The aim of this work was to synthesize a set of heterocyclic derivatives of lupane, lup-20(29)-ene, and 18α-oleanane, and to investigate their cytotoxic activities. Some of those heterocycles were previously known in the oleanane (allobetulin) group; however, to our knowledge the syntheses and biological activities of lupane heterocycles have not been(More)
Clustered DNA damage induced by 10, 20 and 30 MeV protons in pBR322 plasmid DNA was investigated. Besides determination of strand breaks, additional lesions were detected using base excision repair enzymes. The plasmid was irradiated in dry form, where indirect radiation effects were almost fully suppressed, and in water solution containing only minimal(More)
In this article, we describe the preparation and cytotoxic properties of a small focused library of lupane and 18α-oleanane triterpenoids that contain a combination of two structural motifs known to enhance the biological activities. First, we introduced two fluorine atoms to position 2 of the skeleton. Second, we synthesized a set of hemiester prodrugs,(More)
In this study, a novel liquid chromatography - tandem mass spectrometry method for the simultaneous determination of bisphenols (BPA, BPS, BPF, BPAF), parabens (methyl-, ethyl-, propyl-, butyl-, benzyl-paraben) and estrogens (estrone, estradiol, estriol) in human plasma is presented. Since all analytes possess the phenolic group, dansyl chloride(More)
The paper deals with implementation details of a method for approximate symbolic analysis of linear circuits based on nontrivial transformations of voltage and current graphs. The method is based on eliminating the low-voltage branches from “high-voltage” loops and the low-current branches from “high-current” cuts. This goes beyond the simple edge deletion(More)
