Degradation of mechanical properties of magnesium alloy
Sedláček, R. ; Suchý, Tomáš ; Padovec, Z.
In this study, biodegradation behaviour of WE43 magnesium alloy have been studied and compared during exposure to three different media commonly used to simulate the conditions of human body environment. Magnesium alloys emerged as a new class of bioresorbable implant materials. Their applications reduce certain risks associated with conventional permanent implants. Biodegradation behaviour of the WE43 magnesium alloy was observed under Dulbecco Modified Eagle Medium (DMEM, Sigma Aldrich) supplemented with 5 % fetal bovine serum and gentamicin antibiotic as standard. The samples were stored in the medium at 37 degrees C and in a 5 % CO2 atmosphere. The second type of medium was Hank's Salt Balanced Solution (HBSS, Sigma Aldrich), which simulates the inorganic composition of blood plasma. HBSS was tempered at 37 degrees C. The last solution was an acidic solution of HCl + NaCl (pH2) with pH similar to 2 (0.01M HCl and 0.14M NaCl) tempered at 37 degrees C. The acidic type of solution was used to simulate a local acidic environment associated with osteoclast activity during bone remodelling. Changes in the mechanical properties of the samples during exposure to simulated body conditions were observed.

Conservative treatment of spinal deformities in childhood
Sedláček, Radek ; Černý, Pavel (advisor) ; Šolc, Zdeněk (referee)
Title: Conservative treatment of spinal deformities in childhood Objectives: The main aim of this work is to point out the possibility of conservative treatment of spine deformity in a comprehensive view and logical sequence. At the beginning of the theoretical parts, the anatomy and the biomechanics of the joints are adduced and briefly explained, which are necessary for understanding. Below are examples of deformity sleep and the possibility of their correction. Also, the constructional differences of the torso orthoses used for correction and stabilization of the spine, as well as their functional properties, will be mentioned. In the end, in the special parts of this work, the technological and manufacturing process for the production of fuselage orthosis will be written. Methods: To solve this problem will be drawn from specialized literature, magazines and publications, concerning in particular matters of spinal deformity and its proper position. In the chapter on the manufacturing procedure of fuselage bones, my experience will be used in practice. Results: In the conservative treatment of spinal deformities, the interdependence of the components leading to the maximization of success in the treatment of spinal deformity is very important. This is mainly the cooperation between the doctor...
Detached house

The subject of this thesis is a design of new building detached house with attic flat in Velké Karlovice. House has three flats and house is designed for ten to twelve permanent residents. The object is situated on a slightly sloping land on the outskirts of the village Velké Karlovice. Part of the building is a garage for three cars. The main entrance is oriented towards the main street. Plan dimensions of the house are 9,5 × 25 m. Vertical constructions are made of ceramic bricks of Porotherm, ceiling construction is designed using technology of Spiroll. Stairs construction is a precast element. The building is roofed by saddle roof with purlins. Part of the thesis is a project documentation for a construction including constructional details, fire safety, thermal engineering and acoustic solutions. The project documentation had been eleborated in an AutoCAD program.
Chemical signals and reproductive processes of the house mouse (Mus musculus)
Černá, Martina ; Stopka, Pavel (advisor) ; Petr, Jaroslav (referee) ; Sedláček, Radislav (referee)
The aim of my thesis was to identify proteins involved in chemical communication and especially those that are involved in sexual signalling. Volatile chemical signals are transported with lipocalins in their beta-barrel structure to present their ligands to receptors or out of the body. Thus, I focused on the identification of these proteins in saliva and vaginal secretion of the house mouse using proteomic and transcriptomic approaches. Due to a cyclic manner of reproduction and its hormonal control, I have also focused on the role of estradiol on sperm phenotype in the laboratory mouse. We have identified an elevated sexual dimorphism in several lipocalins (i.e. 10 out of 20) in the saliva proteome where they may play a role in sexual signalling (i.e. similar to their described roles in the mouse urine). Interestingly, vaginal secretion also contains lipocalins and they rise from proestrus to estrus and remain steady during metestrus. Such variation provides evidence that they serve sexual signalling, however, due to their elevated levels during metestrus it is most likely that their ligands function as signals and not the proteins themselves. On the level of sperm phenotype, we have provided evidence, that experimental concentrations of estradiol have differential effects on sperm. This is due...
Expression of ubiquitin ligases in gastrointestinal tract
Pícková, Markéta ; Sedláček, Radislav (advisor) ; Čermák, Lukáš (referee)
Ubiquitin (Ub) ligases are important regulatory and signalling molecules, which are involved in majority of cellular processes such as differentiation, DNA repair, and regulation of energetic metabolism or immune response. E3 Ubiquitin ligases are also responsible for pathophysiological changes in the organism and their activity is associated with many human diseases including cancers. This makes E3 Ubiquitin ligases to be new diagnostic markers and interesting pharmaceutical targets. Based on previous studies, these enzymes evince very specific expression in the level of tissues or cell populations. Determination of this specific expression is important for a better understanding of their biological function. In this diploma thesis we systematically screened presence of 370 genes of E3-Ub ligases in gastrointestinal tract under physiological conditions and during acute inflammatory damage of distal colon. Obtained data allowed us to select genes, which can play important role in homeostasis as well as pathophysiology and regeneration of gastrointestinal tract. The screening was based on the expression profiling using qPCR, followed by in situ hybridization to determine the exact localization of the gene expression within tissues. From qPCR analysis was predicted hundred thirty seven candidates for...
Studies towards biological function of ubiquitin E3 ligase Rnf121 in vivo and in vitro
Škarabellová, Kateřina ; Sedláček, Radislav (advisor) ; Čermák, Lukáš (referee)
Although the RING finger protein 121 (RNF121) is a highly conserved E3 ubiquitin ligase from Caenorhabditis elegans to human, its function is poorly understood and in higher eukaryotes it has been studied only at in vitro level. RNF121 has been described to have various functions: i) it was ascribed to function as a broad regulator of NF-κB activation, ii) it was shown to control intracellular trafficking of various membrane proteins, and iii) its downregulation leads to apoptosis. Moreover, RNF121 might have a role in cancer as its expression was found to be 16.4-fold higher in patients suffering from Barrett esophagus (precancerous lesion of esophageal adenocarcinoma) and was even more increased in esophageal adenocarcinoma comparing to healthy population. In addition, RNF121 gene is localized in the candidate region containing breast cancer susceptibility genes. To gain insight into physiological functions of RNF121, Rnf121 knockout mice (Rnf121tm1b(EUCOMM)Hmgu ) were generated in the Czech Centre for Phenogenomics and further studied in our laboratory. Rnf121+ /- intercross breedings showed a prenatal lethal phenotype of Rnf121-/- embryos, which were dying prior embryonic day (E) 11.5. Preliminary experiments carried out in our laboratory showed numerous vascular defects in null mutant embryo,...
Posttranslational modifications affecting function of nuclear localization signal
Šebrle, Erik ; Sedláček, Radislav (advisor) ; Venit, Tomáš (referee)
Transport of proteins to the nucleus through a nuclear envelope is controlled mostly via nuclear localization signal (NLS). Nuclear localization signal is rich in positively charged amino acids arginine and lysine. It was observed that activity of this NLS could be regulated through a phosphorylation of serine in its close proximity. Either a phosphorylation of serine or phosphomimetic changes of these "presequences" could represent an important mechanism regulating a localization of protein in cells in relation to a cellular activation. In our laboratory was identified protein - Fragile X mental retardation syndrome 1 neighbor (Fmr1nb), whose cellular localization could be driven by this posttranslational modification.
