HLA-B27 is strongly associated to ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and represents a family of eleven B27 alleles (B*2701-11). Our aim was to analyze the distribution of B27 subtypes by PCR/SSOP and genomic sequencing in a large group of populations (n = 17). 711 B27-positive samples from Caucasoid, Asian, African, Amerindian and Polynesian populations were(More)
In order to understand the forces governing the evolution of the genetic diversity in the HLA-DP molecule, polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based methods were used to characterize genetic variation at the DPA1 and DPB1 loci encoding this heterodimer on 2,807 chromosomes from 15 different populations including individuals of African, Asian, Amerindian, Indian(More)
HLA class I and class II alleles have been studied for the first time in the Turkish-speaking Tuvinian population, which lives in Russia, North of Mongolia and close to the Altai mountains. Comparisons have been done with about 11000 chromosomes from other worldwide populations, and extended haplotypes, genetic distances, neighbor joining dendrograms and(More)
The distribution of allele variants of promotor sites of interleukins 4 (C-590T) and 10 (C-597A) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (G-308A) genes was studied in HIV-infected patients and normal subjects of the Europeoid population in Russia. Some deviations in the distribution of genotypes of the studied polymorphism were revealed in HIV-infected patients(More)
The results of DNA typing of the HLA-DPB1 gene among Tuvinians are described. The allele 0201 was found to be the most frequent (26.66%); then, in order of decreasing frequency, followed the alleles 0401 (26.42%), 0402 (13.99%), 0301 (8.55%), 0501 (7.77%), 0901 (5.16%), and 1301 (2.07%). The frequency of the allele 0501 in Tuvinians was significantly lower(More)
We studied proliferation, migration, and secretion of NO by bone marrow multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells from Wistar rats during conditioning under hypoxic and hyperglycemic conditions and the effect of erythropoietin on these parameters. A stimulating effect of erythropoietin on cell proliferation under normal conditions and activation of cell(More)
We studied the effect 24-h illumination on quantitative and qualitative parameters of the bone marrow cells in Wistar rats. It was shown that desynchronosis reduced the release of nucleated cells from the femoral bone, while melatonin weakened this effect. The number of bone marrow mesenchymal stromal cells was resistant to circadian rhythm disturbances,(More)
We studied the effects of autologous biomedical cell product (bone marrow multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells and their conditioned media) on the parameters of the microcirculatory bed in the broad ligament of the uterus of normal Wistar rats were studied. The parameters of microcirculation and lymph drainage in the broad ligament changed in opposite(More)
AIM To analyze the association of the promoter polymorphism of the genes of the matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) MMP2 (-1306), MMP3 (-1171), and MMP9 (-1562) and two vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) gene regulatory regions (-2578, +936) with the development of myocardial infarction (MI). MATERIALS AND METHODS DNA was analyzed in 251 patients with(More)
