Scientific interests: Application of various microbial objects for the preparation of cell
compounds including proteins, amino acids and nucleosises labelled with stable isotopes 2H,
13C, 15N, metabolism of stable isotopes; biological adaptation to 2H2O and effect of 2H2O on
living objects, adaptation to heavy water, molecular evolution.
Research: Preparation of isotopically labelled cell compounds with using microbial strains;
Biological adaptation to 2H2O; preparation of [2H]-and [13C]-amino acids with high levels of
enrichment via bioconvertion of
С2H3O2H/13CH3OH and 2H2O in methylotrophs
Brevibacterium methylicum and Methylobacillus flagellatum; the studying of L-Phe
biosynthesis by facultative methylotroph Brevibacterium methylicum in the presence of 2H2O;
biosynthesis of bacteriorhodopsin labeled with deuterium on the residues of aromatic amino
acids [2,3,4,5,62H5]phenylalanine, [3,52H2]tyrosine and [2,4,5,6,7-2H5]tryptophan; the growth
of Bacillus subtilis and biosynthesis of inosine on highly deuterated media, containing 2H2O
and deuterated biomass of methylotrophic bacterium B. methylicum; electron impact mass-
spectrometry and NMR in evaluation of levels of enrichment in labelled cell compounds.
