    ABSTRACT: The correlation was investigated between the level of cell proliferation and the intensity of claudin-1 expression in oral hyperplasia, squamous intraepithelial neoplasia (SIN) and squamous cell carcinoma. Claudin-1 expression and cell proliferation were assessed using immunohistochemistry in different epithelial layers of oral mucosa. The inverse correlation was revealed between the level of cell proliferation and the intensity of claudin-1 expression in oral hyperplasia, SIN and squamous cell carcinoma.

    ABSTRACT: Ameloblastoma and ameloblastic fibroma are benign odontogenous tumors of the jaws with local destructive growth, prone to recurrence. They have various typical radiological and histological features. Surgical tactic generally includes partial resection of the affected jaw. Immunohistochemical study of the tumor tissues allows assessing the expression of tumor progression markers and forecasting tumor growth thus providing individual choice of surgical tactics. Our experience in treatment of ameloblastic tumors showed total biopsy with osseous surgical margins resection to be sufficient for normal bone structure remodeling in some patients.

    ABSTRACT: There were presented results of the study directed to disclosure of malignant cell changes criterion in cases of oral mucous membrane leukoplakia with different degrees of neoplastic transformation according to WHO-2005 classification of squamous intraepithelial neoplasia (SIN). With the help of immunohistochemical method proliferation in different layers of oral mucous membrane epithelium was evaluated. It was established that most important for diagnostics was the correspondence of proliferating cells in parabasal and basal epithelium layers. Figure less than 1 was corresponding to normal epithelium and SIN1, between 1 and 2 was corresponding to SIN2, 2 and more was characteristic itoSIN3.

    ABSTRACT: We found a new protein haponin (an HLDF-alike protein) in promyelocyte HL-60 cells that is immunoreactive to polyclonal antibodies against HLDFbeta. Determination of the partial primary structure of the protein allowed us to reveal an immunogenic peptide of haponin and, on the basis of the amino acid sequence of this peptide, the degenerate primers were synthesized, which enabled us to clone the full-size cDNA of haponin. The stable heterologous expression of this cDNA in E. coli cells (Rosetta strain) was obtained. Preparations of natural and recombinant proteins exhibited antigenic cross-reactivity to polyclonal antibodies against this peptide.

    ABSTRACT: Antibodies to the factor HLDF are shown to be specific markers of apoptosis and permit the estimation of the rate of programmed cell death in the course of a normal menstrual cycle and in pathologic endometrial processes. HLDF expression in the epitheliocytic cytoplasm makes it possible to evaluate apoptosis at early stages, before the emergence of the first morphological signs and after apoptotic body formation. The study shows increased apoptotic processes at the end of a normal menstrual cycle and during neoplastic cell transformation. Antibodies to the HLDF factor may be used as a new immunohistochemical marker for the differential diagnosis of benign and malignant endometrial processes.

    ABSTRACT: The neuroprotective effect of Thr-Gly-Glu-Asn-His-Arg hexapeptide (HLDF-6), a biologically active fragment of the differentiation factor of human leukemia cells (HLDF), was demonstrated on models of Alzheimer’s disease in vivo and in vitro. The syndromes of this pathology were induced in male rats by injection of beta-amyloid peptide (25–35) and ibotenic acid into the hippocampus. HLDF-6 prevented loss of long-term memory and decrease in the exploratory behavior of these animals and significantly decreased the number of pyknotic neurons in the CA1 area of the hippocampus. This peptide also exerts a protective effect in vitro on the primary cultures of the rat hippocampal and cerebellar neurons under conditions of the beta-amyloid toxicity. An increase in the dihydrotestosterone (DHT) content was demonstrated in the blood plasma of rats with the syndrome of Alzheimer’s disease and in the medium of the culture of hippocampal neurons in the presence of the Aβ(25–35) peptide. HLDF-6 inhibited this increase in both cases. A probable mechanism of the neuroprotective effect of HLDF-6 was suggested as being connected to its possible effect on both the biosynthesis and the metabolism of sex steroid hormones.

    ABSTRACT: The hexapeptide Thr-Gly-Glu-Asn-His-Arg (HLDF-6), which was first identified as an active fragment of the human leukemia differentiation factor (HLDF) molecule, displays differentiation-inducing, neuroprotective and anti-drug abuse activities. Most of its in vivo effects were revealed only on male animals. We have studied HLDF-6 effects on a variety of organism functions and behavioral reactions, which are known to be dependent on androgen steroid hormones, both on castrated and normal (sham-operated) animals. Male NMRI mice were castrated or sham-operated at the age of 55 days (after puberty). After that, HLDF-6 peptide was injected daily during 3 weeks, followed by behavioral, morphological and biochemical testing. HLDF-6 increased testosterone level (1.5- to 2-fold) both in sham-operated and castrated animals. Sexual activity and pain sensitivity, which are strongly reduced in castrates, were completely or partially recovered by HLDF-6. At the same time, the peptide caused some effects similar to castration in sham-operated animals: aggression and locomotor activity were decreased; oral grooming was prolonged. Morphological studies of accessory sex glands showed that HLDF-6 partially normalizes the morphology and functional activity of seminal vesicles in castrates, but it does not prevent castration-induced apoptosis of prostate epithelial cells. Based on these observations, we can assume that HLDF-6 peptide displays at least two effects on androgen hormones metabolism in males: it stimulates testosterone biosynthesis by both testes and adrenals and simultaneously inhibits its conversion to dihydrotestosterone (DHT), most probably by diminution of 5alpha-reductase isoform 1 mRNA expression.

