated in cell adhesion and pH control. Human CA IX is strongly induced by hypoxia and frequently associated with various tumors. In this study, we investigated the expression of the rat CA IX in response to chronic hypoxia and to treatment with chemical compounds that disrupt(More)
