Nanoparticle-Mediated Delivery System for Gene Therapy
Dvořáková, Nikola ; Ellederová, Zdeňka (advisor) ; Šálek, Petr (referee)
Gene editing with the CRISPR/Cas9 system is one of the options that sets a new trend in the development of gene therapy. The most commonly used delivery of DNA into the cells are via viruses. Nevertheless, they are often unable to take CRISPR/Cas9 system, which can be bigger than several kb. Nanoparticles (NPs), as non-viral transporters, seem to be a good alternative delivery system. For this work magnetic Fe3O4 NPs (MNPs) were selected, because of their excellent properties such as multifunctionality, biocompatibility, easy degradation and simple synthesis. The aim of this work was to synthesise MNPs and a complex of MNPs coated with PEI/CRISPR-Cas9 plasmid and to characterize them by physicochemical methods. The created complex MNPs/PEI/CRISPR-Cas9 was defined by exact parameters that are suitable for possible cell uptake. The hypothesis of stabilization of the MNPs/CRISPR-Cas9 plasmid complex by polyethylenimine (PEI), which can also protect plasmid DNA against restriction endonucleases, was verified. Next a stable modified cell line HEK293-TLR3, designed to evaluate the efficacy of double strand break (DSB) repair by nonhomologous end joining (NHEJ) or homologous recombination (HR) was, transfected with the synthesised MNPs/PEI/CRISPR-Cas9 complex. The results indicate a 25% transfection...
Benefits of Neoadjuvant Therapy in Colorectal Cancer Treatment
This Bachelor's thesis focuses on benefits of neoadjuvant therapy for colorectal cancer. The thesis is divided into a theoretical and a practical part. The theoretical part contains data I have compiled from available literature, scholarly articles and professional websites. I concentrated most closely on colon and rectal anatomy, screening, diagnosis and treatment of colorectal cancer. The aim of the Bachelor's thesis is to compare the extent of colorectal cancer before and after neoadjuvant therapy. Furthermore, the second aim is to determine the number of radically operated patients after preoperative treatment. The practical part consists of data from the archive of medical records at the Department of Oncology in the České Budějovice Hospital, a. s. The observed factors were age and gender of the patient, diagnosis, localization and TNM classification, type of neoadjuvant therapy, initiation and termination of therapy, type of operation and its initiation. The last factor was the extent of disease after surgery. In total, I evaluated 50 patients who met the criteria. I processed the data into comprehensive graphs and spreadsheets. The collected data show an improvement in the extent of disease in 84 % of patients. 5 % of patients had the same TNM classification and the disease worsened in 11 % of patients. Complete or nearly complete remission occurred in 6 patients (14 %). 88 % of patients from the whole research group were radically operated. 20 patients (40 %) underwent rectal resection and 24 patients (48 %) underwent rectal amputation. 6 remaining patients did not have any surgery. Two patients had an inoperable tumour, others were not operated due to their high age, weight or because it was their wish. The results from the practical part can provide feedback to the Department of Oncology in the České Budějovice Hospital. Next, it can also serve as a study material for students and the general public.

The main goal of this thesis is to evaluate the fulfillment of the potential of Prague theatre institutions in the domestic and incoming tourism of the Czech republic, to find the most significant Prague theatre institutions and compare the way they present their offer with institutions in competitive destinations. The first two chapters introduce the cultural tourism in general, in the Czech republic and in Prague. The following chapter describes the offer of Prague theatres and the fulfillment of its potential, where the evaluation is based on the results of a research, carried out by the author herself. The last chapter presents a comparison of presentation on websites of chosen theatres in Berlin, Dresden and Vienna with Prague.
Generation of large animal models using genome editing
Dvořáková, Nikola ; Ellederová, Zdeňka (advisor) ; Kašpárek, Petr (referee)
The principle of gene engineering is the intervention to the DNA of the studied organism. After the discovery of the programmed endonucleases, there has been a great expansion of this technique and it also accelerated the possibilities to create large animal models. Until recently, large animal models were very difficult to be generated. These endonucleases include zinc finger nuclease (ZFN), transcription activator like effector nuclease (TALEN) and CRISPR/Cas9. All endonucleases produce locally specific splicing in the targeted segment of the genome. This splicing is most easily corrected by the non-homologous ends joining (NHEJ), so then it is possible to create a so -called knock-out (KO) model. The second type of repair is homologous recombination (HR) using a DNA template with homologous arms. This makes it possible to create a knock-in (KI) model that cannot be created without specific endonucleases in large animal models due to the low natural HR. This work summarizes the history, technique and the use of programmed endonucleases for the creation of large animal models. These models have a great use in biomedicine, mostly in preclinical research, they are also significant in agriculture and even in the environment protection. Key words: large animal model, transgenesis, genome editing,...

"Electric houses" - architecture and equipment of progressive tenement houses in late 1930's in Prague
Dvořáková, Nikola Tora ; Biegel, Richard (advisor) ; Macek, Petr (referee)
The bachelor thesis is focused on the phenomenon of electric houses in Prague namely rental houses from the second half of 1930s. Their basic element is the omnipresent electric enegry which fundamentally changed the living conditions in the apartment houses. Electric houses architecture is based on the international style principles which blend the luxourious living standards located in the suburbs with more economical city apartments. Electric houses represent spectacular form of housing beside the contemporary trend of minimal residential units. These houses became one of the major Prague street components despite the excessive luxury and supposed uneconomical electric energy. They replaced the period of family houses in the suburbs. The thesis deals with the principles and terms connected to these electric houses presented on several different architectural projects.

Dvořáková, Nikola ; Vaněk, Jan (advisor) ; Sylvie, Sylvie (referee)
This diploma thesis of project charakter, deals with revitalization castle garden of castle Liblice in central region of Czech Republic. The main goal of this thesis is based on the curent and historical state of the castle garden, to design a project with new plantings in the parter so it imitates the original baroque style in whitch it was created efore. After that propose suggestions of procedures suitable for the revitalization of the garden and it is greenery. Theoretical part of the thesis called Literary review is focused not only on history of the village where the castle is situated but also on the history of the castle itself, baroque gardens in general and least but not last the architect of the castle and it is garden. There are also described general characteristic of the trees and shrubs, which are in the garden as well as descriptions of work during revitalization such as tree cutting techniques or lawn care. In the analytical part is briefly described charakter of the area from its location to its climatic data. There is also described curent state of the castle park focusing mainly on the architectural errors and interventions, which are going to be necesary to execute during the revitalisation. List of greenery contains all trees and shrubs in the garden since 2005 and color features the ones removed during past years. After the consultation with the director of the castle there are mentioned activities and actions for which is the castle and garden used nowadays most of which also contributes along with the curent survy to the suggestions and interventions suitable for this revitalization. Project part deals with the design of the parter behind the castle. This design is created so it imitates the former baroque parter as much as possible, but also respects condotions of its curent use. All expenses in this design will be calculated in the form of ekonomic balance. Lastly in this project, there are proposed another important interventions for revitalisation of the castle garden, They are in the form of current state photos with drawn in suggested changes. This thesis will be beneficiary for the Czech Academy of Sciences, which owns this castle and it is garden .
