Multiple forms of dipeptidyl peptidase IV and fibroblast activation protein in brain tumors
Matrasová, Ivana ; Šedo, Aleksi (advisor) ; Kupcová Skalníková, Helena (referee) ; Modrianský, Martin (referee)
Proteolytic enzymes are known to contribute to the initiation, development and progression of a number of diseases. Dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) and fibroblast activation protein (FAP) are serine proteases with the unique ability to cleave dipeptides containing - highly evolutionarily conserved - proline at the penultimate position of the N- terminus of substrates/biologically active peptides. FAP also exhibits gelatinolytic activity, which it exerts during extracellular matrix remodeling processes. Glial brain tumors (gliomas) arise from resident transformed glial cells, whereas brain metastases originate from circulating transformed extracranial tumor cells. Our previous work has described an increased expression of DPP-IV and FAP in high-grade glioma tissues. The presence of DPP- IV and FAP in brain metastatic tissues has not been described to date. The aim of this thesis was to describe the multiple forms of DPP-IV and FAP, and to describe their cellular origin and possible regulation in brain tumors. DPP-IV and its molecular MW and pI forms were expressed predominantly by transformed glial cells, whereas FAP and its MW and pI forms were expressed by transformed and stromal cells present in GBM and brain metastatic tissues. The spectrum of multiple forms of DPP-IV and FAP in GBM tissues and...

Hamplová, Miroslava ; Kupcová, Helena (advisor) ; Mocná, Dagmar (referee)
Diplomová práce Idyla a antiidyla, Viktor Fischl: Kuropění versus Jan Křesadlo: Zámecký pán aneb Antikuro zkoumá dvě vybraná literární díla a vzájemně je srovnává. Reflektuje také jejich intertextový vztah, zařazuje je žánrově - jako idylickou prózu a parodický text - travestii, hledá v textu jejich typické žánrové prvky, pojmenovává je a charakterizuje. Styčné body v přístupech obou autorů nelézá především v rovině literárních postav a motivů, naopak diametrální rozdíly odkrývá v jyzoké rovině, časoprostoru, podstatné rozdíly vidí i v naračních strategiích.

Each moment has been closely examined so that one may understand the process of adaptation. The explanation of an adaptation process has been provided to support my claims. An opening chapter delves on the life and work of Ian McEwan, mentioning The Cement Garden which historical context is provided and on the remark regarding an evolutional process of literary work which is concerned with child protagonists. Author's inspirations and motives are also mentioned. Second chapter not only closely analyzes the novel and the crucial events, but also focuses on formal requirements, such as the narrator or the setting. Meanwhile the next chapter considers the theater adaptation and its accomplishments and downfalls. Brief explanation of possible adjustments is provided as is the difference between the prosaic text and the script. Final part is dedicated to the movie adaptation by Andrew Birkin.
