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)
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)
Monophasic action potential (MAP) can be recorded from the heart surface by optical method based on fluorescence measurement. The motion of isolated heart during experiment caused additional noise in recorded signal. The motion artifact can be eliminated by ratiometric fluorescence emission measurements. This study is based on experiments in which optical(More)
Myocardial ischemia is the most common cause of death in the developed countries. The most severe manifestation is sudden death due to electrical instability, terminating in ventricular fibrillation or heart arrest. This study is based on experiments in which electrograms and monophasic action potentials are recorded from isolated guinea pig hearts perfused(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)
Three-dimensional electrogram was used for analysis of ischemia manifestation in isolated hearts. Three parameters based on spherical coordination system were used in this study - amplitude of electrical heart vector, its azimuth and elevation. The parameters were presented as a trend. This approach reflected ischemic changes in a manner which can be easily(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 for recording of monophasic action potentials (MAPs) by optical method in excitable tissues. Their direct effects on the tissue are not completely elucidated. Previously we studied effects of VSD di-4-ANEPPS during staining and washout in Langendorff-perfused guinea pig and rabbit isolated hearts. However, most often(More)
During last decade, the myocardial ischemia was studied in our laboratory in isolated rabbit hearts. The three orthogonal electrograms and optical monophasic action potentials of the left ventricle were continuously recorded according to specific experimental protocol. The original data provided with comments are available in our database and may be useful(More)
