Using previously developed spectro-photonmetrical method (Bioorg. Khim. 2009. V. 35. pp. 629-639), a significant increase of myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity was found in blood plasma of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2) without of cardiovascular complications, as well as with ischemic heart disease (IHD). Plasma MPO concentration measured by an(More)
Effects of ascorbic acid on calcium homeostasis of human laryngeal carcinoma cells were studied. Intracellular concentration of free calcium and intracellular pH were measured by fluorescent analysis. Ascorbic acid in concentrations of 3–10 mM caused pH drop and sharply increased concentrations of free Ca ions in HEp-2 cells. Intracellular concentration of(More)
To evaluate the significance of post-binding events for stable aggregate formation, the aggregation/dissociation of rat thymocytes initiated by two crosslinking plant lectins, namely concanavalin A (Con A) and Solanum tuberosum agglutinin (STA), were comparatively studied. Despite intimate cell contacts in the aggregates only Con A led to establishment of(More)
BACKGROUND The authors hypothesized that the cell redox state might be modified during microbial and viral infections. To detect and evaluate changes in astroglial cell redox state, rat C6 glioma cells after exposure to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) or after herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) inoculation were used. Redox state modification of glioma cells was(More)
Redox state is a widely used term for the description of redox phenomena in biological systems. The regulating mechanisms responsible for maintaining the redox state are not yet fully known. But it was shown that changes in the redox state might lead to a cascade of intracellular events, beneficial or deleterious to the cell. There are several methods for(More)
The dynamic conductivity of bilayer lipid membranes unmodified by ionophores in current ranges of 10(-12)-10(-10) A was studied. On the current voltage characteristics the jumps of dynamic conductivity in the voltage ranges near zero and disruption value were observed. The lifetime of these jumps was 1-5 s. It was shown that these effects were due to(More)
The morphology and structure of erythrocyte cytoskeleton and local mechanical characteristics in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and donors were studied by atomic force microscopy. Poikilocytosis and anisocytosis, spatial reorganization of the cytoskeleton (loosening and condensation of the actin-spectrin network), and modification of local(More)
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are involved in a variety of biological phenomena, such as mutation, carcinogenesis, inflammation, aging, development, and signal transduction. Intracellular generation of ROS might lead to the activation of redox signaling or oxidative stress. Nonetheless, it is difficult to estimate whether ROS-induced intracellular events(More)
Signals recorded from neurons with extracellular planar sensors have a wide range of waveforms and amplitudes. This variety is a result of different physical conditions affecting the ion currents through a cellular membrane. The transmembrane currents are often considered by macroscopic membrane models as essentially a homogeneous process. However, this(More)
Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is an oxidant-producing enzyme that can also bind to cellular surface proteins. We found that band 3 protein and glycophorins A and B were the key MPO-binding targets of human red blood cells (RBCs). The interaction of MPO with RBC proteins was mostly electrostatic in nature because it was inhibited by desialation, exogenic sialic(More)
