Study of phosphorylation of inorganic pyrophosphatase from Streptococcus pneumoniae
Štechová, Michaela ; Doubravová, Linda (advisor) ; Svobodová, Jaroslava (referee)
The human patogen Streptococcus pneumoniae encodes a single copy of eukaryotic-like Ser/Thr protein kinase StkP. StkP regulates virulence, competence, stress resistence, gene expression and plays a role in the regulation of cell division cycle. Analysis of phosphoproteome maps of the wild type and stkP mutant strain of S. pneumoniae showed that in vivo StkP phosphorylates several putative substrates including Mn-dependent inorganic pyrophosphatase PpaC. Mass spectrometry analysis identified two phosphorylation sites in an active site of the protein. Pyrophosphatases are essential enzymes that catalyze hydrolysis of inorganic pyrophosphate produced during various biosynthetic reactions that utilize ATP. Changes in pyrophosphatase activity have been described to have global effects on cell metabolism, growth and division of bacteria. The aim of this thesis was to investigate the phosphorylation of inorganic pyrophosphatase PpaC in S. pneumoniae. Gene ppaC was cloned, expressed in E. coli and protein was purified via affinity chromatography. Phosphorylation of PpaC by StkP was examined in a kinase assay but we did not confirm that PpaC is a direct substrate of StkP in vitro. Further we prepared a set of mutants in ppaC gene. We replaced two presumable phosphoaminoacids identified by mass-spectrometry with...

Comunnity Service Odere in South Bohemia Region
ŠTĚCHOVÁ, Michaela
This work deal with the Community service order, its enactment given by the law no. 140/1961 Sb. (Criminal code) and 141/1961 Sb. (Code of criminal procedure) and by the changes concerning this punishment under the rule of law no. 40/2009 Sb. (Criminal code) with validity from 1.1.2010. Furthermore, the work deal with role of Probation and mediation service in verification of Community service orders with regard to routine in Southern Bohemia. In the end of the work are used a statistical data concerning the number of Community service orders in Sothern Bohemia in the years 2001-2009.
