Ethanol Hydrogen bonds Binding site Beta strand Alpha helix 3/10 helix Secondary structure
This study is on the analysis of ethanol binding sites on 3D structures of nonredundant proteins from the Protein Data Bank. The only one amino acid residue that is significantly overrepresented around ethanol molecules is Tyr. There are usually two or more Tyr residues in the same ethanol binding site, while residues of Thr, Asp and Gln are underrepresented around them. Residues of Ala and Pro ar...

unrecorded alcohol; methods of estimation
In this paper we focused on methods of estimation of unrecorded alcohol consumption level. Present methods of estimation of unrevorded alcohol consumption allow only approximate estimation of unrecorded alcohol consumption level. Tacking into consideration the extreme importance of such kind of data, further investigation is necessary to improve the reliability of methods estimation of unrecorded alcohol consumption.

brain, histaminergic neurons, ultrastructure, alcohol
The aim of the present work was to analyze the ultrastructural changes developing :n cerebral histaminergic neurons in 24 mongrel white male rats after administration of ethanol in acute experimental conditions (single i.p. doses of 1 and 4 g kg), in subacute conditions (sole source of drinking fluid. 4 g kg. for" days), or chronic conditions (2-3 g kg day for 6 months). Administration of alcohol led to the development of a variety of u...

psychoactive substances, drug abusers, Narcological Register, population, Belarus
Aim. To evaluate the prevalence of psychoactive substance abuse among the population of Belarus.
Material and methods. The data on registered drug abusers, who were recorded in the Narcological Register in health care institutions between 1998 and 201 2, were analyzed.
Results. During that period the significant growth (by 3.5 times) in the number of recorded drug abusers was observed, mainly of those w...

Alcohol sales; suicide rates; ARIMA time series analysis; Russia; Belarus; 1970-2014.
Background; The Slavic countries of the former Soviet Union (fSU) Russia and Belarus retain one of the highest suicide rates in the world, despite a gradual decline over the past decade.
Aim: The present study aims to analyze whether population drinking is able to explain the dramatic fluctuations in suicide mortality in Russia and Belarus from the late Soviet to post-Soviet period.
Method: Trends i...

Stroke; age differences; cerebral blood flow; brain blood barrier.
Neonatal stroke is similar to the stroke that occurs in adults and produces a significant morbidity and long-term neurologic and cognitive deficits. There are important differences in the factors, inical events and outcomes associated with the stroke in infants and adults. However, anisms underlying age differences in the stroke development remain largely unknown. Therefore, treatment guidelines for neonatal stroke must ext...

atrial fibrillation, heart failure, cardiac fibrosis
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is associated with structural, electrical and contractile remodeling of the atria. Development and progression of atrial fibrosis is the hallmark of structural remodeling in AF and is considered to be substrate for AF perpetuation. In contrast, experimental and clinical data on impact of ventricular fibrotic processes in pathogenesis of AF and its complications are controversial. Ventricular fibrosis appears to c...
