Vliv zinku ve výživě drůbeže na senzorické vlastnosti masa
Němečková, Šárka
Experiment was conducted, in which were served different levels of zinc for the cockerels Ross 308. The aim of my study was to discover, if the level 204 mg Zn/kg of feed mixture will affect the sensory characteristics of the thigh and breast muscle after 30 days of storing. From the sensory analysis, performed by the 12 evaluators, appears, that the higher level of zinc did not have a statistically significant impact on the sensory characteristics of the thigh and breast muscle in majority parameters in my study. Exception was a statistically significant difference (p < 0,05) in aroma at the thigh muscle after correction of evaluator (Zn 24 mg was evaluated 1,03 +- 0,02 and Zn 204 mg was evaluated 0,97 +- 0,02). In the breast muscle of the experimental group was relatively the best rate the juiciness - 5 % above the average. In the thigh muscle of the experimental group was relatively the best rate also the juiciness - 10 % above the average.
eating of the veterinary clinic
Němečková, Šárka ; Blasinski, Petr (referee) ; Počinková, Marcela (advisor)
The aim of this bachelor thesis is a processing of a project regarding heating system and warm water production for the veterinary clinic. The building has two overground floors and flat roof. A source of the heat for the building is an air-water heat pump. Heating surfaces are panel radiators. There is natural ventilation in the building mostly.
Targeting of viral nanoparticles to cancer specific receptors
Žáčková Suchanová, Jiřina ; Španielová, Hana (advisor) ; Němečková, Šárka (referee) ; Ulbrich, Pavel (referee)
The aim of this thesis is to reveal the potential of mouse polyomavirus (MPyV) based virus-like particles (VLPs) as possible nanocarriers for directed delivery of therapeutic or diagnostic compounds to specific cells or tissues. We have chosen mouse polyomavirus VLPs because they do not contain viral DNA and are considered safe for utilization in bio-applications. In our research, we used a chemical approach for retargeting of MPyV based VLPs from their natural receptor to cancer cells. The chemical modification of the capsid surface exposed lysines by an aldehyde-containing reagent enabled conjugation of VLPs to selected molecules: transferrin and inhibitor of glutamate carboxypeptidase II (GCPII). Transferrin, as a transporter of iron to metabolically active cells, targeted VLPs to numerous types of cancer cells overexpressing the transferrin receptor. On the other hand, GCPII serves as a transmembrane marker specific for prostate cancer cells and conjugation of its inhibitor to VLPs resulted in successful recognition of these cells. Electron microscopy was used for visualization of modified VLPs and flow cytometry together with confocal microscopy for investigation of cell specific interactions and VLP uptake. Furthermore, we explored the influence of serum proteins on VLPs. The abundance of...
Major structural protein of Polyomaviruses: Interactions with host cell structures
Mrkáček, Michal ; Horníková, Lenka (advisor) ; Němečková, Šárka (referee)
The main structural protein VP1 is the product of late polyomaviral genes and it is the largest and the most abundant protein of the whole polyomaviral capsid. Because of the low coding capacity of the polyomaviral genomes, it is considered that in addition to its structural role the VP1 protein might have some additional functions in the late phase of the infectious cycle. This diploma thesis is exactly on these additional functions. In the case of the VP1 protein of mouse polyomavirus, it was observed that the protein is capable of binding to the structure of cellular microtubules. The first objective of this work was to test whether pentamers of the VP1 protein are able of this binding without the participation of other cellular (or viral) proteins. Based on an in vitro experiment, we showed that protein VP1 binds to the structure of microtubules very inefficiently. The second objective of this work was to prepare a detection system that would allow an identification of potential interaction partners of BK polyomavirus VP1 protein. Therefore, expression plasmids producing the N and C-terminally tagged VP1 protein were prepared. These tagged proteins had the property of being biotinylated whilst being produced in the transfected cells. By using affinity chromatography, the entire protein complexes...
New chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) for therapy of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) infection
Kroutilová, Marie ; Němečková, Šárka (advisor) ; Forstová, Jitka (referee)
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV, Herpesviridae) can cause severe complications in the infected individuals undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Nowadays, these patients are treated using antivirotics or HCMV-specific T cells derived from the seropositive graft donor. This study explored the possibility of redirecting HCMV-non-specific T cells from a seronegative donor towards HCMV-infected cells via chimeric antigen receptor (CAR), i.e. artificially designed T cell receptor. Viral glycoprotein B (gB) has been selected as a target for this receptor. Published sequence of a single chain variable fragment of a human antibody was used for the design of the CAR against gB (gBCAR). After the verification of production and surface localization in cell lines, gBCAR was being introduced into human T cells via lentiviral vectors. Human fetal lung fibroblasts (LEP) infected with HCMV were used as target cells after the expression of gB at their surface was demonstrated. gBCAR functionality was evaluated by the incubation of modified T cells with infected cells and subsequent analysis of media for IFNγ concentration, which was significantly higher in the setting of gBCAR T cells incubated with HCMV-LEP than in the control incubations. The results obtained show the specificity of gBCAR against...
