Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection development and mRNA fas transcription levels (CD95) in resting (GO) and proliferating (S-phase) human lung embryo fibroblasts (HLEF-110044 line) were studied. In GO cells accumulation of infectious CMV was high and cell death was very quick, and fas gene expression was inhibited in early period of infection. In cells(More)
The action of amixin and cycloferon on the expression of genes in the systems of interferon (IF) and cell apoptosis (CA) was studied by semi-quantitative RT-PCR in human blood microsamples before and after the administration of the drugs. Individual changes were determined in the transcription activity of genes of IF (alpha, beta, gamma), enzymes 2',5'(More)
The aim of the study was to compare the dynamics ofmitochondrial apoptosis (MA) in cells at different stages of proliferation and with different susceptibility to cytomegalovirus (CMV). It has been found that in quiescent human fibroblasts (HF) CMV regulates MA at the level of bcl-2 gene transcription, exerting both pro- and anti-apoptotic effects.(More)
Great differences were found in the level of 2',5'-oligoadenylate synthetase 40-46 kDa (OAS1) mRNA in relation to the proliferative state of human diploid fibroblasts at the moment of cytomegalovirus (CMV) (the strain AD169) infection. In the phase of synthesis of cellular cycle DNA (S), CMV induced OAS1 mRNA transcription by 10-100 times stronger than then(More)
The Caldanaerobacter subterraneus species includes thermophilic fermentative bacteria able to grow on carbohydrates substrates with acetate and L-alanine as the main products. In this study, comprehensive analysis of three genomes of C. subterraneus subspecies was carried in order to identify genes encoding key metabolic enzymes and to document the genomic(More)
The activity of the interferon-dependent enzymes: 2',5'-oligoadenylate synthetase and protein kinase was determined in blood specimens of volunteers in the clinical trials on reaferon (recombinant alpha 2-interferon) and larifan (replicate RNA of phage f2). It was shown that the preparations increased the activity of 2',5'-oligoadenylate synthetase in the(More)
The innate immune receptors TLR4, TLR7, TLR8, and RIG1 recognized the structures of the influenza viruses in human lymphocytes and were activated by the recombinant avian influenza virus A/Vietnam/1203/04 and its escape-mutant m13(13) during early period of interaction. The stimulated levels are not connected with viral reproduction. Donor cells with the(More)
Protein induction by new antiviral preparations of dsRNAs (larifan, ridostin, rifastin and poly(A).poly(U)) and recombinant beta-interferon in human fibroblasts (M19) was studied. The common gene products: 88, 80, 68, 58, 56, 52, 50 and 26 kD were detected in the spectra of the induced cytoplasmic polypeptides. At the same time the sets of the induced(More)
