Impact of corvitin on proteolytic enzymes activity in rats with anthracycline cardiopathy
Activity of trypsin-like enzymes (TLA) and matrix metalloproteinases MMP2 and MMP9 in rats with doxorubicin-induced cardiopathy were investigated and effect of quercetin on their activity was estimated. Increased activity of the indicated enzymes in blood of rats treated with doxorubicin was proved. It is revealed that TLA was not restored under the action of corvitin, activity of MMP2 and MMP9 decreased, in addition MMP9 activity was less than normal values. TPA decreased in cardiac muscle, and under the treatment of corvitin it was restored almost to norm. A conclusion about the independent functioning of trypsin-like enzymes and gelatinases A and B in anthracycline cardiopathy was made. Data obtained suggest that one the mechanisms of cardiotherapeutical effect of corvitin is reducing of gelatinase B activity.

Electrographic correlates of aggressiveness as a property of the personality (a review)
In the review, literature data on the neurobiological basis of aggressiveness and aggressive behavior obtained using methods of objective examination (electroencephalography, cardiointervalography, tomography, and others). As markers of high aggressiveness, a relatively low background heart rate and increased autonomic responsiveness with respect to threatening stimuli, an increased power of slow-wave EEG components combined with relatively low integral power of EEG oscillations, a low amplitude of the P300 potential, and also manifestations of structural and functional changes in the frontocortical and limbic brain regions. A few theories on the nature of aggressiveness and aggressive behavior are described. These data are supplemented with own results obtained by the author.
Influence of weak electromagnetic factors on infradian rhythmicity of nociception of land snail
It was shown that weak electromagnetic factors of varying intensity change infradian rhythmicity parameters of nociception of land snail Helix albescens, which was reflected in the restructuring of the power spectrum of variations of indices and amplitude-phase relations in the spectra. The weak long-term electromagnetic shielding of animals leads to a mismatch of rhythms, increase the phase difference between the periods, indicating the development of desynchronosis. Additional exposure to a variable magnetic field 8 Hz induction 50 nT on snails in the shilding chamber, has a synchronizing effect on the parameters of multi-day rhythmicity of nociception, reducing the phase difference between the periods and by making spectrum allocation periods close to its composition, found in intact animals.
Circadian rhythm restoration of some haemopoiesis characteristics and an immunity after radiation exposure
The influence of response type of haemopoiesis characteristics on the duration of postradiotional circadian rhythm blood creation restoration was discovered: hypereactive animals have had more higher degree of pancytopenia in comparison with hyporeactive animals. It was shown that effect of ionizing radiation in sublethal dose (4.0) has different influence on the shifts of haemopoiesis circadian rhythm and depends on exposure time to radiation and animals reactivity: destructive effects of radiation on lymphopoesis among hyporeactive rats exposed to 20:00 have been minimal. Estimation of immunity of rats with the different types of reactivity exposed in different time of 24 hours cycle has shown deep depression of immune system in hypereactive animals exposed at 8:00 in comparison with hyporeactive rats exposed at 20:00. The relationship between radiosensitivity and type of rats response on psychoemotional stress influence haves been discovered.

Analysis of plasma free oligosaccharide charged fraction of practically healthy donors
Plasma free oligosaccharides include both neutral and charged (acidic) glycans. This article is devoted to a study of the free acidic oligosaccharide structures by using a sialidase enzymatic degradation and by comparison with the known structures of transferrin glycans. The main HPLC-peak of plasma free oligosaccharide charged fraction of practically healthy donors contained the two-antennary complex type of N-glycan with two residues of sialic acid. In the fraction with lower molecular weight there were also found free oligosaccharides with sialic acid. In addition, the positions of some HPLC peaks were not changed after the glycan digestion with sialidase, which may indicate that their negative charge is due to the presence of acid residues other than sialic, such as, for example, phosphoric one.

Dynamics and infradian rhythmic regenerator processes for planarians Dugesia tigrina to low-EMF frequency extremes ranges
It is shown that low-intensity electromagnetic fields extreme frequency ranges stimulate the regeneration of planarians and change the rhythm infradian regenerative processes. The degree of stimulation varies. Increase in the index and the speed of recovery is more pronounced in the electromagnetic shielding. While infradian rhythm regenerative processes more changes under the action of electromagnetic radiation of extremely high frequency. In this case, there is the restructuring of the spectra and the amplitude and phase relationships. The differences in the action of the studied factors that may be associated with changes in the properties of water.
