A. V. Palladin was among the first researchers of vitamins: it and his pupils revealed disbolism at various avitaminosis, studied vitamin resources of the country; it synthesized a water-soluble analog of phthiocol — the Vikasolum which was widely used in to lay down. to practice. Its researches on one of the leading problems of biochemistry of muscles — to clarification of a role of creatine in an organism are known; works
A. V. Palladina on biochemistry of muscular contraction formed the basis of ideas of the biochemical nature of processes of exhaustion, rest and a training of muscles that promoted development of physiology of work and sport. And. V. Palladiya was also a pioneer in the area funkts, biochemistry of a nervous system; it and his pupils studied biochemical topography of nervous tissue, processes of transport of ions in structures of a nervous system, investigated features of exchange of proteins, nucleinic to - t and carbohydrate and phosphorus connections in nervous tissue at excitement and braking.
