Biologically Active Compounds in Wine Material Production
We studied the quality of wine materials received from the seeds of different sorts of grape such as Magarach Bastardo, Kaberne Sovinion, Saperavi, which had been treated with different concentrations of giberellin (30 and 40 mg/l). The question about influence of exogenous hormone on biochemical structure of juice made of wineberries and on the chemical structure of wine material was discussed.
Possibilities of Using of Litter Invertebrates for Indication of Soil Humidity Gradations in Forest Ecosystems
Using variance analysis, it was demonstrated that the number of dominant taxonomical groups of litter invertebrates, the ground beetles species (Coleoptera, Carahidae), separate life-forms of the ground beetles and the values of species diversity indices do not differ in forest ecosystems with different gradations of soil humidity. The most sensitive indicator of soil humidity gradations in forest ecosystem is the mixophytophagous aspect in the ground beetles' fauna.

The Characteristic of a Protein Spectrum of Blood Serum in Thyroid Diseases
Using the method of disk - electrophoresis in polyacrylamide gel, characters of blood serum proteins spectrum were studied in groups of the patients suffering from autoimmune thyreoiditis, adenoma of thyroid gland, cancer, nodose goiter and diffuse toxic goiter. The differences of each of electroforetical spectrums are shown in a variation of general number of protein fractions, change of quantity of fractions in various ef- zones and ef- mobility of separate protein components.

The Oil Content and Fatty Acid Composition in the Seeds of Maize Starch-Modifying Mutants
The maize high-amylose mutants were notable for having the increased germ part, oil content in the germ and the content of oleic acid glycerides. The effect of amylopectin starches formation was not accompanied by significant changes of seeds lipid complex. It was shown that the oil content and the correlation of oieate and linoleate are encoded by a few independent loci of fourth, fifth and sixth chromosomes and modified by the interactions with the polygenic complexes.

Estimation of Vitamin Supplies in Black Sea Mussels
Efficiency of maintenance of metabolic products of different vitamins in mitochondrions of mussels' hepatopancreas was studied. It was determined that metabolic products of thiamin and nicotinate are less effectively maintained in mitochondrions in comparison with metabolic products of riboflavin, pantotenate, lipoate. It can be connected with the particularity of vitamins metabolism in mussel tissues.

The Influence of Acetilation on the Spatial Structure of Plant Tubulins
For the first time modeling and comparative analysis of acetylated and non-acetylated forms of plant a-tubulin was carried out. It is shown that the conformational changes caused by acetylation have cluster character and are spatially distant from each other. It is demonstrated that value of RMS deviation between acetylated and non-acetylated forms of plant a-tubulin twice exceed a similar parameter for pair "plant a-tubulin - animal a-tubulin". The discovered facts confirm the assumption about non-local character of influence of acetylation on spatial structure of a-tubulin molecule.
Free Aminoacids Level in Rat Gastrointestinal Tract under Conditions of Closed Space Hypoxia
20 min after closed space hypoxia, content of almost all free amino acids (except glutamine) validly increased in the mucous membrane of the stomach of Wistar rats, alanine and asparagine content increased in the mucous membrane of the small intestine. 35-45 min after closed space hypoxia (agonai period), concentrations of leucine, glutamate and asparagine increased in the mucous membrane of the stomach, concentrations of glutamate, glutamine, asparagine, aspartic acid and arginine increased in the mucous membrane of the small intestine. Concentrations of almost all free amino acids (except valine) validly increased in the duodenum.
Aspects of Growth of Biue Gurami under the Different Conditions of Photoperiod in Closed Water Systems
The results of experiment carried out according to original technique are presented. The effect of photoperiod on aggression, coefficient of variation of mass and total body length in blue Trichogaster irichopterus sumatranus is proven. Photoperiod is suggested to be a factor not affecting the early growth of gurami. The relationship between aggression and size structure of fish group is not found.

Change of Organism Response on Hypokinesia in Rats with Various Typological Features under Influence of EMF EHF of Different Localization
The dependence of antistress effect of elecromagnetic fields (EMF) of extremely high frequency (EHF) from localization of the influence was studied. In rats with the middle mobile activity in "open field" test the mostly pronounced antistress effect of EMF EHF influence on occipital region, as well as on the right thigh lateral surface, was observed. In rats with low mobile activity under the EMF EHF influence on occipital region, as well as on the lateral surface of the right and of the left thighs, the antistress effect has been demonstrated. In rats with the high mobile activity in "open field" test the antistress effect was found under the EHF influence on the occipital region and on the left thigh lateral surface.

Cytogenetic Sdudy of Interspecific Hybrids of Sage Grown in Culture of Immature Embryos
Interspecific crossing is a routine method in the breeding of many essential oil crops. This method allows to accumulate important characteristics of different species in the genotype of interspecific hybrid. However, survivability of these hybrids in the first phases of the onthogenesis is unsatisfactory. This problem has been decided in our research on the example of sage breeding using immature embryos culture. Cytogenetic studies revealed combinative inheritance of régénérants, some marker chromosomes of maternal form (S. sclareaL.) and allowed to reconstruct the idiogramms of caryotypes of initial strains and interspecific hybrids.

The Chemical and Haemagglutinating Properties of the Biopolymers of the Non-Pathogenic Corynebacteria Cell Wall
The cell wall characteristics of biopolymers of the archived and new isolated strains of non-pathogenic Corynebacterium species are described. It was shown that biopolymers, extracted from the cells by 1% DS Na solution surface, contain the considerable amount of carbohydrate and protein components with Mm 10,0 - 120,0 kDa and do not display the haemagglutinating properties. The haemagglutinating activity (from 64 up to 2048 units) in the internal ceil wail iayers has been detected in all the studied strains.

Cellular and Humoral Immune Status in Children of Different Age Depending on Toxic Metal Content in Human Body
The immune system of 80 children at age 1-8 and 9-15 years, who live on urbanized territory, was studied. Average of lead, mercury and cadmium content in hair was in normal limits exceeding them in some cases for lead and cadmium. The immune system was the most sensitive for mercury. Mercury and cadmium stimulated cellular immunity of 1 -8 aged children and depressed of humoral and cellular one of 9-15 aged. Pb led to cellular immunity depression in 1-8 aged children.
