The comparative bioinformatic analysis of psoriasis and Crohn disease pathological processes was carried out using the results of microarray experiments deposited in GEO DataSets database. Several common for both pathologies genes and molecular-genetical processes were found. It is suggested that some transcriptional factors including AP-1 system of… (More)
Psoriasis is an autoimmune multifactorial dermatological disease frequently occured in European population. As for other multifactorial genetic diseases success in psoriasis treatment may be achieved due to determination of molecular genetic mechanisms of pathogenesis triggering and psoriasis candidate genes and proteins searching as targets for drugs.… (More)
Psoriatic and atherosclerotic plaques were examined using the real-time polymerase chain reaction. Expression of the FOSL1 gene proved to substantially increase in both psoriatic lesions of the skin and atherosclerotic lesions of vessels as compared with nonlesion samples.
Psoriasis, a multifactorial disease with genetic predisposition, has been used as an example to study the role of the ethnic background in multifactorial diseases in the Dagestan population. The individual information card (IIC) is proposed as the main tool for correct collection and processing of information. The results of the study demonstrate that the… (More)
The review is dedicated to molecular-and-genetic aspects of psoriasis. The paper contains a general characterization of this skin disease and a range of hypotheses concerning its appearance, clinical manifestations, and maintenance. Its autoimmune nature with the central role played by T-cells is considered to be the basic theory of the appearance of… (More)
Psoriasis was used as a model to analyze the pathogenetic pathways of immune-mediated inflammatory diseases, and the results of bioinformatic, molecular-genetic and proteomic studies are provided. Cell mechanisms, common for the pathogenesis of psoriasis, as well as Crohn's disease, are identified. New approaches for immune-mediated diseases are discussed.
The product of gene NAT2 (N-acetyltransferase 2) is involved in the biotransformation system and participates in detoxication of some arylamine derivatives (in particular 2-aminofluorene, 4-aminobiphenyl and 4-naphthylamine) which are strongly mutagenic and carcinogenic. It also renders toxicological and pharmacological influence on a metabolism of medical… (More)
The N-acetylation polymorphisms of volunteers from the Moscow population analyzed by phenotyping and genotyping have been compared. The ratios between the proportions of fast acetylators (FAs) and slow acetylators (SAs) estimated by phenotyping and genotyping do not differ significantly from each other (47 and 44%, respectively). The absolute acetylation… (More)
The main properties (pH and temperature range, stability, substrate specificity) of the modified cellulase CelE (endo-beta-1,4-glucanase) from Clostridium thermocellum have been analyzed with the goal of its expression in plants. The modified enzyme is similar to plant cellulases. Deletions in the N-terminus of the enzyme do not affect its biochemical… (More)
The bacterial gene of the thermostable endo-beta-1,4-glucanase (cellulase) was shown to retain its activity and substrate specificity when expressed in transgenic tobacco plants. The leader peptide of the carrot extensin was efficient in transferring the bacterial enzyme into the apoplast. The expression of the bacterial cellulase gene leads to changes in… (More)
