Nutritional biomarkers: Current view and future perspectives
There is a poor relationship between nutrient intake and existing nutritional biomarkers due to variety of factors affecting their sensitivity and specificity. To explore the impact of nutrients at molecular level and ...
Stability of the Biosphere and Sustainable Development: a Challenge to Biospherics
The central point of the concept of sustainable development proposed for overcoming unwelcome trends in the development of the environment – “The right to development must be fulfilled so as to equitably meet developmental ...
Quantitative description of vertical organic matter distribution in real soil profiles by means a simple continuous model
Previously we have proposed a continuous model of soil organic matter (SOM) transformation which was based on describing only the most general notions of this process – a gradual increase in SOM stability toward transformation, ...
Inhibition effect of food preservatives on endoproteinases
The present manuscript proposes a novel approach to assess the impact of food additives on human metabolism by analysing their effect on biomarker enzyme activity. Alterations in the activity of pancreatic enzymes, such ...
Variability of fluorescence spectra of coelenteramide-containing proteins as a basis for toxicity monitoring
Nowadays, physicochemical approach to understanding toxic effects remains underdeveloped. A proper development of such mode would be concerned with simplest bioassay systems. Coelenteramide-Containing Fluorescent Proteins ...
Exposure of luminous marine bacteria to low-dose gamma-radiation
The study addresses biological effects of low-dose gamma-radiation. Radioactive 137Cs-containing particles were used as model sources of gamma-radiation. Luminous marine bacterium Photobacterium phosphoreum was used as a ...
