2020 UNIVERSITY OF PARDUBICE FACULTY OF CHEMICAL TECHNOLOGY Doctoral Thesis: NEPHROTOXICITY TESTING IN VITRO Author: Mgr. Jiří Handl, Ph.D. Supervisor: doc. RNDr. Tomáš Roušar, Ph.D. Abstract The doctoral thesis deals with in vitro testing of nephrotoxic effects of substances in immortalized human proximal tubular cells HK-2. The basic aim of the thesis was to introduce and optimize the cultivation of HK-2 cells under different culture conditions, to characterize the cultivation and growth stability of HK-2 cells and last but not least to characterize the nephrotoxic effect of cadmium in HK-2 cell line using bioanalytical and biochemical methods. The introduction summarizes the basic rules and conditions for long-term cultivation of cell lines. Furthermore, HK-2 cells and their importance in nephrotoxicity testing are characterized in detail. The thesis also mentions methods for monitoring toxic effects of substances with focus on measuring cell viability and oxidative stress. The outcomes of the thesis are characterizing nephrotoxic effects of CdCl2 in HK-2 cells. The results part describes obtained findings and the discussions follows. Keywords Nephrotoxicity; In vitro cultivation; HK-2 cell line; Cell viability; Cadmium.
