Post-Hartree-Fock ab initio quantum chemical calculations were performed for 5-fluorouracil in the gas phase and in a three-water cluster. Full geometry optimizations of the 5-fluorouracil-water complexes were carried out at the MP2/6-31+G(d,p) level of theory. MP4/6-31+G(d,p)//MP2/6-31+G(d,p) and MP4/6-31++G(d,p)//MP2/6-31+G(d,p) single-point calculations(More)
It has long been postulated that rare tautomeric or ionized forms of nucleic acid bases may play a role in mispair formation. Therefore, ab initio quantum chemical investigations on the tautomeric equilibrium in 5-fluorouracil (5FU) and its anions (deprotonated from N1, AN1, and from N3, AN3) and their tautomeric forms in water were performed. The effect of(More)
The design, preparation and characterization of poly(butylcyanoacrylate) nanoparticles as a drug-delivery system for daunorubicin is reported. A range of light scattering [photon correlation spectroscopy (PCS)], spectroscopic [(1)H nuclear magnetic resonance ((1)H NMR), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), chromatographic [gel permeation chromatography (GPC)](More)
The keto-enol (K-E) tautomerization equilibrium, more precisely, the keto-amine/enol-imine equilibrium, has been investigated for a series of substituted salicylideneanilines in view of designing compounds with a contrast of second-order nonlinear optical properties. Substituting the salicylidene ring by an acceptor group or the other ring by a donor(More)
The relative stabilities of the tautomers of 2-aminothiazolidine-4-one and 4-aminothiazolidine-2-one were calculated at the MP2/6-31+G(d,p) level by considering their mono- and trihydrated complexes. Single-point calculations at the MP4/6-31+G(d,p)//MP2/6-31+G(d,p) level of theory were performed to obtain more accurate energies. The values of proton(More)
The plasmids have been constructed permitting expression of hepatitis B viral polymerase and its functional domains, the catalytic and end ones, as hybrid proteins containing 12 alien amino acids in the N-terminal. Immunoblotting with the rabbit antisera to N- and C-terminals of hepatitis B polymerase amino acid sequence has demonstrated that constructed(More)
The results of complex ultrasonic, histological and cytological examination of 148 patients with newgrowths thyroid were analyzed. Grey-scale mode, colored and energy Doppler scanning, three-dimensional reconstruction of vessels were used. A new classification of nodular vascular pattern types based on 3-D reconstruction is proposed. The majority of(More)
The synthesis of two novel compounds, 1-amino-3',4'-dihydro-2H,2'H,5H-spiro[imidazolidine-4,1'-naphthalene]-2,5-dione and 1,3-bis(hydroxymethyl)-3',4'-dihydro-2H,2'H,5H-spiro[imidazolidine-4,1'-naphthalene]-2,5-dione, was reported. The structures of the compounds were verified by (1)H, (13)C NMR and IR spectroscopy and quantum-chemical calculations at DFT(More)
AIM The parent of xGraptoveria, Graptopetalum paraguayense, is used in Chinese folk medicine for alleviating hepatic disorders, detumescence and detoxication, lowering of blood pressure, inhibition of cancer cells, exerting diuretic effects, relieving pain and infections. No data are available regarding its anti-conjunctivitis effect. The aim of this(More)
