Association of alkali metal cations with phosphatidylcholine liposomal membrane surface

Interactions of alkali metal cations (Li+, Na+, K+, Cs+) with phosphatidylcholine (PC) liposomal membranes were investigated through experimental studies and theoretical considerations. Using a microelectrophoresis technique, charge densities of experimental membrane surfaces were measured as a function of the pH of electrolyte solutions. Equilibria between the PC liposomal ...

Effects of Novel Dinuclear Cisplatinum(II) Complexes on the Electrical Properties of Human Molt-4 Leukemia Cells

The aim of this study was to determine the influence of cisplatin and novel dinuclear platinum(II) complexes on the membrane electrical properties and lipid peroxidation levels of the Molt-4 human leukemia cell line. Changes in cell function may affect the basal electrical surface properties of cell membranes. These changes can be detected using electrokinetic measurements. Surface ...

Characterization of Human Bladder Cell Membrane During Cancer Transformation

Phenomena associated with changes in cell membranes are thought to play an important role in the cancer transformation. We hypothesized that the electrical charge of tumor cells can indirectly represent membrane-based changes that have occurred during cell transformation and may indicate tumor cell status. Here, we describe work showing that phospholipids, proteins content, and ...

Effects of Novel Dinuclear Cisplatinum(II) Complexes on the Electric Properties of Human Breast Cancer Cells

The aim of this study was to determine the influence of cisplatin and novel dinuclear platinum(II) complexes on the electrical properties of the membrane and the level of lipid peroxidation in the human breast cancer cell lines MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7. The basal electrical surface properties of cells are known. Changes in cell function may affect these surface properties, and those ...

Changes in Electric Properties of Human Breast Cancer Cells

Studies of the electrical surface properties of biological cells have provided fundamental knowledge about the cell surface. The change in biological functions of cells may affect the surface properties and can be detected by electrokinetic measurements. The surface density of fibroblasts and breast cancer cells (MDA-MB-231 and MCF-7) as a function of pH was measured by ...

Protective Effect of Blackcurrant on Liver Cell Membrane of Rats Intoxicated with Ethanol

Chronic ethanol intoxication oxidative stress participates in the development of many diseases. Nutrition and the interaction of food nutrients with ethanol metabolism may modulate alcohol toxicity. One such compound is blackcurrant, which also has antioxidant abilities. We investigated the effect of blackcurrant as an antioxidant on the composition and electrical charge of liver ...

Phospholipid Composition and Electric Charge in Healthy and Cancerous Parts of Human Kidneys

Phospholipids are ubiquitous in nature and are essential for the lipid bilayer of cell membranes. Their structural and functional properties are pivotal for the survival of the cell. In this study the phospholipids of healthy and cancerous human renal tissues from the same patients are compared with special reference to the electric charge of the membrane. A simple and highly ...