    ABSTRACT: Previously we identified a six-membered fragment 354TQVEHR359 of the C-terminal part of the PEDF (Pigment Epithelium-Derived Factor) differentiation factor molecule that shares homology with fragment 41TGENHR46 of the HLDF (Human Leukemia Differentiation Factor) differentiation factor molecule, which is responsible for its differentiation activity. HLDF has been isolated from the culture medium of human promyelocytic leukemia cell line HL-60. Hexapeptides HLDF-6 (TGENHR) and PEDF-6 (TQVEHR) corresponding to these HLDF and PEDF molecule fragments, which were previously shown to induce cell differentiation (Kostanyan et al. (2000) Russian Journal of Bioorganic Chemistry, 26, 505-511), also have neuroprotective properties. Both peptides prevent degeneration of Purkinje cells of rat cerebellar vermis upon chemical hypoxia induced by sodium azide in vivo; this effect is also observed on a behavioral level. Peptide HLDF-6 but not PEDF-6 promotes survival of HL-60 cells upon chemical hypoxia. Peptides HLDF-6 and PEDF-6 affect different second messenger biosynthesis systems in HL-60 cells. HLDF-6 diminishes cyclic AMP level in those cells due to adenylate cyclase inhibition, while PEDF-6 inhibits phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C stimulated by aluminum tetrafluoride anions.

    ABSTRACT: The mature differentiation factor HLDF, isolated from cultural medium, comprises 54 aa, whereas the open reading frame of mRNA encodes a 97-aa protein. We presumed that the protein translation begins from the first ATG codon, whose environment mostly meets the requirements for the initiation point. Two more ATG triplets are localized in positions 48–50 and 100–102 (numbering according to the structure of S21), i.e., in the area preceding the cDNA fragment that encodes the N-terminal fragment of the mature protein. The mRNAs of HLDF and S21 ribosomal protein have previously been shown to be highly homologous, and, therefore, their differences appear to be derived from two point deletions in the cDNA of the HLDF-encoding sequence (a G residue in position 112 and a C residue in position 224). As a result, the mature differentiation factor and RPS21 may be the products of translation from different open reading frames, the differentiation factor may be synthesized in the cell as a precursor, and its N-terminal sequence may be identical to that of RPS21. To test this hypothesis, we prepared recombinant RPS21 and the polyclonal antibodies to HLDF, full-size RPS21, and the C-terminal RPS21 peptide. Immunochemical staining by specially produced antibodies of native HL-60 cells and the same cells brought into apoptosis or differentiation confirmed that the precursor of the differentiation factor and the ribosomal S21 protein have a common N-terminal sequence and different cellular localizations. Neither an intron-containing gene nor a pseudogene with the nucleotide sequence corresponding to the HLDF cDNA was detected in the human genome or in the HL-60 cell line genome. On the basis of these facts, we propose a hypothesis of the molecular mechanism of the HLDF mRNA biosynthesis by means of posttranslational modifications of pre-mRNA of RPS21.

    ABSTRACT: An immunohistochemical study was carried out with monoclonal antibodies to estrogen receptors (Ers), Ki-67, BCL-2, P53 and human papillomaviruses (HPV) of normal cervix (7 cases), cervical leukoplakia (5 cases), CIN I (7 cases) and CIN II-III (6 cases). Correlations were also investigated between hyperestrogenemia and molecular changes in the exocervix. About two thirds of patients with leukoplakia and precancerous changes had clinical signs of hyperestrogenemia which led to proliferation of estrogen-sensitive parabasal cells. Due to neoplastic epithelial transformation the number of cells with Ki-67, P53 and HPV positive reactions in the nuclei increased, while Ers and BCL-2 expression decreased. Because active proliferative parabasal cells are needed for HPV replication we consider hyperestrogenemia as a factor stimulating development of neoplastic changes in the uterine cervix.

    ABSTRACT: A structural homology between the endogenous differentiation factor of the HL-60 cell line of promyelocyte leukemia (HLDF) and several DNA/RNA-binding and DNA/RNA-hydrolyzing proteins was revealed, and expression of the hldf gene in prokaryotic systems was studied. On the basis of these experiments, the amino acid sequence of an 8-membered fragment of HLDF with potential nuclease activity was identified. The synthetic octapeptide RRWHRLKE was shown to be capable of the cleavage of RNA, linear DNA from phage lambda, and all forms of plasmid DNA. We established that treatment of the HL-60 cell culture with this peptide (10(-6) M) results in an increase in the number of apoptotic cells and suggested that HLDF is involved in processes of apoptosis.

    ABSTRACT: In newborn rats passively immunised with the brain-specific protein (BSP) S-100, obvious ultrastructural changes occurred in the glial cells, density of desmosomal contacts increased and the density of synaptic contacts in neurophile of the supraoptic nuclei of the hypothalamus decreased. The S-100 proteins seem to fulfil a regulatory function in synaptogenesis in both newborn and adult animals.
