Based on the data of mass spectrometry of metals in the hair of 947 healthy individuals and 954 liquidators of the Chernobyl accident, the authors of the article propose to use some markers enabling to distinguish between the subcritical and critical phases in Na/K homeostasis of epidermal cells.
The main criterion for phase separation was the numerical values of Na and K at the Сthr point (the beginning of the critical phase), from which linearization begins on the Pareto distribution plot on a double logarithmic scale. The plotting for Na and K and location of the Cthr point was performed based on the results of hair spectrometry from 10,000 healthy individuals aged 20 - 45 years.
In the authors’ opinion, the following indicators can serve as additional distinguishing features of these phases: a) the cluster character of quantitative shifts in the metal-ligand homeostasis of metals such as Na, K, Al, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Li, Pb, V and Zn, against the background of oxidative/nitrosative stress; b) reliable positive Na-K and negative K-Zn bonds (Pearson) according to the data of mass spectrometry of metals; c) an increase in the numerical values of the synchronization index - an integral indicator of the tightness of linear connections (pairwise correlations) between metals.
