We characterized the interactions of meso-tetrakis(4N-(2-hydroxyethyl)pyridinium-4-yl) porphyrin (TEtOHPyP4), meso-tetrakis(4N-allylpyridinium-4-yl) porphyrin (TAlPyP4), and meso-tetrakis(4N-metallylpyridinium-4-yl) porphyrin (TMetAlPyP4) with the poly(rA)poly(rU) and poly(rI)poly(rC) RNA duplexes between 18 and 45 degrees C by employing circular dichroism,(More)
In the present work fluctuations of number of ligands adsorbed on macromolecule are investigated. We have taken into account the adsorption and desorption of ligands under the circumstance of some adsorption centers fluctuations affected by medium fluctuation. The correlation function and spectral density of number of ligands adsorbed on macromolecule are(More)
To reveal protective role of the new Mn(II) complexes with Nicotinyl-l-Tyrosinate and Nicotinyl-l-Tryptophanate Schiff Bases against ionizing radiation. The DNA of the rats liver was isolated on 7, 14, and 30 days after X-ray irradiation. The differences between the DNA of irradiated rats and rats pre-treated with Mn(II) complexes were studied using the(More)
Binding of the antitumor compound cisplatin to DNA locally distorts the double helix. These distortions correlate with a decrease in DNA melting temperature (Tm). However, the influence of cisplatin on DNA stability is more complex because it decreases the DNA charge density. In this way, cisplatin increases the melting temperature and partially compensates(More)
Porphyrins and porphyrin derivatives have an outstanding potential for discovery of novel pharmacological agents due to their ability for numerous chemical modifications and a variety of mechanisms of biological effects. New water-soluble Ag and Zn derivatives of tetrachloride meso-tetra (4-N-oxiethylpyridyl) porphyne were synthesized. Cyto- and(More)
Laser-generated electron beams are distinguished from conventional accelerated particles by ultrashort beam pulses in the femtoseconds to picoseconds duration range, and their application may elucidate primary radiobiological effects. The aim of the present study was to determine the dose-rate effect of laser-generated ultrashort pulses of 4 MeV electron(More)
The new synthesized Cu(II) chelates of amino acids Schiff bases were studied as a potential radioprotectors. Male albino rats of Wistar strain were exposed to X-ray whole-body irradiation at 4.8 Gy. This dose caused 30% mortality of the animals (LD30). The survival of animals exposed to radiation after preliminary administration of 10 mg/kg(More)
Long-range interaction between all the ligands bound to DNA molecule may give rise to adsorption with the character of phase transition of the first kind (D. Y. Lando, V. B. Teif, J. Biomol. Struct & Dynam. 18, 903-911 (2000)). In this case, the binding curve, c(c(o)), is characterized by a sudden change of the relative concentration of bound ligands ((c))(More)
UNLABELLED THE AIM of the present study was the comparative investigation of action of widely applied anticancer preparations: cisplatin (cis-DDP) and bleomycin (BLM) on total DNA and telomeres damage in human blood cells. METHODS The "Comet-FISH technique" -- single cell gel electrophoresis ("comet assay") in combination with fluorescent in situ(More)
