Master Degree in Physics (Diploma with Honor), topic: “EPR of gamma-irradiated amino-acids and proteins” (first diploma on biophysics in Ukraine, advisor Prof. Dmytro M. Grodzinsky).
1966-1968: research fellow in Department of Radiation Biology, Institute of Plant Physiology, Ukrainian Academy of Sciences, Kiev, Ukraine. 1967-1968: research fellow in laboratory of physical chemistry of biopolymers, Institute of Chemical Physics of USSR Academy of Sciences, Moscow.
1968 (Dec.) - 1971 (Nov.): pre-doctoral fellow (aspirant), Branch of Institute of Chemical Physics, Chernogolovka.
1971 (November): Ph. D. degree (Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences – Chemical Physics), Institute of Chemical Physics, USSR Academy of Sciences, Moscow. Dissertation: "Studies of the electron-transport biological membranes by the method of the molecular probes", advisor: Prof. Lev A. Blumenfeld, opponents M.V. Volkenstein, A.P. Purmal). The first, in the world, studies of biological membranes with using of stable nitroxyl radicals and EPR (electron paramagnetic resonance) spectroscopy – the spin-probe method. Liquid state of lipid bilayers, thermo-dependent conformational transitions and ATP-dependent conformational transitions in the membrane proteins were first detected in these works.
1972 (January) – Present: work in Institute of Problems of Chemicals Physics (former Branch of Institute of Chemical Physics), Chernogolovka. In Department of Kinetics of Chemical and Biological Processes, headed by academician N. M. Emanuel, Dr. Koltover was engaged in the studies on the problems of free radicals, antioxidants and aging. In collaboration with Ukrainian colleagues (Institute of Gerontology of Academy of Medical Sciences of USSR, Kiev), it had been first manifested that one of the most effective antioxidants, 2,6-di-tert-butyl-4-methylphenol (called ionol or dibunol in Russian literature, butylated hydroxytoluene, BHT, in English- literature), acts on the organism’s endocrine system. Through the hormonal regulation system, this antioxidant prevents generation of anion-radicals of oxygen (“superoxide radicals”) as by-products of mitochondrial respiration. Contrary to the in vitro studies, the so-called antioxidants work in living systems, in vivo, not as the direct inhibitors of free-radical reactions but exert the preventive maintenance against “oxidative stress” via prevention of appearance of the free-radicals or via induction of expression of the antioxidant enzymes.
1988: Sci. D. degree (Doctor of Biological Sciences – Biological Physics). Dissertation topic: "Reliability of electron-transport membranes and the role of oxygen anion-radicals in aging". The systems reliability approach to the problem of aging was put forward. This approach is based on the simple general principles that (i) all biomolecular constructions are designed in keeping with the genetic programs in order to perform the programmed, preset functions; (ii) all of them operate with the limited reliability; (iii) the timely replacement or prophylaxis of unreliable functional elements, i.e. the metabolic turnover, is the main line of assuring the high systems reliability; and (iv) there is a finite number of critical elements which perform the supervisory functions over the preventive maintenance and these “supervisors” also operate with the limited, genetically preset, reliability. On this basis, of the theory of reliability, the universal features of aging, such as the exponential growth of mortality rate with time and the correlation of longevity with the species-specific resting metabolism are naturally explained. The stochastic malfunctions of the mitochondrial electron transport nanoreactors, which produce superoxide radicals, seem to be of first importance. The longevity of human brain could reach 250 years should the antioxidant enzyme defense against the free-radical failures be perfect. Thus, aging occurs as the consequence of the limited, genetically preset, reliability of the biomolecular constructions while the free-radical timer serves as the effective stochastic mechanism of realization of the program of aging. Besides, the systems reliability approach serves as heuristic methodology for development of novel preventive medicine.
In collaboration with Austrian colleagues, in order to elucidate the role of oxygen free radicals and mitochondria in aging, mitochondria isolated from hearts of rats of different age were exposed to metabolic conditions which are developed in cells and tissues during ischemia/reperfusion. It has been documented that even short-term anoxia/ischemia affects the electron transfer through redox-cycling ubisemiquinones. As consequence, the impaired mitochondria, especially the mitochondria isolated from old animals, become active generators of the potentially dangerous superoxide radicals.
In the eighties-nineties, after the atomic catastrophe in Chernobyl (Ukraine, 1986), much attention had been devoted to problems of radiation ecology, in part, the problem of radon. Radon and the radioactive products of its disintegration are the source of the main contribution to the radiation background of residential and industrial buildings. Not less than ten percent of the cases of lung cancer, registered annually in the world, are caused by radon radiation. Therefore, the problem of radon is a focus of multidisciplinary radioecological programs in the United States, Japan, and Europe. Comprehensive studies of the danger of radon have also been started in Russia.
Then, in the nineties, Dr. Koltover as physicist and specialist in the magnetic-resonance spectroscopy headed the research projects on the novel class of chemical compounds, endohedral metallofullerenes. The runoff of the electron spin density from the central paramagnetic metal atom outside the carbon cluster was revealed. The “spin leakage” of the fullerene cage was testified by EPR, ENDOR and NMR methods in cooperation with the scientists in India and USA. Owing this effect, the paramagnetic endometallofullerenes hold much promise as the basic elements for realizing nanometer scale devices, amongst them – molecular magnets, superconductors with low critical temperatures and quantum dots.
Considerable recent attention has been focused on the magnetic isotope effects in living nature. All biomolecular devices are composed from atoms of chemical elements many of which have magnetic and nonmagnetic stable isotopes. The experiments with living cells enriched with different magnesium isotopes, magnetic 25Mg or nonmagnetic 24Mg or 26Mg, had been, for the first time, performed. In experiments with yeast cells S. cerevisiae, in collaboration with Ukrainian colleagues and Petersburg Institute of Nuclear Physics (branch of the SRC “Kurchatov Institute”), it was revealed that the rate constant of the post-radiation recovery of the irradiated cells is twice higher for the cells enriched with magnetic 25Mg when compared to the cells enriched with the nonmagnetic isotope. The magnetic-isotope effects of 25Mg were also detected in experiments with another commonly accepted cell model, bacteria E. coli. Furthermore, in experiments with the Ukrainian colleagues, Palladin Institute of Biochemistry in Kiev, it was revealed that the nuclear spin of magnetic 25Mg improves efficiency of operation of muscle myosin, one of the most important enzymes of cell bioenergetics. Namely, 25Mg essentially accelerates the enzymatic ATP hydrolysis, 2-2.5 times, by comparison to the spin-less 24Mg or 26Mg. The similar magnetic isotope effect, the nuclear spin catalysis, was detected in the experiments with the isotopes of zinc as the cofactor of the enzyme.
As invited scientist (visiting professor), Dr. Koltover worked in USA (National Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory, University of California, February, 1989, June, 2002; Department for Biochemistry and Biophysics, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, November-December, 1990; Department of Chemistry, Northwestern University, Evanston, July, 2001).
