The hydrodynamic properties of the C-reactive protein in solution (pH 6.8) were studied using quasi-elastic light scattering and size-exclusion liquid chromatography. It was shown that the solution containing the C-reactive protein represents a polydisperse system. The values of the translation diffusion coefficient and the apparent molecular weight of the(More)
Here we have shown that β-cytoplasmic actin acts as a tumor suppressor, inhibiting cell growth and invasion in vitro and tumor growth in vivo. In contrast, γ-cytoplasmic actin increases the oncogenic potential via ERK1/2, p34-Arc, WAVE2, cofilin1, PP1 and other regulatory proteins. There is a positive feedback loop between γ-actin expression and ERK1/2(More)
Sixty-five patients with the fourth stage colon cancer were subjected to the combined surgical and immunotherapy. The following conclusions are made: (1) surgical elimination of the bulk of tumor mass is a necessary prerequisite for effective immunotherapy; (2) vaccination with autological tumor cells accompanied with bacille bilié de Calmette-Guérin (BCG)(More)
The process of penetration of a proteolytic enzyme applied to the surface of burn wound into the depth of necrotic tissue was considered. The model approximation describes three factors by a series of mathematical equations: inward-directed enzyme diffusion, counter-flow filtration of interstitial fluid (exudates), and irreversible inactivation of the(More)
The hydrodynamic properties of the C-reactive protein (CRP) at different pH were studied using quasi-elastic light scattering, size-exclusion liquid chromatography, and nonreducing gel electrophoresis. It was shown that a CRP solution at pH 5.0-7.2 presents a polydisperse system the major component of which is the native pentameric CRP. At pH 4.0-4.5, CRP(More)
263 tumors diagnosed as malignant fibrous histiocytomas and undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcomas have been reassessed morphologically, immunohistochemically and ultrastructurally. The diagnosis of pleomorphic fibrosarcoma was made in 19 patients (5%). The tumors occur in the lower and upper extremities and trunk. The patients have a long history of(More)
The molecular mass and sedimentation coefficient of native C-reactive protein in solution were determined by analytical ultracentrifugation in the presence and absence of calcium ions. Pentameric C-reactive protein was shown to be the major macroscopic form of this protein in solution. The removal of calcium ions from solution caused decompaction of the(More)
Infantile myofibroma (myofibromatosis) (IM) is a mesenchymal tumor of soft tissues of the head, extremities and trunk. It is characterized by relapse-free infiltrative growth. It consists of neoplastic myofibroblasts at varying stage of cell differentiation which form multi-structured tumor zones. IM's morphological differentiated diagnosis is established(More)
