The accumulation of lipid peroxidation products reacting with 2-thiobarbituric acid (TBARS) has been observed both in very low density blood lipoprotein (VLDL) and suspensions of liposomes prepared from VLDL phospholipids incubated with hypochlorite. Butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) completely inhibited TBARS formation at a concentration of 100 microM, at(More)
BACKGROUND Fibrinogen has been intensively studied with transmission electron microscopy and x-ray diffraction. But until now, a complete 3D structure of the molecule has not yet been available because the two highly flexible αC regions could not be resolved in fibrinogen crystals. This study was aimed at determining whether the αC regions can be visualized(More)
Genetic polymorphism of Russian population of N. gonorrhoeae was detected and a system for genotyping of its clinical strains was introduced into practice. Comparative analysis of the prevalence of N. gonorrhoeae genotypes in Russia and abroad was carried out. For adaptation of the methods of molecular typing of N. gonorrhoeae strains and its approbation on(More)
The antioxidative effect of various drugs on lipid peroxidation in rat serum in the presence of FeSO4 was studied. The concentration of TBA-active products decreased in the presence of carnosine and anticataract drugs (Japanese Catalin, Chinese Baineiting and Finnish Catachrom-OFTAN). Vita-iodurol (France) and Quinax (USA) were completely inert. One of(More)
Experimental rabbits were fed cholesterol during three months. The amount of cholesterol, lipid peroxidation products, and the ratio of the ESR signal of ceruloplasmin to one of transferrins (Cp/Tf) increased in the serum of experimental rabbits as compared with the control group animals. The animals with the high Cp/Tf ratio had a low cholesterol level and(More)
The mechanism of interaction of hypochlorite and hypobromite formed in myeloperoxidase catalysis with lipids of human blood low-density lipoprotein is described. Both agents react with unsaturated lipids via two mechanisms: molecular (with the formation of mainly chloro-or bromohydrins and lysophospholipids) and free-radical (paralleled by lipid(More)
A new etiopathogenetic concept of psoriasis is proposed, which considers psoriasis as a typical inflammatory process characterized by increased antioxidant activity and overexpression of apoptotic receptors. Under these conditions, hyperstimulation of germinative layer cells proliferation dramatically accelerates kerationcyte passage towards apoptotic(More)
Oxidation of human plasma lipoprotein (LP) was studied in the presence of exogenous hypochlorite anion (OCl-) or OCl- generated in the "myeloperoxidase + H2O2 + Cl-" system. OCl- effectively initiates peroxidation of lipids extracted from LP and those within LP particles, as can be judged from accumulation of secondary (thiobarbituric acid [TBA] reactive)(More)
Experiments on Wistar rats showed that thymic peptides produce a stress-protective effect that manifested in prevention of functional impairment of conditioned active avoidance response and a decrease in generalized motor activity typical of higher nervous activity failure. We concluded that thymic peptides significantly modulate integrative functions of(More)
