Use of fluorescence methods for the study of protein interactions
Johaníková, Klára ; Bezděková,, Jaroslava (referee) ; Pavelicová, Kristýna (advisor)
The diploma thesis "Use of fluorescence methods for the study of protein interactions" is focused on the use of fluorescence methods for the study of protein interactions using electromigration methods and Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET). The aim of this work was to create a bioconjugate of metallothionein (MT) protein with quantum dots (QDs) and commercial dyes. FRET was subsequently studied between these conjugates. QDs were synthesized under UV light and conjugation with MT was performed via a carbodiimide zerolengthcrooss-linker (EDC / sulfo-NHS), which serves to activate carboxyl groups and allows bioconjugation of the ligand by covalent bonding. Due to the high proportion of cysteines in MT, this protein has a very high affinity for metals. It is also involved in scavenging free radicals and there are studies that show that MT is overexpressed in cancer cells. Attention was also paid to the study of MT dimerization, which leads to an understanding of oxidative dimerization of MT and thus can contribute to understanding the formation of free radicals in the body and to deepen the knowledge about neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson's or Alzheimer's disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The formation of the MT dimer was confirmed by energy transfer between the donor (QDs) and the acceptor (commercial dye-cyanine) through the physical phenomenon of FRET and MALDI-TOF-MS.

The thesis entitled Barrique wine deals in the teoretical part with technology of production of red wine from grape harvesting after wine training. This is followed by the ri-pening of wine in barrique special barrels whose chemical wood composition is described the same as its influence on the wine quality. Furthermore the thesis describes the chemical composition of wine and biologically active substances in barrique wines. The last chapter of the theoretical part deals with methods in the analysis of polyphenolic compounds. In the practical part the work focuses on the identification of polyphenolic compounds in barrique wines. This happens in seven samples of wines and on the monitoring of changes in the content of substances during extraction of oak chips in ethanol. For detection High performance liquid chromatography in tandem with a mass spectrometry was used.
Analýza biologicky aktivních látek ve funkčních potravinách - flavonoidní látky
Pavelicová, Kristýna
Bachelor thesis entitled Analysis of Biologically Active Compounds in Functional Foods - Flavonoid Substances deals with the characterization of functional foods, their main aspects, agents and impact on human health. It also describes how flavonoids in terms of chemical structure, so the occurrence of a positive effect on the human body. The last chapter discusses the methods used for the analysis of flavonoid compounds.
