Contracted K-groups of the Homology and Cohomology over the Pairs of Copresheaves and Presheaves respectively

Presented June 30, 1999


Abstract. Alexandrov - Cech’s K-groups of a homology and cohomology of topological space above the pairs of copresheaves and presheaves, respectively, are defined to be contracted. For these groups the duality theorem is proved, In that special case, when a complex K, consisting from one point and both pairs of copresheaves and presheaves, is constant, the defined groups coincide with the earlier known contracted groups of a homology and cohomology. Besides the exact K-cohomologous sequence is under construction, which gives and estimation to the contracted K-homologous group taken above the pair of presheaves through the contracted K-groups of cohomologies, taken above presheaves.

Key words: copresheaf, presheaf, contracted groups, chain, cochain.

Effect of Sink Demand on Photosynthesis, Transport and Distribution of Photoassimilates in Grapevine

Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy N. Nutsubidze, December 21, 1998


Abstract. The effect of sink (shoot apex, cluster or both of them) removal on source photosynthesis intensity, photoassimilates’ transport and distribution in grapevine shoot (Vitis vinifera L., var “Rkatsiteli”), in berry set and berry intensive growth phases was studied. Also the specific weight of leaves and starch accumulation in leaves was investigated.

It was established that the intensity of photosynthesis decreased in all experimental variants especially while removing both sinks. In berry set phase the removal of top, as of stronger sink, had more influence on transport and changed it significantly. In berry intensive growth phase, when the cluster is the main consumer, its removal increased the upward transport. While studying leaf specific weight and starch content, it was revealed, that in berry set phase the shoot apex removal caused leaf specific weight and starch content increase. In berry intensive growth phase leaf specific weight and starch content increased in leaves of that zone, which was closer to removed sink.

Key words: sink, source, photosynthesis, transport of photoassimilates, specific weight, starch, grapevine.

Presented by Member of the Academy G. Sanadze, November 16, 1998


Abstract. Three species of herbaceous plants: Glycine hispida, Max., Calendula officinalis, L., Linum usitatissimum L. were irradiated with additionalultraviolet (UV) source, using the balb DPT-400. High intensity irradiation stimulated photosynthesis in soybean (“A sectio 2200, “C” section 186 J.m-2), while middle (“A”-1000, “C”-60 J.m-2) and low (“A”-204, “C”-20 J.m-2) intensities-in allplants did. The high level of 14C incorporation in carbohydrates was established, espesially using low intensity of radiation. Biosynthesis of glucose and fructose increased. Simultaneously with the increase of photosynthesis, middle intensity of radiation stimulated the synthesis of amino acids (soybean, lint), especially of alanine. Among the organic acids biosynthesis of oxalic and malic acids was high.

Key words: ultraviolet radiation, photosynthesis, photoassimilates, soybean, calendula, lint.

Abstract. Three assemblies of bivalents are produced in diploid forms of persimmon and in each assembly five bivalents are associated. Diploids produce pollen grains containing n 15 and n 5 chromosomes. In tetraploid forms six assmeblies of bivalents are produced and in each assembly five bivalent are associated. Tetraploids produce pollen grains. They contain n 30, n 15 and n 5 chromosomes. Nine assemblies of bivalents are produced in hexaploid forms and in each assembly five bivalents are associated. Hexaploids produce pollen grains containing n 45, n 15 and n 5 chromosomes. Five-chromosome pollen grains formation shows that the basal chromosome number of persimmon is five.

A Role of Endothelial NO Synthase in Mossy Fiber Long-Term Potentiation in the Hippocampus

Presented June 21, 1999


Abstract. A roel of endothelial NO synthase (eNOS) in mossy fiber long-term potentiation (LTP) was tested on slices from mice, where eNOS was genetically disrupted. It was found that in the eNOS knock-out mice the non-NMDA dependent LTP induced by tetanic stimulation is markedly reduced. However LTP was normal in hippocampal slices of wild-type mice after N-nitro-L-Arginine (NL-Arg., an inhibitor of NOS) application. This result suggest that eNOS is not directly incolved in generation of LTP, but eNOS deficit during development affect on the system, which is responsible for the mossy fiber LTP.

Key words: Hippocampus, mossy-fiber LTP, NO, NL-Arg.

Electrophysiological Investigation of the Input from Amygdaliod Complex to the Posterior Sylvian Gyrus

Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy V. Mosidze, January 25, 1998


Abstract. Responses of single units of posterior sylvian gyrus (PGS) to stimulation of the amygdaloid complex were recorded in immobilized cats. Following the stimulation 88 (36.88%) responsive units out of a total of 225 units were observed. The pattern of response was minly of excitatory type. Neurones responded ortho-and antidromically, thus confirming the existence of bilateral direct temporo-amygdaloid connections. The highest degree of reactivity of PSG units was found after the stimulation of lateral nucleus. According to the latency three types of responses were revealed: short (3-12 msec), middle (12-22 msec) and long latency (22-85 msec) responses. Short latency group of units was always activated from lateral nucleus. The results lend support to the contention that there is a direct pathway from lateral mucleus of the amygdaloid complex to the PSG.

Key words: posterior sylcain gyrus, amygdaloid complex, unitary response, direct connection lateral nucleus, latensy.

Revealing of the Temperature- and Water-Stress Resistant Species of Plants by Delayed Fluorescence Method

Presented by Corr. Member of the Academy N. Aleksidze, July 12, 1999


Abstract. The difference among the studied species of potato according to the temperature-and water-spress resistance was clearly recealed, by means of delayed fluorescence method which was expressed in the change of delayed fluorescence parameters during the stress-factor effects on the electric transport of photosynthetic membrane, permeability and dynamic regulation mechanism. Ca2+-difinency depressively affects the temperature acclimation spacies “Temp” with normal Ca2+ is 460C and that of non-acclimated is 440C. The Ca2+-dificiency decreases heatersistance of the acclimated plant from 460C to 44.50C and that of non-acclimated plant from 440C to 43.50C. By means of delayed fluorescence method it was revealed that Ca2+-defficiency depressive effect on the acclimative and reparative processes is expressed differently in various species of the plant.

Key words: delayed fluorescence, temperature-stress, water stress.

It has been concluded that formation of polycystic ovary syndrome greatly depends on stress-factors effect. Hence, in the treatment of the mentioned disease beseides the up to now approbated methods of hormon-therapy, psychotherapy should be extensively introduced.
