Summary. Series of novel aryl- and pyridinylamides of 3-[3,5-dioxy-1,2,4,5-tetrahydro-1,2,4-triazinyl-6]-propionic acid (TPA) was synthesized. A series of hybrid compounds of 2-[3,5-dioxy-1,2,4,5-tetrahydro-1,2,4-triazinyl-6]-ethyl-benzimidazol, -thiazol, -oxazol was produced via condensation of TPA in presence of polyphosphoric acid with appropriate o-amino-, o-mercapto- and o-hydroxy-ŕminobenzenes. Anticandidosis activity was found for 10 TPA arylamides within the range between 25.0 and 12.5 mkg/ml. Three arylamides, 7, 8 & 15, displayed fungicide effect for two Candida albicans strains upon inoculate loading of 1ő107 cells per 1.0 ml. The results obtained suggest the prospects of the compounds involved for further studies.

Keywords: arylamides of 3-[3,5-dioxy-1,2,4,5-tetrahydro-1,2,4-triazinyl-6]-propionic acid, synthesis, antifungal activity, Candida albicans.

Summary. Enzymatic-spectrophotometric method for L-arginine assay based on human arginase I isolated from the recombinant yeast strain Hansenula polymorpha was developed. The new method is selective and rather simple. Linear detection range was estimated to be from 0.007 to 0.1 mĚ in reaction mixture, and detection limit – 0.005 mM L-arginine. The method was tested on the real samples of L-arginine-containing commercial pharmaceuticals pro-ducts. It was shown, that the estimated L-arginine contents were in a good correlation with that declared by producers, with results of referent chemical (R=0.998) and some other methods.

Keywords: L-arginine, arginase I, enzymatic method, diacetyl-(2,3-butandione) monooxime.

Summary. In this work on the basis of selected descriptors the quantitative relationships structure-partition constant in two phase systems chloroform – gas, chloroform – water, 1-octanol – water has been constructed. The search of descriptors has been done by using the exhaustive search and genetic algorithm. The optimization of algorithm parameters was done that allow to reduce the time of calculations. The relationships were constructed with and without using the group of molecular properties descriptors which are calculated on the basis of empirical models. The constructed relationships have high goodness-of-fit (the correlation coefficient is not lower than 0.92) and high predictive capacity.

Keywords: structure-property relationships, partition, descriptor, genetic algorithm.

Summary. The effect of drugs on physico-chemical parameters of the monolayer films made of distearoylphosphatidylcholine were studied. It is shown, that this properties can be used to predict the permeability of drugs through the blood-brain barrier and skin. Quantitative values of physico-chemical monolayer films parameters can be used to build more accurate computer models of permeability compounds across biological membranes.

Summary. Experimental vibrational spectra (Raman and infrared absorption) of microcrystalline sanguinarine chloride were obtained at room temperature. Calculated vibrational spectra were received within DFT B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) theory level for iminium and alkanolamine forms. Based on correlation between experimental and calculated data the vibrational spectrum was interpreted in detail in the frequency range of 600-1700 sm-1. Experimental and calculated spectra of intramolecular vibrations were found to be closely correlated.

Keywords: sanguinarine, vibrational spectra, DFT, DNA intercalators.
