Individual variations in the phospholipid compositions of the organs of marine invertebrates were investigated in the representatives of three phyla: Arthropoda [decapods: Paralithodes camtschaticus (Tilesius, 1815) and Erimacrus isenbeckii (Brandt, 1848)]; Echinodermata [starfishes: Distolasterias nipon (Doderlein, 1902) and Evasterias echinosoma Fisher,(More)
This study examines the crystal-liquid crystal phase transitions of the major phospholipids, phosphatidylcholine (PC) and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), from muscle tissue of marine fish living at temperatures of 0–4.1°C (the Pacific cod Gadus macrocephalus, banded Irish lord Hemilepidotus gilberti, Pacific halibut Hippoglossus hippoglossus, black edged(More)
The development of cryopreservation methods for embryonic cells and larvae of sea animals offers a great potential for marine biotechnology. Larval cells of bivalves and sea urchins were frozen to -196 degrees C using traditional cryoprotectants (Me(2)SO and trehalose) and the cryoprotective mixture developed by us. In addition to Me(2)SO and trehalose,(More)
This study examines the molecular species composition and heat-induced crystalline-liquid crystalline phase transitions of phosphatidylcholine (PC) and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) from the muscle tissues of six species of echinoderms that were collected during the summer: the starfishes Distolasterias nipon and Asterias amurensis, the sea urchin(More)
The phospholipid compositions of organs and tissues were determined in representatives of two phyla of marine invertebrates: Echinodermata [Asteroidea: Aphelasterias japonica (Bell, 1881), Evasterias echinosoma Fisher, 1926, Distolasterias nipon (Doderlein, 1902), Asterias amurensis Lutken, 1871; Echinoidea: Strongylocentrotus intermedius (A. Agassiz,(More)
To study the adjuvant activity and to optimize tubular immunostimulating complexes (TI complexes) with respect to the soluble antigen, an investigation was performed on cucumariosides and their fractions, i.e., individual triterpene glycosides that were obtained from the holothurian Cucumaria japonica, as well as on phospholipids from the sea urchin(More)
Differences in the distribution of individual phospholipids between the inner (IM) and outer membranes (OM) of gram-negative bacteria have been detected in mesophilic Escherichia, Erwinia and Salmonella species but have never been investigated in the psychrotrophic Yersinia genus. Therefore, the influence of an elevated growth temperature and heat shock on(More)
This study examines the fatty radical (FR) composition and heat-induced crystalline to liquidcrystalline phase transitions of phosphatidylcholine (PC) and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) from the gills, hepatopancreas, gonads, and muscle of the tanner crab Chionoecetes bairdi, which was collected in the summer at a near-bottom water temperature of 2.8°C. The(More)
Lysophosphatidyletnolamine (LPE) is one of enigmatic lipids of bacteria. It is generated from major membrane lipid - phosphatidylethanolamine at severe changes of the bacterial growth conditions. Accumulation of this phospholipid in cells of Gram-negative enterobacterium Yersinia pseudotuberculosis results in the enhanced thermostability of OmpF-like porin(More)
