It is shown that kinurenine derivatives, harmane (beta-carboline) and tetracycline hydrochloride known as photosensitizers of cataractogenesis in lens produce luminescence of singlet molecular oxygen (1O2) under photoexcitation in air saturated aqueous (D2O) solution. The quantum yields of the 1O2 generation by these substances are determined. The data(More)
The effect of the RNase from Bacillus intermedius on the growth of Escherichia coli was investigated. RNase added to growth medium enhanced the synthesis of DNA, RNA, and protein and stimulated cell division; the degree of stimulation depended on the enzyme concentration. A necessary condition for stimulation was the adsorption of the enzyme on the cell(More)
Synthetic DOPA-melanin and natural screening pigments--sepiomelanin and ommochromes are shown to quench the luminescence of singlet molecular oxygen (1O2) in aqueous (D2O, pD = 7.5-8.1) solutions. The rate constants of 1O2 quenching are found to be equal to (1.2 +/- 0.6) 10(8) M-1 s-1 for monomeric units in DOPA-melanin and to (3 +/- 1) 10(6) M-1 s-1 for(More)
The effective photogeneration of singlet molecular oxygen (1O2) by porphyrins (coproporphyrin I; 2,4-bi (alpha-methoxyethyl) deuteroporphyrin IX and cyclopanten-coproporphyrin I) conjugated with antibodies (mouse monoclonal IgG and IgM and human gamma-globulin) have been observed with the direct luminescence method of 1O2 detection. Absolute quantum yields(More)
Bacillus intermedius RNAase (with specific activity of 1,000,000 units per one mg of protein) at concentration of 1 x 10(-3) mg/ml was shown to increase antagonistic and growth-stimulating properties of Trichoderma harzianum. An application of trichodermin which was treated with an enzyme enhanced cucumber crop capacity by 15-18% in industrial conditions.
The effect of Bacillus intermedius RNAase on vegetative cells and spores of siliceons bacteria Bacillus mucilaginosus was investigated. It is shown that the enzyme stimulates the growth of vegetative cells of B. mucilaginosus at a concentration of 10 mkg/ml and promotes germination of spores at a 1000-fold lesser concentration (0.1 mkg/ml). The spores at(More)
The effect of Bacillus intermedius RNAse on the reproduction of Candida tropicalis and synthesis of the main biopolymers in the yeast cells. It has been found that stimulating action of the enzyme appears at the concentration of 10(-5)-10(-6) mg/ml and does not depend on the physiological state of the sowing culture. The connection between the increase of(More)
Effect of DNAase 1 on DNA synthesis and cell division was studied in microorganisms deficient in some stages of DNA replication initiation. The DNA synthesis induced by exogenous DNAase was found to be a replicative origin since it was registered from the "origin" of chromosomal replication under the conditions of initiation of proteins functioning.(More)
