Epidemiological studies demonstrated association between head injury (HI) and the subsequent development of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Certain hallmarks of AD, e.g. amyloid-β (Aβ) containing deposits, may be found in patients following traumatic BI (TBI). Recent studies uncover the cellular prion protein, PrP(C), as a receptor for soluble polymeric forms of(More)
The effect of immunization with the synthetic fragments of the α7 subunit of the acetylcholine nicotine receptor on the spatial memory of mice subjected to olfactory bulbectomy, which causes the development of the neurodegenerative disease of Alzheimer’s type, was studied. NMRI mice were immunized with the KLH conjugates of two peptide fragments of the(More)
To investigate conformations of peptide inhibitors of the angiotensin-converting enzyme in the enzyme-inhibitor complex, the synthesis, studies of inhibitory activity, and conformational calculations of analogues of bradykinin-potentiating peptides with N-methylalanine or D-alanine in place of L-proline or L-alanine residues have been carried out. All the(More)
Mycobacteria, especially Mycobacterium tuberculosis, are one of the most dangerous types of microorganisms to cause diseases and mortality. Due to the known distinctive structure of their cell wall, mycobacteria are resistant to majority of antibiotics and common chemical disinfectants, including quaternized low molecular weight and polymer biocides. In(More)
Five synthetic fragments of the N-terminal domain of the α7 subunit of the human nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (α7 nAChR) that correspond to theoretically calculated B epitopes and T helper epitopes of the protein and contain from 16 to 29 amino acid residues were tested for the ability to stimulate the formation of antibodies in mice of three lines(More)
Potentially immunoactive regions of the NS1 nonstructural protein of the tick-borne encephalitis virus that can stimulate the antibody formation in vivo and protect animals from this disease were chosen on the basis of theoretical calculations. Eleven 16-to 27-aa peptides containing the chosen regions were synthesized. The ability of the free peptides(More)
The endogenous protein survivin is present in tumor cells and inhibits apoptosis. The influence of vaccination of mice by survivin fragments on growth of various types of tumors was studied in order to examine the possibility of creation of an antitumor vaccinating agent on its basis. Two peptides corresponding to the 118–144 and (80–88)-(153–165) sequences(More)
