The oncogenic potential of hepatitis C virus (HCV) core protein has been demonstrated, but the precise mechanism of cell transformation triggered by HCV core is still unclear. This study shows that constitutive expression of HCV core protein (core) in NIH 3T3 murine fibroblasts triggers malignant transformation. At the preneoplastic stage, clones that(More)
An interdisciplinary study was carried out of the telomere length and polymorphism of genes of the renin-angiotensin (ACE) and serotonin (5HTR2A and 5HTTLPR) systems in a population of old and very old inhabitants of northwestern Russia, as well as on their relationships to data from clinical and geriatric anamneses and psychological characteristics. By the(More)
Measurement of RNA can be used to study and monitor a range of infectious and non-communicable diseases, with profiling of multiple gene expression mRNA transcripts being increasingly applied to cancer stratification and prognosis. An international comparison study (Consultative Committee for Amount of Substance (CCQM)-P103.1) was performed in order to(More)
A surface-labeled lyophilized lymphocyte (sLL) preparation has been developed using human peripheral blood mononuclear cells prelabeled with a fluorescein isothiocyanate conjugated anti-CD4 monoclonal antibody. The sLL preparation is intended to be used as a reference material for CD4+ cell counting including the development of higher order reference(More)
Aging is a process defined by a variety of both external and internal factors. A person’s biological age determines the extent of bodily deterioration and risk of age-related diseases. Various parameters, including average telomere length and level of DNA methylation, are considered indicators of biological age. We proposed to combine these parameters to(More)
