TOMSK, Nov 30 – RIA Tomsk. Scientists of the
Tomsk State University (TSU) will make experiments on cultivation of cells of
animals and people; the obtained data are planned to be used for development of
technology of treatment of autism, obesity and other diseases without drugs,
the press service of the higher education institution reported on Wednesday.
It is specified that now there is a preparation
of sterile rooms and the equipment for cultivation of cells in TSU. Experiments
with use of cellular crops are a trend of world science, as they bring
researches to a new level. Use of new technologies will allow scientists to
develop exercises, which will help sick people to cope with serious illnesses
"We are engaged in studying of proteins –
myokine, which represents biologically active agents and developed as a result
of physical exercises. Knowing the mechanism of their origin, we will be able
to pick up exercises, which will allow to replace medicines and to treat
cognitive frustration without tablets", – the employee of the Faculty of
Physical Education of TSU Anastasia Kabachkova is quoted in the message.
Earlier it was reported that the TSU scientists
were the first in Russia who began to study myokine. These substances are
emitted with an organism during sports exercises. The scientists already know,
that these proteins are analogs of cytokines, which are allocated with immune
system, that the organism could struggle with various diseases.

According to the higher education institution,
during the new researches it is planned to grow up cellular crops and to
influence them electric current, that will imitate physical exercises and
provoke development of myokine in muscle cells. The grown-up cells are planned
to be used in development of new technologies of treatment of cognitive
disorders (autism, memory loss) and the illnesses, caused by disturbance of a
metabolism (diabetes mellitus, obesity).
"The main complexity in cultivation of
cells is creation of the sterile environment. Violation of sterility can spoil
the end result. We are interested in muscle cells myoblasts, but development of
the general technology of work with cells of mammals will allow to grow up many
types of cells, individual conditions are selected for everyone", – the
graduate student of the Faculty of Physical Education of TSU Ksenia Milovanova
Milovanova has a training in laboratory of
physical chemistry of membranes of the Faculty of Biology of the Moscow State
University (MSU). Besides work with cells in the laboratory, which is headed by
professor of MSU and TSU Sergey Orlov, the graduate student learns to define
concentration of protein in the received test, to carry out their electrophoresis
in gel for a further research.
