The hepatitis C virus (HCV) belongs to Flaviviridae family and causes hazardous liver diseases leading frequently to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. HCV is able to rapidly acquire drug resistance and for this reason there is currently no effective anti-HCV therapy in spite of appearance of new potential drugs. Mathematical models are relevant to(More)
Transcription activation of the proapoptotic target genes is a means by which the p53 protein implements its function of tumor suppression. Zn(2+) is a known regulator of p53 binding to the target genes. We have previously obtained an evidence that amino acid substitutions in the p53 Zn(2+)-binding pocket can presumably exert an influence on Zn(2+) position(More)
The Raman scattering and pulsed electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) of spin-labeled saturated 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DPPC) and monounsaturated 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (POPC) phospholipid bilayers in a wide temperature range were studied. Raman spectra in the frequency range of CH2 and C-C stretching(More)
The group of antigen 85 proteins of Mycobacterium tuberculosis is responsible for converting trehalose monomycolate to trehalose dimycolate, which contributes to cell wall stability. Here, we have used a serial enrichment approach to identify new potential inhibitors by searching the libraries of compounds using both 2D atom pair descriptors and binary(More)
As an RNA virus, hepatitis C virus (HCV) is able to rapidly acquire drug resistance, and for this reason the design of effective anti-HCV drugs is a real challenge. The HCV subgenomic replicon-containing cells are widely used for experimental studies of the HCV genome replication mechanisms, for drug testing in vitro and in studies of HCV drug resistance.(More)
Sufficient knowledge of molecular and genetic interactions, which comprise the entire basis of the functioning of living systems, is one of the necessary requirements for successfully answering almost any research question in the field of biology and medicine. To date, more than 24 million scientific papers can be found in PubMed, with many of them(More)
Year after year, conditions, quality, and duration of human lives have been improving due to the progress of science, technology, education, and medicine, which however has a downside. Owing to improvement in children's nutrition, developmental acceleration occurs that imbalances a child's system. Because of virtual worlds of the Internet, social experience(More)
Inhibition of the activity of the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) has become the main strategy for treating inflammatory diseases. The orthopoxvirus TNF-binding proteins can bind and efficiently neutralize TNF. To analyze the mechanisms of the interaction between human (hTNF) or mouse (mTNF) TNF and the cowpox virus N-terminal binding domain (TNFBD-CPXV), also(More)
Histones and their posttranslational modifications have key roles in chromatin remodeling and gene transcription. Besides intranuclear functions, histones act as damage-associated molecules when they are released into the extracellular space. Administration of histones to animals leads to systemic inflammatory and toxic responses. Autoantibodies with(More)
