A modulation of the phagocytic activity of hemocytes from the common periwinkle Littorina littorea by secretory-excretory products (SEP) released by trematode rediae during axenic in vitro cultivation was studied. The SEP released by the parasites Himasthla elongata (Echinostomatidae) and Cryptocotyle lingua (Heterophyidae) were found to inhibit the(More)
A possibility is studied of the transdermal delivery of insulin by using a mixture of synthetic analogues of phosphoglycerides (SAP), as a potential activator of hormone diffusion, through the skin. Experimentally in vitro, it was proven that the diffusion of insulin through the skin of two types of transdermal therapeutic form (TTF)--matrix-type and(More)
The modulation of mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) activity in haemocytes of the common periwinkle (Littorina littorea) in response to immune challenges by lipopolysaccharide from Echerichia coli (LPS), mannan from baker's yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and secretory-excretory products (SEP) of trematodes Himasthla elongata (Echinostomatidae) or(More)
All haemolymph lectins with uniquely juxtaposed N-terminal domain similar to the immunoglobulin superfamily (IgSF) and C-terminal fibrinogen (FBG) termed FBG-related proteins (FREP) are documented till now only in the pulmonate mollusc Biomphalaria glabrata. Using genomic WGS database we have found two FREP genes from marine opistobranch Aplysia californica(More)
In molluscs haemolymph lectins bearing fibrinogen-like domain (FREP) act as immune pattern-recognition receptors. A full-length cDNAs of MytFREP1 and MytFREP2 cloned from haemocytes of blue mussel Mytilus edulis encoded putative polypeptides of 230 and 241 amino acids. Both polypeptides consist of signal peptide and C-terminal fibrinogen-like domain. Immune(More)
The first mollusc mRNA coding G-protein-coupled transmembrane receptor (GPcapital ES, CyrillicR), homologous to human receptors LUSTR 1 (GPR107) and LUSTR 2 (GPR108), was isolated from haemocytes of common periwinkle Littorina littorea. The analyses showed that the full-length cDNA is 1935 bp long and is predicted to encode a 614 amino acid protein (named(More)
To make further progress in the understanding of digenean immune evasive tactics in their snail host, we compared the haemopoietic parameters and haemocyte functional potencies in the prosobranch Littorina littorea, which were either healthy or infected with echinostome trematode Himasthla elongata. The haemocyte concentration in the circulation of infected(More)
Using labeled lectins, a comparative study of the surface of tegument of Himasthla elongata at different stages of development cycle (daughter rediae, cercariae, and metacercariae) and glycocalyx of plasma membranes of hemocytes of molluscs Littorina littorea and Mytilus edulis that are the first and second intermediate hosts of this trematode species,(More)
Specific humoral immune response has been studied in 8 patients with chronic obstructive bronchitis, in whom the persistence of RSV was detected, and in a group of patients without RSV persistence. Humoral immunity in patients with RSV persistence vs. those with acute and chronic bronchitis without viral persistence was characterized by the following(More)
