Ergoline alkaloids (syn. ergot alkaloids) are constituents of clavicipitaceous fungi (Ascomycota) and of one particular dicotyledonous plant family, the Convolvulaceae. While the biology of fungal ergoline alkaloids is rather well understood, the evolutionary and biosynthetic origin of ergoline alkaloids within the family Convolvulaceae is unknown. To(More)
This study assessed regrowth of micropropagated Rhodiola Kirilowii buds after encapsulation of axillary buds and differentiating callus in calcium alginate hydrogel and low-temperature preservation. This method of micropropagation was applied to obtain enough plant material for studies on chemical compounds of Rhodiola Kirilowii, a plant difficult to obtain(More)
Genomic instability has long been recognized as the main feature of neoplasia and a factor modulating individual cancer susceptibility. There are attempts to find effective assays of both individual DNA repair capacity and genetic instability, and their relation to the cancer risk. Genetic predisposition plays an important role in the etiology and(More)
Patients with different cancers, induced mostly by numerous mutagenic factors, present increased genetic susceptibility to mutagenic agents known as "hidden chromosomal instability". This type of genetic instability can be detected in vitro after treating chromosomes with clastogenic substances, for example by using "bleomycine test". The purpouse of our(More)
