Akentieva N.P., Doctor of Biological Sciences - a well-known scientist in the field of studying the molecular mechanisms of action of dinitrosyl iron complexes (DNICs), researching the therapeutic potential of DNICs for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. The scope of her scientific activity is also the identification and characterization of biomarkers for the early diagnosis of cancer. Design, synthesis and study of RHAMM-targeted peptides for the diagnosis and therapy of cancer. Development of nanoparticles for targeted drug delivery (antitumor and cardiological).
Molecular targets of dinitrosyl iron complexes (DNICs) have been identified for the first time. It has been shown that DNICs are effective inhibitors of myeloperoxidase, matrix metalloproteinase, renin, biomarkers of cardiovascular diseases. The effect of DNICs on metabolic processes in cells (fibroblasts, cardiomyocytes) was studied. It has been shown that DNICs have therapeutic potential for the treatment of cardiac diseases and cardiac complications of cancer patients during chemotherapy.
For the first time, a design and synthesis of RHAMM-target peptides was carried out, and their diagnostic and therapeutic potential for the treatment of oncological diseases (breast cancer, prostate cancer, ovarian cancer) was studied. Nanoparticles have been developed for targeted delivery of anticancer drugs to cancer cells. The results of the study have expanded the understanding of the role of the RHAMM receptor in the development and progression of cancer.
The molecular mechanism of occurrence and development of periodontal disease has been studied. For the first time, adhesive proteins of the P.intermedia 17 bacterium, which is responsible for the development of periodontal disease, have been identified. These results have made a significant contribution to the understanding of the occurrence and development of periodontal disease.
The primary structure and post-translational modifications of the α1 subunit of the GABAA receptor have been studied for the first time. These results have expanded fundamental knowledge about the regulation of receptor activity and modulation of the activity of GABAA receptors in the brain for the treatment of neurological diseases.
For the first time, a colchicine-binding site has been identified in tubulin, a key protein responsible for cell proliferation.
As a result of a joint study with the pharmaceutical company TROPHOS (France, 2003-2005), the drug TRO19622 (4-cholesten-3-one, oxime) was developed, the mechanism of action of TRO19622, a new compound for the treatment of multiple amyotrophic sclerosis, was studied. The results of the study are published in an article that is included in the International Encyclopedia. TRO19622 has been patented and commercialized for the treatment of multiple sclerosis.
It has been shown for the first time that the DRAG enzyme is able to form a complex with membrane proteins in the chromatophores of the bacterium Rhodospirillum rubrum. These results have contributed to the understanding of protein-protein interactions in bacteria.
The mechanism of C-H bond activation in methane and other alkanes has been studied for the first time, chemical models of anaerobic oxidation of hydrocarbons by methane-forming bacteria are presented. These results have created a new understanding that methanogenesis is reversible.
The membrane-bound enzyme methane monooxygenase from Methylococcus capsulatus (strain M) was isolated and purified for the first time. New fundamental knowledge about the physicochemical properties of methane monooxygenase was obtained, two-dimensional crystals of the enzyme were obtained for the first time, the quaternary structure and active center of methane monooxygenase were studied.
The structure, functional groups of the active site, and kinetic characteristics of glutamine synthetase from chloroplasts of pea leaves were studied for the first time. These results have deepened our understanding of the mechanism of action of glutamine synthetase, a key enzyme in ammonium assimilation.
