The role of tyrosine and phosphatidylinositol kinases in oxidized glutathione (GSSG) and its pharmacological analogue, glutoxim, regulation of Na+ transport in Rana temporaria frog skin was investigated by the voltage-clamp technique. It was shown for the first time that the preincubation of the skin with tyrosine kinase inhibitor genistein or with two(More)
The involvement of Arp2/3 complex, which causes actin filament branching, in the effect of drugs glutoxim and molixan was investigated. Using Fura-2AM microfluorimetry it was shown for the first time that Arp2/3 complex inhibitor CK-0944666 almost completely prevents the increase in intracellular Ca2+ concentration, induced by glutoxim or molixan in(More)
Application of docosatrienic acid was shown to dose-dependently decrease the peak K+ current amplitide and accelerate the potassium activation and inactivation kinetics at all membrane potentials. The data obtained suggests a direct effect of docosatrienic acid on the K+ channels in peritoneal macrophages.
Using the voltage-clamp technique, the possible implication of cytoskeleton in the effect of glutoxim, a pharmacological analog of oxidized glutathione (GSSG), on Na+ transport in the skin of frog Rana temporaria was investigated. It was shown for the first time that skin preincubation with nocodazole, a microtubular disrupter; cytochalasin D, actin(More)
Using Fura-2AM microfluorimetry the possible involvement of epoxygenase pathway of arachidonic acid metabolism in the effect of glutoxim and molixan on intracellular Ca2+ concentration in rat peritoneal macrophages was investigated. It was shown for the first time that preincubation of the macrophages with epoxygenase inhibitors, proadifen and econazole,(More)
The Fura-2AM fluorescent Ca2+ probe was used to study the possibility that the Arp2/3 complex and WASP proteins are involved in the effects of glutoxim and molixan on the intracellular Ca2+ concentration in macrophages. It has been demonstrated that preincubation of macrophages with inhibitors of the Arp2/3 complex or WASP proteins (CK-0944666 or(More)
Using the voltage-clamp technique, a possible role of microtubules and vesicular transport in the effect of pharmacological analogue of oxidized glutathione, drug glutoxim, on Na+ transport in the frog Rana temporaria skin was investigated. It was shown for the first time that the disrupter of microtubules nocodazole or inhibitor of vesicular transport(More)
Using Fura-2AM microfluorimetry, it was shown for the first time that neuroleptic chlorpromazine causes intracellular Ca2+ concentration increase in macrophages due to Ca2+ mobilization from intracellular Ca2+ stores and subsequent Ca2+ entry from the external medium. Chlorpromazine-induced Ca2+ entry is inhibited by La3+ and 2-aminoethoxydiphenyl borate(More)
Using Fura-2AM microfluorimetry, we have shown for the first time that sigma-1 receptor antagonist, antipsychotic haloperidol, significantly inhibits glutoxim- and molixan-induced Ca2+-response in peritoneal macrophages. These results indicate possible involvement of sigma-1 receptors in the signal cascade induced by glutoxim or molixan and leading to(More)
Using Fura-2AM microfluorimetry, we have shown for the first time that methyl-β-cyclodextrin, inducing cholesterol extraction from membranes and raft disruption, significantly inhibits glutoxim- and molixan-induced Ca2+-responses in rat peritoneal macrophages. The results suggest that intact rafts are necessary for signaling cascade induced by glutoxim or(More)
